American rapper T-Pain has been accused of lifting a tune from a Bollywood song. The rapper’s latest track, That’s Yo Money, which he released on many platforms, features a reoccurring flute melody that sounds very similar to the popular Hindi song Tum Hi Ho from the movie Aashiqui 2 released in 2013. The tune was unmissable, following which many accused T-Pain of copying the tune.

Soon after, Mithun Sharma, the composer of the song, said that they would look into the issue. “Sir, the melody that you have used in your new song is my original work for a previously released Hindi film..The Label is looking into this,” read his tweet. While the song has been removed from YouTube, it is still available on T-Pain’s original release tweet.
