Lizzo Accused of Plagiarizing ‘Truth Hurts’

Lizzo Accused of Plagiarizing ‘Truth Hurts’.

Claims of plagiarism have been brought against Lizzo by producer Justin Raisen.

According to Raisen, “Truth Hurts” is similar to a 2017 track he wrote with Lizzo, called “Healthy.”.

His complaint is particularly centered around the opening line of “Truth Hurts,” as well as the song’s melody.

.

I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100 percent that b----, “Truth Hurts” / Lizzo.

We were never contacted about being credited for the use of the parts of “Healthy” (melody, lyrics, and chords) that appear in “Truth Hurts.", Justin Raisen, via Instagram.

Raisen claims to have been unsuccessfully trying to settle the dispute privately with Lizzo since 2017.

We’ve tried to sort this out quietly for the last two years, only asking for 5% each but were shutdown every time ... Coming forward publicly to family, friends, artists, and colleagues seems to be the only way at this point in relieving some of our emotional distress caused by this, Justin Raisen, via Instagram.

If settled, Raisen promises to share some of the proceeds with Mina Lioness, who has also accused Lizzo of plagiarizing the opening line.

If Ricky and Lizzo’s team decide to settle this dispute with us, we would like to share some of the proceeds with Mina for her influence on "Healthy." , Justin Raisen, via Instagram
