Singer Ariana Grande has been sued by songwriter Alex Greggs for her 2014 track One Last Time.
Mr Greggs has claimed that the 23-year-old singer stole the hook and few lyrics of Skye Stevens's song Takes All Night, which he wrote, reported E! Online .
In the documents obtained, the Canadian-born record producer has alleged that One Last Time and Takes All Night bear similarities.
The lawsuit states, "Although the rhythm of the two compositions may differ to accommodate the prosody of the lyrics, there is substantial similarity on the most important rhythmic placement of the pitches on strong melodic and harmonic beats as well as the use of the lyric statement 'Take(s) (or taking) You Home' as the final lyric statement."
Ms Greggs is seeking $150,000 per infringement. David Guetta (who wrote One Last Time), Rami Yacoub, Carl Falk, Universal Music Group and Republic Records are also noted names in the lawsuit.
