The reason? Banks is claiming RuPaul completely ripped off her song ‘The Big Big Beat’, from her 2016 mixtape Slay-Z, for his song ‘Call Me Mother’. Fans have made mashups and side-by-sides of the song to demonstrate similarities, and to be honest, almost everything between the two tracks are similar.
In a slew of tweets, Banks celebrated the album’s removal and claims RuPaul’s camp has only reached out now she’s filing a lawsuit.
American is still available on other streaming services like Apple Music, but Banks claims that she’s in talks to get the record stripped from their catalog as well.
