Girl group T-ara‘s latest single “Sugar Free” has been accused of plagiarism.
“Sugar Free” is an electronic dance music (EDM) house track. Some house music fans, however, have found similarities between “Sugar Free” and Dvbbs‘ “Tsunami,” and also with the intro to DJ Felix da Housecat‘s track “Give Me Body.” One house fan pointed out that “House music does sound similar in multiple instances, but ‘Sugar Free’ has too many similarities.”
Some are also accusing the album art for “Sugar Free” to be plagiarizing the album artwork of Justice, a famous electronic music duo.
On these issues, T-ara’s agency Core Contents Media commented that they have “not heard of these issues.”
“Sugar Free” is composed by Shinsadong Tiger and Bumee & Nangee.
