There are clearly some similarities that are undeniable. However, it is also not uncommon for two artists to have similar ideas. It is also very easy for one artist to hear a piece of music which leaves an imprint in his subconscious. Later he will write a song that has bits of that subconscious imprint. The artist may then not realise that his new song has been influenced by one he heard previously. You also have outright piracy which many artist do quite blatantly. Personally, I dont believe Busy is a pirate.

Every one is b*tching about who wrote what first, like maddadan and kavelle informed with reference to imeem, check the link and confirmed it was written a year before smokey stated he wrote his, check your resources before you start talking mess about busy, and smokey keep trying, the sky is the limited.

people just love band wagon every thing most people say the song is a flop cant even dj muchless do a song. it takes people with talent to be an artist.beenieman and most big artist including busy signal elephant bounti even kartel use singer blinger to write songs and nobody dont wat geos behind the sceens.i do believe they copied some of that song,but because busy already bus its easier to sell his song to the public.busy should do betta than that dem fi stop steal people songs

I'm so happy for Smokie this is the best thing he'll ever do in his life. I profoundly rate Smokie he did a great thing for the music trying to create such a big controversy in order to Promote Busy's song. Thank U smokie U have done a great thing by makin such an a*s of urself for the promotion of the Busy's MEGA HIT!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really hope this one takes off on the international scene.

I hope there r more people like u out there that will make similar sacrifices for future hits.
