Aza, Ukrainian Artist, Alleges "Call Me Maybe" Ripoff

by at . Comments

As anyone with a computer knows, there have been an endless number of Call Me Maybe covers since this Carly Rae Jepsen track blew up a few months ago.

But a Ukrainian artist who goes by the name "Aza" is set to take legal action because she alleges the hit single itself is a ripoff of her "Hunky Santa."

Listen to it here and decide if Aza has any reason to claim that producers simply tweaked her song in order to create Jepsen's version:

According to TMZ, a lawsuit will be filed today in which Aza seeks unspecific damages. Among those included as its target will be Scooter Braun, the manager for both Jepsen and Justin Bieber.

"I'm shocked and surprised that these people wanted to sample my lyrics on their song," Aza tells TMZ. "They didn't ask me for permission, they just took it. That's why I filed this lawsuit. When I first heard it on the radio, I was driving and almost got into an accident. I couldn't believe what I was hearing."

A rep for Carly Rae, meanwhile, has released the following statement in response to this controversy:

"This is completely false and [Carly's] lawyers will deal with this. Everyone knows [Carly] is a songwriter. She is not spending a lot of time listening to Ukrainian radio."
