Post Malone has settled a lawsuit with Tyler Armes, a member of a Canadian rock band, alleging that he co-wrote the 2019 hit song, Circles, but was not given credit or pay.
At the recording session in August 2018, the accuser, Tyler Armes, admitted he had “substantial impact” on the bassline and assisted with the piano chords and guitar melodies.
The final version of the Track, he continued, is “note for note rhythmically and melodically identical” to the one that was recorded with him, even though the words were not finished during that particular session.
