A spokesperson for Drake has responded to the lawsuit filed against the rapper over royalties for the song “Marvin’s Room.” As Rolling Stone reported yesterday, a woman who says she is Drake’s ex-girlfriend is claiming that she was wrongfully excluded from sharing co-writer royalties for the song.
“This claim is entirely without merit and our client has not engaged in any wrongful conduct,” the spokesperson told Rolling Stone. “Ericka Lee consented to the use of her voice in the song ‘Marvin’s Room’ prior to its release. Lee asked only for the credit she received as ‘Syren Lyric Muse,’ and she did not ask for any compensation. It was only after she retained a lawyer that there was a demand for payment. Drake tried for months to resolve the matter amicably, and he now looks forward to being vindicated in court.”
