Tyler Armes has filled a lawsuit against singer Post Malone for writing credits on the song ‘Circles,’ the third single off his recently released ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding‘ album.
Armes claims that in August of 2018, he had linked up with Post Malone and producer Frank Dukes at the behest of Posty’s manager, the outcome which is the single for which he is suing for credit on.
“Honored to have worked on this incredible song “Circles” with @postmalone and @frankdukes . A year ago we ended up in an all night studio session in Toronto. We Jammed on different instruments for a few hours and built the beat. Post laid down the rough vocals a few hours after, we knew immediately it was a special song and a whole new vibe! Crazy energy in the room!
Congratulations to the whole team @drelondon @louisbellmusic @billywalsh @myjeanious for knocking it out of the park. “Hollywood’s Bleeding” available sept 6!.”
In the document Armes claims he “co-wrote the chords and the bass line for the song,” as well as contributed to the main guitar melody.
The lawsuit also reveals that negotiations where in play the same time month the album was released, Armes alleging he was pushing for a better deal than the offered 5 percent of publishing and no public writing credit.
The said single, ‘Circles,’ appeared on Posty’s 17 track ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ album, released September 6 with guest appearances from DaBaby, Future, Halsey, Meek Mill, Lil Baby, Ozzy Osbourne, Travis Scott, SZA, Swae Lee and Young Thug.
The album opened its Billboard top 200 chart with 489,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 12 in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music — the second-biggest week of 2019 for any album. Of that total unit sum, 200,000 were in album sales.
