Venezuelan influencer claims Shakira plagiarized her song
Venezuelan influencer and singer Briella has accused Columbian singer Shakira and Bizarrap of plagiarizing her song.
The singer claims that Shakira’s new song ‘BZRP Music Sessions #53' shares similarities with her single ‘Solo tú’, which was released in July 2022.
Briella shared a video on her social handles, calling out the similarities between the two videos.
For instance, she refers to a part where Shakira sings "just like you" while she herself sings "only you".
Briella also compared another part of her hits where the melodies were strikingly similar.
She said that wasn’t doing this to “create problems.” “I am a lifelong fan of Shakira, I am a fan of Biza’s work and I’m really in shock, I do not know what to do,” she said.
Netizens supported the influencer’s accusations by supporting her with their comments.
Plagiarism is a frequently discussed topic in the music industry. PitchMark has covered a story about Taylor Swift being accused of stealing the lyrics of her 2014 hit song “Shake It Off”. The lawsuit was later dropped after she reached an agreement with the two songwriters.
