Rihanna allegedly played the song “Good Habits (and Bad)” by King Khan and Saba Lou, without their permission, in an Instagram post while promoting her Fenty brand. King Khan and Saba Lou filed a lawsuit against Rihanna alleging copyright infringement and stating that Rihanna’s ad was viewed 3.4 million times.
King Khan and Saba Lou want Rihanna to stop using their song and to pay them for using it in her ad! **Hey Siri, play "B... Better Have My Money by Rihanna**
