Rihanna Accused of Stealing 'Bitch Better Have My Money'

Rihanna’s latest single “Bitch Better Have My Money” maybe not be so original after all. Apparently, a Houston rapper by the name of Just Brittany has a song that sounds similar to the R&B singer’s tune.

BILLBOARD is reporting that fans of Just Brittany are pointing out the similarities of the Houston rapper’s 2014 track “Better Have My Money” and Rihanna’s song. While the hook maybe the same, compositionally, both tunes feature different melodies.

The Just Brittany Twitter fan page posted a tweet addressing the alleged jacking of the song and then deleted it. The message read: “ATTN: @itsjustbrittany “Betta Have My Money” been on iTunes jacked by @rihanna Wake Up.”

Both RiRi and Just Brittany have not commented on the song discrepancy. However, Brittany did post a 15-second clip on her Instagram account showing herself counting fake money while her song plays in the background.

Are we looking at another “Blurred Lines” case? Quite possibly if Brittany goes the legal route.

On a side note, Just Brittany was recently featured in XXL Magazine’s “Eye Candy” feature. According to the mag, the Houston native was first discovered by Birdman in 2009 and has released a slew of mixtapes and singles, including her latest “A Drug Called Love.”
