Singer/rapper Heize has addressed speculations that she plagiarized the song of her newly dropped MV, "Star."  The song came out on December 5 in South Korea, immediately taking over the music charts with her new image and sound.  However, a portion of people noted that the song sounded similar to JIDA's "Autumn Breeze" dropped earlier in October.

Heize stepped up to address this on her Instagram on December 5 with, "I worked on the song 'Star' back in August and showed myself working on it on 'I Live Alone.'  After that episode aired, a lot of people were curious and wanted to hear the song, so I ended up releasing it like this.  There are people bringing up the problem of similarities between my song and some song that came out in October, but that came out two months after my song was already heard through a broadcast, and because this is something I released officially as a departure from my sincerity, I won't say much on it. 


"However, I could not stand still watching my precious fans, who listen to my music, feel hurt from the testaments and rumors, so I am leaving this post.  I'm sorry to concern you."


You can listen to her song above and the other song below to see for yourself if they sound too similar.

    I'm sorry but this is what music is. Similarity is not a copy. You need to reach a certain percentage of identical to be called plagiarism. She already showed off the song in August so perhaps you can say it's the other way around her song was copied. Oh please knetizen get a life.

    Having similarities doesn't always mean plagiarism.. How old Music is? how many song have been release since? there's bound to be musicians having the same ideas, but that does mean they plagiarized each other...

    Just because she was seen doing the song in August, and the other song was 'released' in October, doesn't mean she didn't copy the song at all... just sayin'

    I think she was trying to say, how can she copy it if her song already sounded that way since August? Like how can she copy something that didn't come out until October when she was already singing hr version earlier.

    Well there you have it she said her song was already heard before the other song came out 2months after, so pretty much end of story,

    That's gonna happen in the pop genre...especially when the same common 4 chords and chord progressions is constantly used over and over.

    Actually,  after listening to them both again, the vocal melodies do sound very similar, but not enough to claim plagiarism. I'd love for someone to make a mashup of the two.
