She should pay him royalties etc, but instead of damages, negotiate a remaster of her on his music and go for the General/Latin Grammy and more money on the re release

i'd be pissed if my producer brought this nice melody to me to sing over, and then found out he stole it.

He stole the chord progression of Phantom of the Opera from Pink Floyd so he doesn't have a leg to stand on re: plagiarism

Damn...dont come to Brazil.

It would really behoove white/non-black music artists who are already taking up way too much space in soul/funk/rnb/jazz genres to just NOT do this or respond promptly when called out for it. Smh.

The original is a stunning song though, pop music really lacks emotion lol

it really is wonderful. the only funny thing about this is how shitty adele's song is compared to mulheres. greg kurstin's white ass wishes he could be as iconique
