Group Big Bang GDragon has once again been entangled in the issues of plagiarism. He released a 30s preview to the title song ‘Heartbreaker’ to his first solo album to be released on 18th August on 11st August on me2day site.
The song was said to have plagiarised ‘Right Round’ by American hiphop singer Flo Rida released in February having sounded the same.
But what’s confusing now is that YG claims that the song is not purely produced by GDragon but is a collaboration work between GDragon and a Swiss producer.
Purely GDragon’s creation VS collaborate production work? Problem lies in YG’s contradicting answers
Initially YG’s refutation to the accusations to plagiarisms on 11th August was that “The song ‘Heartbreaker’ is not plagiarised work but purely GDragon’s works.” But on the 12th, YG’s explanations seems to have changed a little said, “GDragon’s solo album is like what has been so far, collaborate composition. Title song ‘Heartbreaker’ is a collaboration composition between GDragon and a Swiss producer.”
“For the production of GDragon’s solo album, there is a newly added producer to do lyrics and composing. When ‘Heartbreaker’ is revealed in full, accusations for plagiarisms will not stand.”
Many are curious as to why YG’s explanations to the issue changed in just 1 day. Media says that the reason why YG is doing so is to avoid more accusations of plagiarism that GDragon has been receiving so far.

To be honest I started to think that his song was plagiarized or might be not sure b/c first why they said that the song was only produced by GD but now they are saying something totally different that he collaborated with another producer so something is not right here .. What makes really upset is when I read some comments saying like oh who cares if the song was plagiarized its okay but in reality its not b/c it means this singer have stole someone else work and referred it to himself or herself which is not right and in the end of the day it call stealing and Im really hoping that his song was not plagiarized
