Flourgon claims that Cyrus infringed on his copyright by using the "we run things" phrase as part of the "We Can't Stop" hook.
According to a Reuters report (via Billboard), Jamaican musician Michael May, whose stage name is Flourgon, filed a $300 million lawsuit against Cyrus on Tuesday (March 13), claiming those lyrics are too similar to words from one of his own songs, "We Run Things", from 1988.
The only tangible similarity between the songs is the line "We run things, things no run we", which shares a spot in both choruses, although Miley's is slightly different: "We run things".
Miley Cyrus has found herself at the centre of a weird infringement lawsuit linked to a track released four years before she was born. Producers Mike WiLL Made It and Rock City, Cyrus' manager Larry Rudolph as well as record labels RCA Records and Sony Music are also named in the lawsuit.

The suit goes on to claim that "We Can't Stop" came at a time when Cyrus was trying to reinvent herself as "edgy", and that her album Bangerz is filled with traces of urban and Caribbean sound.
Representatives for Cyrus, 25, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. In addition to topping several charts, the track has received multiple platinum certifications, including five in the U.S. May is now seeking a trial by jury, an injunction to halt sales and further performances of the song, damages and attorney's fees.
Hmmm. listen to the songs, and decide for yourself. In translation, Flourgon thinks Miley's pronouncement of not being able to stop is equivalent to saying that he runs things.
