A copyright infringement lawsuit filed against Jamie Foxx over his new party track has been dropped.

Days after the Oscar winner debuted his Party Ain't a Party collaboration with DJ Mustard and 2 Chainz online last week (begs15Sep14), Nontra Records executives launched legal action, claiming the song was substantially similar to a DJ Mustard tune recorded by singer/songwriter J Rand.

The plaintiffs insist they acquired the song rights when they took over the artist's contract and helped Rand release a mixed and mastered version to radio stations last November (13).

They demanded at least $150,000 (£94,000) in damages, but days later, Nontra executives decided to withdraw the legal claim.

No reason for the dismissal was given, but both Mustard and Foxx denied the allegations, with the singer/actor's representative stating, "This is Jamie Foxx's recording, no one else's."
