UK singer AWA celebrates 'women supporting women', ends plagiarism rumors by showing support for BoA

USER CONTENT

Netizens have claimed BoA's newly released title track and album of the same name, "BETTER", plagiarizes U.K. singer AWA's song, "Like I Do".

It has since been pointed out in articles like Naver News, that the composers of "BETTER" sampled "Like I Do". 

The news quickly spread until the singer herself put all the rumors to rest. In a Twitter message to a fan, AWA revealed the collaboration was in the works for months.

AWA is also credited as a composer of the song, as revealed on Twitter by LovelyChunsa.

The love and support extended to Instagram, where AWA posted a video of her dancing, giving a shout out. BoA took notice and reposted the video with love. 

Have you checked out BoA's comeback MV for "Better"?

Sampling happens all the time. Not only in k-pop but also US artist do it too. It’s legitimate it’s not stealing. They either get permission from the artist (if they own their masters) or pay fees to the record label to use the sample. I’m glad they shut this rumor down. Queen BoA is back!
