Happens all of the time. Will I Am hasn't had a track some out that didn't sample/rip off something else. Same goes for Pitbull as well. However, look hard enough and you'll find something in any mainstream song, be it the same key/chords/progression, or even melody and vocal rhythms.
This is a good thing for those guys, despite it being a douchy thing, at least they will end up getting a settlement out of it. As the sample was not cleared, and the song is owned only by Ajuana Beats.
