One of Post MaloneThe greatest hits of “Circles” were co-written by a songwriter who gets no credit, and worse still … no money … according to the lawsuit he just filed. Tyler Weapons says he and Post got together to write a song in August 2018 – cheering for the Post manager. What they eventually created was a song that became the hit monster, “Circles” … which went to # 1 last year. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Tyler claims that he co-wrote the chords and bass line for the song … and had entries on other parts, such as the guitar melody. Obviously, his point is … he did more than enough to earn writing credit. Instead, Tyler says that “Circles” was released on August 30, 2019 … without his name. According to the suit, he had negotiated with the Post camp earlier this month – he claims they offered him 5% of the publishing royalties without credit. Tyler says he backed off for a bigger cut and a write credit, but they told him to kick. In the documents, he states that the Post manager had a written exchange with him on this subject, and that the manager even told him that Post had recognized Tyler’s contribution. That’s good, but as we think Tyler would say … speech recognition doesn’t pay the bills. So he is suing Post for co-author credit and a good chunk of past and future “Circles” royalties. He also sues the producer Frank Dukes, who has writing credit and, according to Tyler, was present for the 2018 jam session that spawned the track. We reached out to Post Camp… no words yet.
