Jason Derulo facing lawsuit over “Savage Love”


Jason Derulo has entered a legal battle with a music producer who claims that he was never credited for his contributions to a chart-topping track by the singer.

According to court documents, Matthew Spatola (better known as Matty Spats) has slapped Derulo and Sony Music with a federal lawsuit because he was not listed as a co-author on the 2020 hit, “Savage Love,” which he allegedly worked on with the Florida native.

According to the complaint, Derulo “unilaterally released ‘Savage Love,’ without providing any credit whatsoever to Spatola for the work they jointly created together.

This lawsuit is filed to right that wrong, and to ensure that Spatola is properly credited as a co-writer of ‘Savage Love’ and compensated for his contributions.”
