Jaden Smith Accused Of Ripping Off Louis The Child's "Body Gold" Remix
News has come down the wire that Jaden Smith, son of the famed actor Will Smith, is being accused of using a Louis The Child beat without permission. Jaden's track "Moon In My Room" featuring his sister Willow Smith is backed by an undeniably similar beat to LTC's remix of Oh Wonder's "Body Gold." Jaden's track samples the original content of LTC's remix and avoids the "Body Gold" samples, which makes it much easier to identify. Although the remix wasn't an official release, LTC was given permission to remix the track by Oh Wonder's team.
Joey Papoutsis, Louis The Child's manager told EDM.com in a statement, ”we were never contacted by Jaden and Willow Smith's team about using the song for their album.”
The Pyrvmids & Daniel D'artiste claim to have produced "Moon In My Room" for Jaden Smith, although with one listen to each of the tracks, it is wildly apparent that there are entire clips taken from LTC's remix. Below you can find all three tracks to compare for yourself.
