In the song you can hear a piece of Astleys Never Gonna Give You Up, with which the 56-year-old Briton has become world famous. According to the singer, permission was granted to use that sample, but no one was allowed to imitate his voice.
Astley demands according to TMZ millions from Matthew Hauri, as Yung Gravy is actually called. The person who faked his voice, Nick Seeley, is also being charged.
Never Gonna Give You Up is one of the biggest hits of the eighties. In 2007, the song grew into the internet trend ‘Rickrolls’. When you want to “Rickroll” someone, send them the music video for Astley’s hit song under a different title.
Astley’s hit received a lot of attention again last year after the song was used in an episode of the Apple TV + series Ted Lasso.
