But why tho? His entire persona is fake. Can we officially stop calling him a songwriter?

Where is the melodic similairty? Unless I'm missing something I don't hear it.

Chord similarity =/= credit

wow the bitterness. Its taken over your damn senses. His success and talent has spoken for itself thanks. Dont cling to some tiny hook in a song to try back up your hate. He literally came from busking on the streets. Doesnt get more REAL than that.

Why would I be bitter about an artist I supported before he was famous?

why would I be bitter about an artist that I will see in concert this summer?

 You know nothing, next time you want to judge people off one post, remember to shut up.

theres no denying he has changed a lot and Divide is his worst album with his worst lyrics.

I dont know why people are bitter. Or care. Maybe you're on your man period. All I know is your post reeks of bitterness. And lacks sense. Shape of you lyrics are cute AF. And relatable. Hence the global smash.

She's confused because the chords are similar, but you can't copyright chords

The melodies is where she would have a case. But in this case they aren't similar

What does the key have to do with this? Even in the same key they aren't the same melodies

She's clearly implying that she's "sharing in the success," meaning she's getting royalties. Why would she get royalties if she wasn't sampled?

 

OT: I see why it's hard to pick up the sample - it sounds so good and effortless for TLC due to their talent. Ed can't really pull it off.

Literally try to sing them identically. You can't, because they're not the same.

Just to be clear you are talking about the melody in 

 

"Girl you know I want you love" vs 

"I don't want no scrubs" right?

 

They are different melodies
