The truth about “HEARTBREAKER” Part II

G-Dragon

This was so juicy it deserved it’s own post. For the first post go here.

“A person from VIPZ called Warner Chappell and Sony to confirm this for us; Warner Chappell and Sony both have not come in contact with any journalist or writer to publish this. Warner Chappell (who has the copyright for Right Round) said they are still doing meetings inside their company and THEY HAVE NOT EVEN SENT THE SONGS TO THE STATES YET. Sony(who has the distribution rights for She’s Electric) aren’t even taking this situation in consideration(they don’t think it’s a problem at all).

THUS ALL THE ARTICLES ABOUT PLAGIARISM AND ABOUT HOW THEY SENT IT TO THE STATES AND CONFIRMED IT IS ALL A LIE.

**Adding to that Warner Chappell nor Sony have made an ‘official’ stand on anything.

All the articles saying they have Warner Chappell’s or Sony’s official stand or side of the story is just a plain lie.”

Now for the really juicy story behind it all:

The copyright owner to Flo Rida’s ‘Right Round’ has came out to confirmed that Big Bang GDragon’s solo debut song ‘HeartBreaker’ has committed plagiarism to the former.

Warner Korea, which is the publishing company to ‘Right Round’ in Korea, came out to say on 18th August, “The song ‘Heartbreaker’ which was revealed in full today has been confirmed to have plagiarised ‘Right Round’ by the composer. And the composer of ‘Right Round’ in America is in the dilemma of what to do and how to deal this case.”

It has been known that from the American side, they have already did an investigation of the whole song of ‘Heartbreaker’.

Warner Korea said, “The headquarters of Warner in Korea has already proposed the problem the American side with the judgement of the composer on the issue confirmed. But it is in the composer’s decision whether to give up on fighting for copyrights or to demand for a legal lawsuit.”

Here’s an article which came in after the above article (just to give more insights to the situation)

The company in Korea which holds 50% to the copyrights to ‘Right Round’ with Warner said in an interview on 18th August, “If we look at the song as a whole, we do not think that ‘Heartbreaker’ plagiarised that of ‘Right Round’.”

The person in charge said, “We do not know if there is a part to the rap which sounds similar, and the climax and highlight to the song is different also. Also the melody to the both songs are different.”

“With this reason, we cannot say that the song plagiarised that of ‘Heartbreaker’. There is so many cases of artistes getting inspiration from one another lately, If we are going to rule the song plagiarism just because it has some parts which feels the same, then many artistes and producers will fall into serious censorship.”

The person continued, “Whether the song has committed plagiarism the final decision lies in the original composer. Before they confirm that, we cannot rule the song as plagiarism.”

It has been known that there are about 10 people who are in charge of the original composing and lyrics to ‘Right Round’. This will include the person who came out with idea of the rap, the person who wrote the rap, the different people who made the special melodies. (YGWorld; kbites)

Oh YG what a web to weave and I love you guys.

Everything that YG has said is “false”, can we still call it damage control at this point? Well yes we can. I said it in the previous post, he recycled beats, and even though the rap part in the beginning is exactly like Flo rida’s, I don’t think he plagiarized anything.
