The controversy didn’t stop there. Hours after the release of the track, English DJ and record producer, Duke Dumont claimed that several elements of this track were copied from Duke’s demo that were written about 11 months ago. The English DJ got to on Twitter to express his opinion.

Duke pointed out “the vocal hook”, ‘the vibe” and “the title” to be stolen. The only thing we think that is similar is the title. The claim about the “vibe” is quite a stretch. Every now and then we see tracks from 2 different producers sounding similar. It doesn’t mean that those tracks are plagiarized. There is a very high chance of overlapping of certain elements.

In this case, we don’t think that there is enough evidence to prove that the track is stolen. Listen to ZHU’s track below and let us know what you think about it.
