Spanish artists denounce the plagiarism of Loreen

Although «Tattoo» was the winning song at Eurovision 2023, the truth is that Spanish artists have pointed out that Loreen's theme contains plagiarism. As they have pointed out, it is the first chords of the song that are the product of plagiarism.

The first chords ensure that they sound the same as those of the Pont Aeri song “Flying Free”, a theme composed by the Catalans DJ Ruboy (Rubén Moreno) and DJ Skudero (Xavi Escudero); and which is, in fact, a very popular song in Spanish discos since its release in 1999.

Will they take legal action against the winner of Eurovision 2023?

What is appropriate on the part of an artist who has been a victim of plagiarism is that he make the respective complaint; however, in an interview granted by the affected Spanish artists on the radio program 'La mañana de Catalunya Ràdio', they are studying the case.

The Spanish artists are studying with their lawyers the possibility of filing a legal claim, which will be possible if they can demonstrate that, as they think, «Tattoo», the winning song at Eurovision 2023, is a copy of «Flying Free».. And in fact, there are already several fan videos on TikTok and YouTube that analyze and compare both topics.

Is it possible to succeed in a lawsuit against Loreen?

As the Spanish artists who have been directly affected have pointed out, the first thing to do is determine if, in effect, «Tattoo» is a plagiarism of the song produced in Spain in the 90s.

If the plagiarism were to be determined with certainty, the claim may succeed; however, there is something additional; And it is that, although the song has sounds very similar to «Flying Free», it also sounds a bit like melodies by Adel or ABBA, which would make it difficult to file a formal complaint against Loreen for her Eurovision 2023 song.

One of the most famous cases was that of the song «Nel blu dipinto di blu», also known as «Volare», performed by Domenico Modugno for Italy at the 1958 Eurovision Song Contest. plagiarism of a poem, and although the song was not disqualified, its success was marred by accusations of plagiarism. Another famous case was in 2013, when the song «L'amore è femmina» by the Italian representative Nina Zilli, was accused of plagiarism for being similar to the song «Que nadie sepa mi sufrir», popularized by the Argentine singer Ángela Molina. The song did not get disqualified, but the controversy generated some controversy.
