Usher and Justin Bieber have a new suit in their hands and its all because a certain artist claims they ripped off their 2010 hit track, 'Somebody To Love' from him... and yes, a judge just ruled it for trial.

Devin Copeland better known as De Rico and songwriting partner Mareio Overton claim the famous pair ripped off their 2008 song by the same name.

According to TMZ, a judge had previously dismissed the same case from court in 2014 claiming both songs weren't similar.

But a federal appeals court just ruled, stating the Bieber/Usher hook have an "almost identical rhythm and strikingly similar melody." to Copeland and Overton's own song.

So the case now goes back for a full-blown trial where they're seeking $10 million in damages.

Listen to both songs and be the judge... at least before the trial.
