Black Eyed Peas Accused of Plagiarizing in Recent Single

There’s a wonderful line between taking inspiration and straight ripping off. R&S Records has accused Black Eyed Peas of crossing that line.

Black Eyed Peas launched a two-part single again in late August known as ‘Constant’. It’s catchy and transforms from gradual R&B to bounce about midway via. And it’s the dance half that’s now beneath scrutiny.

Around 2:41 of ‘Constant’ it begins to sound remarkably much like Lone’s hit track ‘Airglow Fires’ which was launched via R&S in 2013. Today, R&S tweeted about this similarity. “Sound acquainted?” they mentioned, then adopted up by calling the Black Eyed Peas “complete rip off retailers”, which is truthfully an awesome insult.

If you’re taking a pay attention, the similarity is plain. But are you able to blame them? ‘Airglow Fires’ was extremely profitable. So a lot in order that it earned itself a “How To” video on YouTube. Perhaps they had been simply following the tutorial given to them, and appreciated the best way it sounded.

There is presently no response from Black Eyed Peas concerning the accusation.

Take a pay attention under and listen to for your self the similarities.
