Jessi and Dok2 teamed up recently to release
the Korean cover of Rihanna‘s “Bitch Better Have My Money“ “Raise Your Heels“.
I don’t get involved in arguing plagiarism issues because I don’t know enough about music production to actually identify what is actionable and what just sounds alike. However, pushing legality and all that aside, “Raise Your Heels” is a basically goddamn Korean version of Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money”.
By default, that makes it decent, but since “Raise Your Heels” sounds similar right down to the vocal inflection, the question becomes why would I listen to the Korean version when I can listen to the superior American version? I mean, that version doesn’t even have Dok2 in it.
