“Total rip off merchants.”
The founder of R&S Records Renaat Vandepapeliere today (October 2) pointed out what he believes to be some striking similarities between the new Black Eyed Peas track ‘Constant Part 1 & 2’ and Lone’s 2014 track ‘Airglow Fires’.
“Black Eyed Peas ripps LONE’s ‘ Airglow Fire – @R&S Records ..hmm .. check .. do we agree :)“, Vandepapeliere said in a tweet. R&S’ official account called the US hip-hop act “total rip off merchants”.
