Remember that whole debacle with Kelly Clarkson‘s “Already Gone” and Beyonce‘s “Halo” sounding the same, courtesy of producer Ryan Tedder?
Behold–it’s the B-side to Alexandra Burke‘s “Broken Heels,” “Fear of Flying.”
Sound familiar, Utada fans? That’s because the song, which was also produced by Stargate, uses the same sample as “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence – FYI.”
Same sample, same producer. Granted, one’s just a B-side, and the other remains an album track only, but still…what gives?
PS: Just to clarify, Utada’s track is miles better. Just saying.
