Legendary American steel driver John Henry tried to outmaneuver the machine, but lost. Today, new technology has overtaken America’s top musicians and soared to the top of the charts, but not with railroads, dropping beats.
Multiple streaming platforms have dropped a new viral, AI-generated song featuring vocals reminiscent of the respective styles of Drake and The Weeknd.

It was easy.
For example, Rihanna’s voice was imitated in a variant version of Beyoncé’s hit “Cuff It.” Even if Rihanna proved unable to take legal action, Beyoncé and her label were certainly in a position to do so.

There is currently a lawsuit addressing the issue of AI systems that use copyrighted works as input.
The outcome of such lawsuits could set a precedent that could be applied to the release of songs like Ghostwriter977. In this song, potentially copyrighted content helped train an AI model to create a new product.
