Ice Spice faces copyright accusation for track ‘In Ha Mood’ | Pro Hub of News

Ice Spice and her producer are currently facing allegations of music plagiarism. TMZ reports that D.Chamberz is suing the 24-year-old singer, claiming that her song “In Ha Mood” infringes on the copyright of his single “In That Mood,” released in January 2022.

According to court documents cited by TMZ, Chamberz alleges that Ice Spice, whose real name is Isis Naija Gaston, copied his music in terms of the beat, lyrics, hook, rhythmic structure, metrical placement, and story context. Chamberz asserts that he created and recorded his song “a full year prior” to the debut of Ice Spice’s single.

Additionally, Chamberz has implicated Ice’s producer, Riot, stating that “In That Mood” was played multiple times near locations close to their homes in New York City.

In his legal filing, D.Chamberz is seeking damages, other income, and at least half of the song’s publishing rights.

As of May 2023, Ice Spice’s song “In Ha Mood” has garnered over 168 million Spotify plays and approximately 46 million YouTube views, according to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

This controversy arises as Ice Spice was announced as one of the headliners for two weekends in April at the 2024 Coachella festival.
