Back in the late 1980s, there was a slogan that was taking over Jamaica. The slogan was, “We run things, things nuh run we”, which simply means, we run things, things don’t run we. It is a slogan that exempted leadership, self-control, self-reliance and almost everything positive. In essence, the slogan was encouraging people to control the situation they are in and do not let the situation control them.

The slogan was created by one of the top dancehall reggae artist at that time, Flourgon.

Flourgon was riding high with hits after hits and “We run things” was only one of the hits in his catalog.

Fast forward almost 30 years later and Flourgon’s slogan caught the ear of Miley Cyrus or maybe the ear of her songwriter, and they decided to use Flourgon’s slogan in her song “We can’t stop”.

According to legal documents obtained by 18 Karat Reggae, Flourgon whose real name is Michael May is suing Cyrus for stealing his lyrics and profiting from his intellectual property.
