Katy Perry is in hot water for one of her songs sounding like a carbon copy.
To say Katy Perry’s Witness era isn’t going according to plan is an understatement. The latest uphill battle for the pop star? Fans have found undeniable evidence to suggest one of the record’s tracks, “Bigger Than Me,” has an uncanny resemblance to a song named “Lampa i sofa” by Polish singer Ania Wyszkoni off her 2009 record Pan i pani.
A lot of the time I tend to shrug my shoulders at said comparisons, because there are only so many freaking notes our human ears can detect nah mean? But this one’s too close for comfort.
Listen below – the first half is the Ania Wyszkoni track in question, the second is Katy’s.
If you are still unsure of it all, a user on ATRL mashed both tracks on top of each other. It’s hard to refute this.
According to the song’s writing credits, Perry is partly responsible for penning the song, as is Corin Roddick and Megan James. They’re going to have some explaining to do. Unless it’s sheer coincidence. Yes, that must be it. I wonder if Wyszkoni would agree.
