John Mayer vs. Matt Kearney vs. Coldplay

John Mayer - "New Light"

My friend Nicole just sent this one to me. I’ve never heard Matt Kearney before but I certainly heard John Mayer’s “New Light” (2018). There are definitely some similarities here. While listening to Kearney’s “Can’t Look Back” I also started to hear some of Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida”. Have a listen below!

Did Tekashi 6ix9ine Rip This Beat for GOOBA?

Tekashi69 GOOBA

According to TMZ Tekashi 6ix9ie is being sued by beat making company BeatDemons.  Although the TMZ article doesn’t offer up many specifics it seems that BeatDemons is alleging Tekashi ripped one of their tracks for his new song “GOOBA”. Although the business model of BeatDemons is to license their backing tracks for music I guess Tekashi didn’t license this one? Or ripped it off? Or took the general vibe and made his own version? Or is it entirely coincidental? I don’t know. I guess it’s up to the courts to decide. Or you can make your own judgement and leave it in the comments. That is what the internet is for, right? Lucky for Tekashi you can’t go to prison over copyright infringement…or can you?

Beat Demons – “Regular” (2018)

So I guess if you wanted to make your own track that sounds like this you can pay $40 and get it here. And you won’t get sued because you’re doing it correctly.

This seems like a similar situation when in both Justin Bieber and Asher Monroe apparently both used the same stock track for their music:

Justin Bieber used a royalty-free sample on his new album (and so did Asher Monroe)

 

Have a nice day!

Did Justin Bieber “Anyone” Rip from Toto?

Thanks to Ilan for sending this my way.

The chorus similarity of Justin Bieber’s 2021 track “Anyone” is undeniably similar to Toto’s “Goin’ Home” (1989).

Rick Beato on YouTube does an excellent job breaking it all down here:
