UPDATE: Katy Perry vs. Kesha vs. Miley Cyrus vs. Justice

July 21st, 2010 by

This is an update to Katy Perry vs. Kesha

I think we need to create a new genre of music called “lazy-girl-rap-dance”.

Jonathan and Kelly pointed out this Justice track a few months back and now that this Miley Cyrus track was brought to my attention I give you the following:

Justice - "The Party" (2009)

With the beat:
Justice - "The Party" (2009)

Ke$ha - "Tik Tok" (2009)

Miley Cyrus - "Permanent December" (2010)

Ke$ha - "Tik Tok" (2009)

Katy Perry - "California Gurls" (2010)

    You can hear these songs in the same key and tempo playing at the same time here… It’s all lined up. I made this on my Protools rig in my recording studio. http://www.myspace.com/redboothrecording

    BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

    There’s already that article that compares Tik Tok to Kylie Minogue’s Love at First Sight.

    But you know that probably samples Stardust – Music Sounds Better With You. There’s also another song by shemusic called Circuit Lover which seems to sample Kylie Minogue and/or Stardust’s songs.

    Stardust – Music Sounds Better With You

    she – Circuit Lover

    Music Sounds Better With You predates Ke$ha, Katy Perry, and Kylie Minogue. However, even Stardust sampled off Chaka Khan’s “Fate.”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qDQKxVBC60

    Just a couple of bars in this song linked above turned out to be the genesis for multiple songs by multiple artists. That just shows how much talent Ke$ha, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus have to me.

    Ha. Thanks for the additions Mr Valenti. Great list of similar tracks. I also wasn’t aware of the Chaka Khan sample.

    SOMEONE SHOULD REALLY POST TRAVIS GARLAND’S “SEXY TOGETHER” AND JUSTIN BIEBER’S “NEVER SAY NEVER” ON HERE. I THINK THAT THE BIEBS STOLE HIS MELODY LISTEN TO THESE TWO. THEY ARE ALMOST IDENTICAL!!!!! :O

    Interesting! I just checked the wikipedia page for Travis Garland. Still might be worth posting even though it seems legit.

    Garland demoed a song titled “Sexy Together”, but passed on it; the song was eventually modified by its producers and was then sold to Justin Bieber under the title of “Never Say Never”.

    Btw, I’m pretty sure Justice – The Party came out way before 2009.

    I’m not sure how much older it is, but this video was uploaded in 2007:

    Thanks for the info. I don’t have the actual record. It looks like maybe it was recorded in 2007 and released as a single two years later.

    No, The Party was on their debut album from 2007. Look here:

    Ned, Thanks for the info. Yeah, I think the various spellings of the track threw me off a little.

    Also, as Rodd mentioned in another one of your posts:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irxZsKBTXCQ

    Do you hear it?

    I don’t think Justice is ripping off anyone, but so far I’m counting

    1. Ke$ha – Tik Tok

    2. Miley Cyrus – Permanent December

    3. Katy Perry – California Gurls

    4. she – Circuit Lover

    5. Stardust – Music Sounds Better with You

    6. Kylie Minogue – Love at First Sight

    7. Jessica Simpson – Public Affair

    Seven songs that may have never came into existence without Chaka Khan’s Fate. Of course, it is possible that one of these artists may have produced something similar sounding purely out of their own creativity, but from what I can tell there are probably more rip-offs to come in the years ahead.

    Speaking of Kylie, some of the instrumentals in Got to Be Certain sound like Wouldn’t it Be Good and Never Too Late sounds kind of like I’ll Be There by The Jackson 5 and possibly others in the line where Kylie sings “It’s never too late to say goodbye”.

    Sorry, the lyrics go “It’s never too late to change your mind”, but at least I knew the right lyrics to I’m a Believer by The Monkees.

    Wait, add Flo Rida’s Who Dat Girl to this thread. It’s a blatant sample of California Gurls.

    But wait, it gets worse! Ha ha. This song is resurfacing again in Chris Brown’s Yeah 3X. Tell me if I’m being crazy or if the backgrounds here sound familiar;

    I definitely thought Tik Tok was by Uffie (the featured artist on The Party) when I first heard it.

    Tim from Radio Clash Reply:

    Yeah I thought so too when I first heard Tik Tok – poor Uffie, she got ripped off good and proper by those people. She pioneered that rapping style earlier than 2007 – she popped up on other tracks before Justice one back to 2005/6, maybe earlier. Ke$ha ripped her style, totally.

    You can also add Oasis by Sarah De Bono (2014). If you don’t know who she is, she was on the first Series of The Voice Australia and reached the final 4.

    When she appeared on the morning show Today, she said she wrote it in Bali with a couple of guys from LA, by the names of Jeremy Therber and Christian Distifano (I hope I have the spelling right).
