Chris Brown and Drake‘s mega-hit “No Guidance” is under legal fire from a pair of songwriters who claim that track ripped off one of their recordings, but they’ve cut Drake a break … dropping him from the case.

Songwriters Brandon Cooper and Timothy Valentine voluntarily dismissed Drake from their lawsuit, leaving Breezy and Sony Music Entertainment as the remaining defendants … according to Billboard.

‘Guidance’ is actually a Chris track — featuring Drake — from the 2019 album “Indigo.”

TMZ broke the story … Cooper and Valentine filed the original lawsuit in October 2021, claiming they had a meeting with a Cash Money A&R and insisting the hit song was lifted from another track called “I Love Your Dress.”

Calls to Drake’s legal team weren’t immediately returned. We’ll keep you posted.
