I don’t get on the internet for ONE day and I miss so much! SS501 MV release, album controveries, Big Bang photoshoots (YUM!) and most importantly… SNSD’s comeback song (though… weren’t they always here?).
Anyway, the ex-band geek that I am, I couldn’t HELP but notice the similarities between Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music” and SNSD’s just released single, “Genie.”
Now I’m a fan of both songs, but one cannot deny the resemblance in them. They have the same rhythmic patterns, instruments as well as the clapping sound effects. I mean, obviously, Rihanna’s version came out before theirs, so I’m forced to say its copying. I made a video where I combined the music together and blended them so you can see the similarities easier.
Ah well, it’s not going to make me like the song any less, so I better get used to it, considering it’s going ot be everywhere, as well zillions of covers, renditions as well as performances in the very near future.
My only quarell with SNSD is that now, this mean DBSK comeback (and theirs actually WILL BE a comeback) will be that much farther away TT__TT
