Drake Scores Victory In Copyright Infringement Case

(Radio.com) A judge has ruled in favor of rap star Drake in a 2014 copyright infringement suit. The estate of jazz musician Jimmy Smith filed the suit when the rapper opened 'Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2" with a 35-second sample from the song, 'Jimmy Smith Rap."

U.S. District Court judge William H. Pauley III determined that the usage of the clip was covered under fair use, reports Pitchfork. The line for Smith's song goes, 'Jazz is the only real music that's gonna last. All that other bull—- is here today and gone tomorrow. But jazz was, is and always will be."

The Drake version cut down the words to include, 'Only real music's gonna last. All that other bull—- is here today and gone tomorrow." Judge Pauley explained that Smith's phrase 'is an unequivocal statement on the primacy of jazz over all other forms of popular music," while Drake's edit turns it into 'a statement that 'real music,' with no qualifiers, is 'the only thing that's gonna last.'"

The official ruling: "The full extent of the commentary is, in this Court's view, that many musicians make records in similar ways (e.g. with the help of A&R experts or the stimulating effects of champagne), but that only 'real" music--regardless of creative process or genre--will stand the test of time. Accordingly, this factor favors a finding of fair use." Read more and listen to both songs here.

"I don't mind the song, my wife was falling over herself, 'Have you heard Harry Styles' new song? It's like Prince', I was like, 'Without even hearing it, I can assure you it's not like Prince!'" Read more here.

(Radio.com) In the sharing economy, you never know who's going to give you a ride to the grocery store. If you needed a lift in Los Angeles recently, it might have come from Joe Jonas or one of his DNCE bandmates.

As shown in a new online video, the band partnered with ride-sharing app Lyft to surprise unsuspecting passengers with silly banter, Hawaiian shirts and pop star navel-gazing.

Joe tries to hold it together while his bandmates diss the Jonas Brothers, while an eagle-eyed passenger tells him he looks like Joe Jonas. When the rides were over (and the jig was up) all the riders got complimentary selfies with DNCE… but did they get where they needed to go on time? Watch the funny segment here.

Maren Morris Inspired Lady Antebellum's New Song

(Radio.com) Country trio Lady Antebellum is about to celebrate their 10th year as a band. This past year they took a hiatus to work on outside projects and to write for their latest album, Heart Break. "You Look Good," is the band's first single from the new project and it it's a track with an interesting connection to budding country star Maren Morris.

Songwriter/producer Michael James Ryan Busbee (better known as just busbee) co-wrote the tune with Ryan Hurd and Hillary Lindsey ('Blue Ain't Your Color," 'Dirty Laundry" ).

It was inspired by a '90s Night party at Nashville's Basement East, where Brothers Osborne, Lucie Silvas, Cassadee Pope and Hurd's singer-songwriter girlfriend, Morris, sang a set of 20-year-old pop covers.

"As one of my friends so eloquently put it, she said, 'I feel like I sit with Ryan and write love songs about Maren, and I feel like I sit with Maren and write love songs about Ryan.' So we're writing about Maren, of course, because that's his love interest," he continued. Read more here.

(Radio.com) Country music star Miranda Lambert released a stripped-down version and music video of her hit single, "Tin Man," earlier this week (June 1) off her 2016 "The Weight of These Wings" album.

In one of her career's most vulnerable performances, the video features the country singer playing guitar and singing on the bathroom floor with just a single camera angle.

"Hey there, Mr. Tin Man / You don't know how lucky you are / I've been on the road that you're on / It didn't get me very far / You ain't missing nothin' / 'Cause love is so d— hard / Take it from me darlin' / You don't want a heart" Watch the video here.

The Champs' 'Tequila' Featured In 'Baby Driver' Trailer

(Radio.com) A new trailer for Edgar Wright's new movie Baby Driver was released this week and it features a familiar tune. The Champs' "Tequila" is featured throughout the action-packed clip.

The film will feature music prominently. "There's a LOT of music in it," Wright told Nerdist. "Ansel [Elgort]'s character is playing music the entire time. So it's taking things that are in Scorsese or Tarantino or Soderbergh films-and in those films you have the jukebox kind of soundtrack-and the idea with this is that the lead character is actually playing those songs. So the songs are always sourced. They're either in his ears or playing in a diner or playing on a stereo, so they're always within the scenes."

The soundtrack features an eclectic mix of artists including Beck, Queen, The Beach Boys, Kid Koala and Barry White, just to name a few. Baby Driver arrives in theaters on June 28. Check out the trailer here.
