Korean artist Tae Tae called out Lil Uzi Vert on Instagram recently, saying that the cover art for his single “That Way” is plagiarized from her work
Heartshake from six years ago.
She also shared a convo with the artist of Lil Uzi Vert’s cover, where the artist admits to copying her work.
That story came with receipts of Lil Uzi Vert himself requesting the work.
That doesn’t absolve the artist but it does show he was telling the truth about what happened.
Lil Uzi Vert himself then directly addressed it with Tae Tae, offering money at least.
Hopefully Lil Uzi Vert makes this right in some fashion. Not that it would make taking the work of somebody else without permission any better, but recognition and a payday should help.
Of course, that doesn’t even cover the fact that even the body position in the artwork was also allegedly traced from something else.
