As reported byBillboard, Marino proved that he wrote the guitar hook, tempo, and chord progression for a song called “Club Girl.” The track was ultimately turned into Usher's "Bad Girl," off Confessions. The album is one of the best selling R&B projects of all time, and Marino wasn't about to lose his creation.
I remember hearing about this years ago but I never thought anything came of it. I am sure this wasn't down to Usher or his fault but the fault of the label.
Music piracy happens all the time and if you aren't careful, lyrics and music can be taken from right under your nose. Good on him for getting his payment.
I know if I make a track and someone stole it, made millions and millions from it, I would be seeking justice too.
