Those that know me know that I’m a big fan of Calvin Harris, but it seems that one of his favourite songs of mine I’m Not Alone has been plagiarised yet again!
For those of you that haven’t heard I’m Not Alone (don’t let me know you haven’t heard it because I won’t want to speak to you again) which was released in 2009 here it is in all it’s glory below.
The first instance was Chris Brown’s song Yeah 3x. The below video shows a comparison. Brown later added Harris’s name to the song writing credits.
The second instance is far more obvious, and this time it’s JLS Eyes Wide Shut which was released in February 2011. I’ve managed to get the video to start at the exact point where they have ripped off Calvin’s song, because I know nobody wants to listen to their shit.
It happened again in May 2011, this time it was Cobra Starship with their song You Make Me Feel Good.
The most recent instance is from a DJ called Jakwob, and his song Fade which was released earlier this month. Listen carefully and you’ll hear the melody from I’m Not Alone at a slower tempo.
Calvin tweeted the below.

I’d be pretty pissed off if I was Calvin! But he seems to be handling it all quite well in my opinion. Despite being a fan I still haven’t seen him live, need to sort that one out!
