Remember Usher’s smash hit 2004 album, Confessions? From it spun one of our all-time favorite Usher singles, “Bad Girl,” which was a major bump! But, it appears that one of the song’s original creators wasn’t given his due – or his check. A Philadelphia court sided with Daniel Marino, who claimed he was never compensated for composing part of the music on the song. Marino was awarded over $44 million in damages, but don’t you worry about Usher’s coins. He wasn’t actually named in the suit at all.
