In the lawsuit, Astley argues that the song Betty (get the money)which was launched in the summer of 2022, is based on the sound that was taken at the heart of his famous song, by violating the principle of the right to personality.


according to him, Betty (get the money)which rose to 30H It was named a Top 100 Song of 2022, “closely mimicking the distinctive sounds Astley used to achieve his 1987 hit single”.


In an effort to take advantage of the enormous popularity and benevolence of Mr. Astley, the accused […] They conspired to add a deliberate, almost indistinct imitation of Mr. Astley’s voice throughout the song,” the singer’s lawyers told the media.

“The audience couldn’t tell the difference. His impersonation was so successful that people really thought it was Mr. Astley singing.”
