A netizen claims that EXO's 'Love Shot' plagiarized One Direction Louis Tomlinson's 'Back To You'

EXO's new song "Love Shot" is facing plagiarism accusations. 

The boy group's newest title song is being accused of plagiarizing "Back to You" by One Direction's Louis Tomlinson



A Twitter user has created a comparison video pointing out the problematic parts. The user claims that D.O.'s part @02:20 in "Love Shot" is similar to the melody of "Back To You" @01:29.  

 

Some netizens noted the similarities while others stated that is merely a sample and nothing more. 

Meanwhile, users on Twitter are asking for feedback on the issue from SM Entertainment with the hashtag #Loveshot_Plagiarism on Twitter.

Why are y'all so stupid..

The song is not the same

It was that 6 second part that is similar but EXO has a light sound in the background, very light piano while Louis has a very strong piano. The lyrics are not even the same. It's called sampleing.


Next time, LISTEN TO THE WHOLE SONG!!!

People really need to stop being so nit-picky with everything. It's so ridiculous. It would honestly be more concerning if it was a longer segment of the song rather than like a 10-20 second clip. Pull yourselves together. I don't mean to be rude, but sometimes people pull stuff out of thin air and make claims out of it for no reason.
