Ellie Goulding “Close To Me” sounds like Post Malone “Psycho”

Has anyone else noticed this?¬† I’m not sure who to blame here. Diplo because he’s the producer? Swae Lee because one of his verses sounds just like “Pyscho” or Ellie Goulding because Lee’s verse is built off a variation of the chorus hook. Have a listen:

Billie Eilish vs. The Doors

Billie Eilish definitely has her own unique sound. But I couldn’t help hearing The Doors influence in “Bury a Friend”. Have a quick listen:

TeeFlii vs. Robin S.

Hip-hop artist TeeFLii and his collaborators on the 2014 single “24 Hours” have been hit with a copyright lawsuit alleging they ripped off Robin S.’s 1993 track “Back It Up,” according to a lawsuit filed in federal district court in New York last week.

The suit was brought by “Back It Up” composers Allen George and Sten Hallstr√∂m (a.k.a. Stonebridge), as well as the estate of late co-composer Frederick McFarlane and music publisher EMI Blackwood. The plaintiffs accuse TeeFLii — along with 2 Chainz, DJ Mustard and DJ Ketchup — of “willful” infringement of the “dominant theme” from the song, albeit “with minor modifications and a tempo change.” Sony Music, which wholly owns Epic Records, the label that released the song, was also named as a defendant in the suit. – Billboard
