Producers Of MOMOLAND’s “BBoom BBoom” Respond To Plagiarism Accusations
Shinsadong Tiger and Beomi Nangi, the producers of MOMOLAND’s latest hit “BBoom BBoom,” are facing accusations of plagiarizing the song “Mi Mi Mi” by Russian girl group Serebro.
On January 12, Serebro posted MOMOLAND’s “BBoom BBoom” music video alongside the caption, “The world is slowly plagiarizing music from Russia.”
In response to the plagiarism accusations, a representative from Shinsadong Tiger and Beomi Nangi’s side stated, “The intro portion of the song can sound familiar due to the similarities in genre and guitar riffs, but the melody and chord progression are completely different [from ‘Mi Mi Mi’].
“It seems that the misunderstanding arose from the fact that the bass line and 4-measure chord progression [used in the song] are common characteristics of the retro house and swing electronic genre,” they explained.
