Today, one dedicated follower of ARTY pointed out that the Russian producer’s tribute song to Avicii called ‘Tim‘ sounds almost identical to Chris Brown‘s ‘Beautiful People‘ featuring the legendary Benny Benassi.

In the music industry, it’s not a rare occurrence that two very different artists release similar sounding tracks. Some other occurrences are Taylor Swift‘s ‘Look What You Made Me Do‘ and Right Said Fred‘s ‘I’m Too Sexy‘, One Direction‘s ‘Best Song Ever‘ and The Who‘s ‘Baba O’Riley‘, and Kesha‘s ‘Tik Tok‘ and Katy Perry‘s ‘California Gurls‘. These examples just show the shockingly comparable melodies fans often overlook.

Listen to the comparison below:

This statement came based solely off of a personal opinion. However, many other Reddit users were quick to chime in to give their own perspectives on the similarities.

Many agreed with the Reddit user’s comparison. However, others believed that the melodies from ‘Tim’ were also borrowed from other chart-topping tracks like ‘Together We Are‘ and ‘Goodbye Friends‘.
