I'm going to go ahead and try to refrain from using a "Sorry" pun but no promises. Anyways, a lawsuit filed by artist Casey Dienel, who goes by the moniker White Hinterland, against Justin Bieber for allegedly biting a vocal portion off her song "Ring The Bell" on his hit track "Sorry" has been dismissed, TMZ reports.
Compare the two tracks for yourself. Listen to Bieber's "Sorry" below and White Hinterland's "Ring The Bell" up top.
The lawsuit was filed by Casey Dienel back in 2016. The Skrillex and BloodPop produced track "Sorry" was featured on Bieber's fourth, and most recent, studio album Purpose. The song was a massive hit, reaching the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
In a now-deleted post made to Facebook, Hinterland wrote "I poured my blood, sweat, and tears into writing and producing 'Ring the Bell,' and I am proud of the finished product, which Rolling Stone listed as one of its 'favorite songs, albums, and videos."
Hinterland continued, "Throughout my career, I have worked very hard to preserve my independence and creative control, thus it came as a shock to hear my work used and exploited without permission."
