Marshmello is getting sued over his hit “Happier”.
Arty claims Marshmallow copied his remix of One Republic's "I Lived”. He says the melody in "Happier" is a direct copy of "I Lived”.
Arty claims out of the 20 notes, the order of the first 19 notes are identical. Arty also claims Marshmello was at one of his shows and saw him perform his "I Lived" remix from 2014.
The song peaked at No. 2 in the Billboard Hot 100 and remained in the charts for 35 weeks. Marshmello came out with "Happier" in 2018 and has since garnered a whopping 335 MILLION streams on YouTube.
Arty is suing for copyright infringement and other damages.
