Dua Lipa has come under fire after two separate copyright infringements claims were filed against her song “Levitating.” The popular song recently made history as the longest-charting Billboard Hot 100 hit ever among women artists, surpassing the 69-week run of LeAnn Rimes’ “How Do I Live,” back in 1997-1998. Despite peaking at number two last year and never reaching the top spot, the song was still awarded Billboard’s top song of 2021.
