Brett Eldredge borrowed a line from the Gnarls Barkley pop hit, “Crazy,” for the first part of the second verse of his latest single, “Lose My Mind,” but you shouldn’t worry that Brett’s headed for a lawsuit over the issue.

In order to avoid a situation like the recent court case pitting Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams against Marvin Gaye‘s family over the monster hit “Blurred Lines,” Brett and his co-writers gave co-writing credit to Gnarls Barkley’s CeeLo Green and Danger Mouse, as well as to a pair of film composers who inspired Gnarls Barkley’s recording.

“Lose My Mind” is the lead single from Brett’s upcoming, as-yet untitled sophomore album.
