An artist is claiming The Weeknd and Daft Punk stole the song Starboy.

TMZ reports singer, songwriter and poet Yasminah claims Starboy sounds a lot like her song Hooyo. Her song was released in 2009 and Starboy was put out in 2016. Blog posts have been written about the similarities between the songs.

Yasminah says two of her producers settled lawsuits over the song already but she never got a cut of the profits. She’s looking to score $5 million.
