  1. If half of you don’t know than y’all should shut up because in the beginning flame says “you know what it is” and soo did the other rapper. They DID have the same beat sooo stop talking bad about flame

  2. Don't yawl know!!! Moses sampled Gods work and Jesus sampled Moses? Ask the prophets. Solomon sat in his garden, rolled a spliff and wrote his raps, so did David "Rescue me Yahweh from evil men", "Who can sit in me tent". Paul bopped to the "Son of God". Long live love and creativity

  3. what i learned from this comment section is that people are stupid and don’t realize that it takes years to get cases to court. and, katy perry, a multimillionaire, can afford to pay this man his money. everyone relax.

  4. This is ridiculous the songs are not even close to being the same! That drumbeat has been used in 100's of songs! Not very christ like of this supposed "Christian"!! I hope she appeals this ridiculous finding!!

  5. imagine if you could copy right a word just think about that

    you thought about it yeah its fucking crazy just like this court case

  6. Im not sure how they won this. Like the note structure is very similar but its just a droning beat. Its like arguing that a drum player who is only keeping tempo some how infringes on copyright.

  7. My god she didn’t even know who flame was he just wants fucking money they don’t even sound that similar my gosh I’m so mad right now

  8. It’s sounds more like Adagio – Bach’s violin sonata in F minor. Hell it sound like a dozen other songs

  9. Does this mean Katy can be sued over and over and over by the many other artists that use the same progression of notes? And will every other artist that used the same beat sued as well? Or are we only suing Katy? How does this work now?

  10. So Katy Perry gets a lawsuit over a lil similar beat. But “Sally Walker” by Iggy and “Money” by Cardi B didn’t get one even though they actually have the same base. 🤦🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️

  11. I mean, it’s the jury and the judge that decides. It sounds too similar and I doubt she actually writes her beats. She’s fake af and just trying to make money any way she can. Flame just got smart and decided to fight her on it. Maybe if it was anyone else in that situation, they wouldn’t bring her to court. But he thought he had a case and won. Can’t be mad at him.

  12. Fuck, it different manh, some jealous people did this, i think he is so jealous, its not only that song , many song is similar, fucking jealous

  13. Enternal Hell Damnation Forever for all who don't walk in the light of the truth. Cancel of life for Earth Kind who all are fallin and won't wake up. Evil people believe in Earth that has been dead for 50000 year's. Fake Bitches enjoy your Damnation Forever.

  14. This is completely fake reality and news and everyone who believe in this world will go to hell forever with them all involved

  15. He needed money that’s why he used Katy 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 and this is JURY 🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻

  16. Some of the most icon singers have said theirs only a few chords that can be used. So the more the music the more it's going to sound the same

  17. They’re similar but they’re not the same. This is really stupid. Dark Horse is a slower tempo and a different sound. The notes aren’t even exactly the same. I thought Christians were supposed to be selfless and caring but this really makes me think that this guy is just really selfish and stupid.

  18. Not gonna lie, that flame guy can go suck a dick. So many songs with similar beats, and he's gonna go after Katy? Wow, must not have much of a social life, huh?

  19. I'm glad she lost she's demonic an dosent believe in JESUS 🙏 Flame is a believer in Christ Jesus she just what was needed without violence you don't steal at all God Jesus Christ said so not even music Flame got justice see if you believe in Jesus name he will help you when it's rightsously an Flame is not katy perry she admitted she's demonic

  20. This seems unfair. By using a jury, you had ordinary people who may not have understood music theory and were confused by the terminology and technicalities. I wish Katy Perry had a music professor to assist her on this one…

  21. The jury are idiots flame my friend giving the cristian population a baaaad name. And the jury giving everyone a bad name.

  22. I am pretty sure I heard Despacito's full instrumentals but pitched differently used in a song in my country 🤣

  23. Y’all not realizing she took a Christian song and made it satanic. That’s what makes it so much worse.

  24. Emphasize on the Christian rapper lol.. you took the shot and da lord giveth time too spend it on the lords magic powder and holy dancers

  25. Why send the chick to show us the front door? Old style news is weird. And why does she talk like that? Trisha takanawa? Lolllll we need to end this old model… People under 30 dont watch this bs.

  26. This is so stupid, she didn’t steal anything from that guy! He just wanted a few more minutes of fame cause his fame went up in flames.

  27. Easy money for the raper.. Unfortunately the raper didn't say that the rithem he used also has bean used before by otheres

  28. Such a shame on this "Christian" rapper. Don't you learn that much from the church you go to about trusting God with EVERYTHING? Even the things other people do against us? It's so obvious what he's after – money and fame. Shame! Shame! Shame! And WTH is wrong with the jury – bribed? Do they even listen to such music ugh
