Lizzo Hit With a Second Plagiarism Accusation Over “Truth Hurts”
Written by Triz on October 16, 2019
Two of Lizzo’s former collaborators have posted a statement claiming Lizzo took elements from a song they created together in 2017 to create her Billboard-topping smash hit.
Producer Justin Raisen and his brother Jeremy shared their claim on Instagram. He alleges that on April 11, 2017, he and his brother co-wrote a song called “Healthy” with Lizzo, Jesse St. John, and Yves Rothman. Justin shared that some of the “melody, lyrics, and chords” of “Truth Hurts” are taken from “Healthy,” including the viral opening bar “I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that bitch.”
Here is the Instagram post with the two songs side-by-side for comparison:
