Earlier today, noise pop duo Sleigh Bells claimed that Demi Lovato sampled their songs "Infinity Guitars" and "Riot Rhythm" for her song "Stars."
For reference, here's "Infinity Guitars."
And here's "Stars," which was written by Demi, Carl Falk, Savan Kotecha, Alexander Erik Kronlund, and Rami Yacoub.
The beats in both songs sound preeeeeeeetty similar.
Demi has yet to respond.
Yeah, they straight up sampled without permission. That's stealing.No, the two songs sound nothing alike.
