The controversies do not stop for Shakira, and it is that despite the fact that her new release “BZRP Music Sessions #53”, together with the Argentine producer BZRP, has established itself as a phenomenon by adding more than 39 million views in less than 24 hours After the premiere of the video on YouTube, Internet users accuse the Colombian of having plagiarized part of the song “Sólo tú”, which the Venezuelan singer Briella released last June in 2022.
Through social networks it is already being analyzed if it really is plagiarism, because although Shakira’s central theme focuses on making references to the alleged infidelity of his former partner Piqué and his now girlfriend Clara, The fans point out that part of the chorus of the Colombian and Briella are suspiciously similar, since both melodies have a similar rhythm and lyrics where they are sung “Because only you (you), and it’s just you”, by Briella, and “It’s not for guys like you. For guys like you. I was too big for you, and that’s why you’re with someone just like you”, from Shakira.
It was the Venezuelan singer herself who on her social networks, @briellamusica, put the topic up for discussion, and although he stresses that he does not seek to generate a conflict with Shakira and her followers, he did express his surprise at finding similarities between the two songs. “I think Shakira was inspired by my song ‘Sólo tú’ to do her BZRP session, I want you to listen to it yourself,” said Briella, who shared fragments of both songs to demonstrate the similarity in tone and word play.
“It should be noted that I released my song six months ago and it went viral on TikTok. I don’t do this video with the intention of looking for trouble, I’m a lifelong fan of Shakira, I’m a fan of BZRP’s work, and I’m really in shock, I don’t know what to do”, said the Venezuelan, who since the release of her song “Sólo tú” has had one million 400 thousand views on YouTube.
In response to Briella’s comments, her fans have shown messages of encouragement, as they celebrate the way in which she asserts her creativity and exposes the similarities, while others encourage her to proceed legally, considering that there is plagiarism and that she should invoice with her song as Shakira is doing with her new premiere.
So far, Shakira has not commented on Briella’s statements, since on her social networks she has focused on highlighting the success of her collaboration with BZRP and how viral the song has gone in less than 24 hours, positioning itself in the main popularity charts in the music industry and its streaming platforms.
