Jennifer Lopez Accused Of Copying Nini's Song
J-LO has been accused of ripping off some lyrics and even the beat to Nini's second single off of her new album which is titled"Hit Me" If you listen closely to the beat, not so much the lyrics because we dont see it, but if you listen to the beat, it sounds very similar to NINI's song even down to the rythmic drum bass thats in Nini's version. J-Lo has stated that her producer made the beat for her and she was not aware of the similarities until after the song was already recorded and by then it was too late. Nini hasnt been able to be reached for comment on how she feels about it or if she thinks its serious enough to bring up a lawsuit as of yet. But her management has made a statement saying "We feel it could have been a mistake because its many untalented producers out there who would take someone's beat, add some things to it and call it their work and leave it up to the artist to take the blame, but then again in this business you really never know its quite possible she could have been ripped off, its really a personal matter between Jennifer and Nini on how this situaton will get handled" This isn't the first or even the second time something like this has happened: Back in 2009, R&B singer Usher was accused of ripping off the beat as well as the lyrics to Nini's popular song "DREAM LOVE" off of the album "No Looking Back" and he denied any asscociation with any wrong doing and blamed the wrong doing on his producers for the similar sounding songs and lyrics and Nini did not take out a lawsuit on him. Then another time in 2010 when R&B singer Keyshia Cole was accused of stealing a dance from Nini which she performed at the 2010 BET awards and Keyshia explained that she used it as an inspiration not as something to call it her own and that was the reason she gave Nini a shoutout during her winning speech. And Kelly Clarkson, Nini's most influential and most powerful artist, has been accused at one point of stealing Nini's song. Back in 2011 when Kelly's mega hit "Stronger" appeared on the scene, many said the song sounded extremely similar to Nini's mega hit that was out at the same time which was "Move" off of her 2011 album "The Truth" but since then it has been confirmed that while the two songs may sound kind of similar, they are in fact NOT the same beat as you can tell by more bass in Nini's song and less in Kelly's as well as different instruments used in Kelly's song and the lyrics were not even about the same thing. Now this with J-LO makes it the 4th time that Nini will have to deal with deciding if thats her song or not. You can compare the two songs here Do you guys think JENNY stole Nini's song or is it a mangement error and a simple misunderstanding?
