The SHINee Romeo roses handed out last week haven’t even wilted yet and the netizens (people like you and me) have already pointed out the Juliette’s flaws. Not only does it sound like “Love Like Oxygen” part 2, but it also bears an uncanny resemblance to High School Musical star Corbin Bleu’s “Deal With It.” Are we surprised? Not really, given that Juliette producer Remee composed all three songs.
Remee, what the deal yo? I love Denmark and the pastries of your country, but let’s get real here. If you’re going to sell music you composed, opt for selling it to another country. A far lesser known country where the pop music ain’t so bangin’. Where it won’t be obvious that you sold your song to both an HSM star and a Kpop boy band. Because trust me, people go ape shit for both.
Corbin Bleu, “Deal With It”:
Not only are their huge similarities between “Deal With It,” and “Juliette,” but the marketing images for the Romeo single look really similar to a certain photoshoot from Dazed and Confused’s March 2009 issue. SHINee, don’t think your fans don’t consist of super savvy US-based fashionistas. They’re on to you! Check it out:
Note: The song I posted earlier is “Juliette.” The name of the single however, is entitled “Romeo.” Confusing, much?
