Is Rihanna a song thief?
As if Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams losing more than 7 million dollars in a lawsuit wasn’t enough excitement, it looks like Rihanna may soon be doing some explanations, in some quarters, regarding her new hit song, Bitch Better Have My Money (BBHMM).
Just Brittany, a musical artist, is claiming she recorded the song first before Rihanna. Her own song, Betta Have My Money, was recorded in 2014. Both songs, apart from being similarly titled, were both club songs with similar beat.
Since the news broke people have started listening to both songs in order to see if Rihanna copied the song of a less-known artiste; whether Rihanna’s BBHMM is a knockoff of Just Britanny’s BHMM?
Listen to both songs (below) and judge for yourself.
