Rick Astley isn’t backing down – and in our opinion, he probably shouldn’t.
The ’80s icon filed suit against rapper Yung Gravy for impersonating his voice without credit in Gravy’s hit song “Betty (Get Money)” which climbed the charts last year.
At first blush, we thought Gravy would play ball given the nature of the copying of Astley’s voice, but apparently he did not. Legal precedent falls directly into Astley’s favor, and that’s not a rick roll. Hopefully for Yung Gravy’s sake, his team is willing to negotiate a settlement, or Rick will be rolling to the bank on this one.
