Enrique Iglesias sued by songwriters over Bailando

Enrique Iglesias is at the center of a new lawsuit filed by two songwriters who have accused him of stealing their track.

Cristian Escuti and German Schulz claim Enrique's hit Bailando is a rip off of their song Quiero Bailar Contigo, which they recorded in 2009 and offered it to a Sony executive in 2012.


The duo heard nothing from the music bosses and assumed they had discarded the track - until they heard Iglesias' 2014 song.


The songwriters insist the chorus line, melody, lyrics and rhythm have been lifted from their tune, according to TMZ.com.
