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.
