Sting Allegedly Threatens Juice WRLD With Lawsuit Over "Lucid Dreams"

Although Sting appeared to be cool with Juice WRLD sampling his 1993 song “Shape Of My Heart” for the Nick Mira-produced hit single “Lucid Dreams,” things have apparently changed. In a series of since-deleted tweets, Mira blasted Sting and his team for allegedly threatening a new lawsuit.

“Fuck @OfficialSting and his WHOLE team,” he wrote on Saturday (November 17). “After taking 85% of Lucid Dreams (for interpolating Shape of My Heart, NOT EVEN sampling) he threatened to take us to court for trying to get any %. Sting ALSO flexed stealing our money and said it put his grandkids through college.”

He followed up with, “everybody put a FUCK @OfficalSting in the comments if you real.”

Last month, Sting told Billboard “Lucid Dreams” was a “beautiful interpretation that is faithful to the original song’s form” and joked the song’s royalties will “put my grandkids through college.”

The song, which was included on Juice WRLD’s debut album Goodbye & Good Riddance, reached the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 100 chart and No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Now, it’s looking more like a lucid nightmare.
