Remember the track Let It Go from Disney's animated musical Frozen that your tween cousins, nephews and random kids in the malls loved to blare on their speakers? Well, looks like the young Frozen fans may just be getting a taste of real life soon as their fave track gets embroiled in a plagiarism issue. Chilean artiste Jaime Ciero is suing Disney, Demi Lovato and Idina Menzel for allegedly lifting parts of his 2008 track Volar.
In a copy of Ciero’s lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, he alleges that Let It Go and Volar share similarities in terms of “note combinations, structures, hooks, melodies, lyrics, themes, production and textures.” However, Ciero's track was recorded in Spanish and according to him was “a huge international success reaching millions of listeners and landing on numerous charts of the most popular, top-performing songs.”
Ciero is seeking profits from both Frozen and its music. Wanna do some sleuthing? Well, both the tracks are listed below. So, get playing Sherlock with your ears:
