CeCe Peniston vs. Lizzo

Lizzo Juice

Aside from the recent “100% that bitch” accusation Lizzo has been called out by 90’s R&B singer CeCe Peniston over Lizzo’s “Ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee, ya-ya-ee” line in her 2019 hit “Juice”. Peniston posted a comparison on her Instagram account putting them side by side. I try not to pass too much judgement on this site but I gotta say this one is pretty weak.

Enjoy!

Did Ed Sheeran rip “Shape of You” chorus from Sami Switch?

While UK courts are evaluating whether Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” (2017) is a blatant lift of Sam Chokri’s (aka Sami Switch) song “Oh Why” (2015)  Sheeran’s royalties for his hit are suspended. This isn’t the first time Sheeran has appeared on this site. Check out the bottom of this post for more.

“Ed Sheeran has been blocked from receiving any royalties for his monster hit ‘Shape of You’, after he was accused of “appropriating” other people’s music.

The global star is facing fresh allegations which accuse him of partaking “consciously or subconsciously in the habit of appropriating the compositional skill and labour of other songwriters”.

While Sheeran has denied the claims, High Court documents cite musician Sam Chokri – who is battling Sheeran over claims that the singer ripped off the chorus for ‘Shape Of You’ from Chokri’s 2015 song ‘Oh Why’.

Chokri claims that he sent the track to Sheeran’s close inner circle in a bid to work with the star, but later heard the chorus on ‘Shape Of You’ – which became the biggest selling single of 2017 in the UK and generated an estimated £20 million in revenues.
