Usher has lashed out at R&B rival Jennifer Lopez for allegedly stealing a song he cast aside while recording the hugely successful album Confessions.

Usher has lashed out at R&B rival Jennifer Lopez for allegedly stealing a song he cast aside while recording the hugely successful album Confessions.

The Yeah! Star claims J.Lo's new single Get Right is a re-recorded version of Ride, a song Usher co-wrote last year which is only available on the internet.

The 26-year-old rages, "I hate it, but I'd better get some of the publishing rights or else. I didn't put it on my album because I couldn't get it right. But I didn't expect J.Lo to just take it."

Producer Rich Harrison co-wrote the track with Usher and he decided to use it during recording sessions for J.Lo's upcoming album Rebirth, lifting the horn section completely and re-using the same vocal pattern.
