(WXYZ) - Singer Carly Rae Jepsen is being sued for song theft.
Jepsen is one of four people named in a new lawsuit surrounding her hit "Good Time".
Owl City's Adam Young, and two additional writers, Matt Thiessen and Brian Lee, are also mentioned.
READ: Official Complaint
The case was brought by Alabama singer Allyson Nichole Burnett.
She claims "Good Time" copies her 2010 song "Ah, It's a Love Song".
The complaint claims the song closely mimics a "unique vocal motif" from her track.
What do you think? Listen to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Good Time" here.
Now here's Allyson Burnett's song, "Ah, It's a Love Song".
Burnett claims that she suffered "emotional and psychological damage" as a result of her song allegedly being ripped off.
Jepsen’s manager says his client is not one of the authors of the song and is not receiving benefits from writing the song.
He says he believes Burnett will drop the lawsuit against Jepsen.
