Namie Amuro Accused Of Plagiarizing G-Dragon

Top Japanese celebrity Amuro Namie (age 34) is being accused to plagiarizing a song by Big Bang's leader G-Dragon (age 23).

According to Japanese media sources on November 9th, "There are suspicions of Amuro Namie's new song "Sit! Stay! Wait! Down!", set for a December 7th release, having been plagiarized off of G-Dragon's "Heartbreaker" song. Two years ago, G-Dragon's "Heartbreaker" was also accused of plagiarizing a song by US hip hop artist Florida."

This isn't the first time Namie faces such charges. She had a similar case pop up over her song "Black Diamond", when it was linked with being familiar to Janet Jackson's "Feedback".

Critical netizens have been taking to the net: "Another one copied?", "The melodies are almost identical", "We're both Japanese, but I can't deny and protect her", "Why copy k-pop out of all things?". On the other end, some are supporting the singer: "Totally different", "A bit of a stretch to say it's plagiarized".

Namie's reps have yet to release an official statement.

G dragon? is it the guy who has been accused to plagiarizing Mariah Carey's and Oasis? lol

the similarity is in the little bit of the instrumental, just for 2 lines and then it goes into a different direction

and if GIANT SWING (who produced and wrote that song) copied G-Dragon, that would just mean that they copied Flo Rida's song, not G-Dragon's

and Black Diamond sounds NOTHING like Feedback, and i got an ear for shit like that

LOL seriously. Black Diamond and Feedback? These people must have something wrong with their hearing.

LOL the similar rhythm in the verse is not enough to claim plagiarism, sorry haters. The melody is not the same. LMAO

Just netizens going wild over every little thing. I doubt there's going to be an official complain.
llamatsuri 9th-Nov-2011 10:47 am (UTC)
I don't hear the similarities personally lol
I also find it funny Namie's songwriters are apparently copying GD instead of Flo Rida...It's like the J-pop vs K-pop battle is being brought up for no reason haha
benihime99 9th-Nov-2011 10:53 am (UTC)
Well according to the article KBS only talk about this controversy after the japanese media did... If that's true (which I'm not sure) is not really a J-pop/K-pop fight.
Moreover by saying that she copied GD who himself was accused of copying Florida, I think they're trying to say that it's really "unsafe" to copy someone who was accused of copying someone else.
