South African musician Daniel Baron is in dispute with David Guetta, alleging that the international megastar plagiarized his original track from 2016.
When listening to Children of the Sun and Guetta’s Light Headed, the similarities in the melody line and chord structure is blatantly obvious.
Take a listen to the track side by side here:
“When I heard the song for the very first time it was the craziest feeling ever. It was a mixture of shock, disbelief, and honor.”- Daniel Baron
Baron sought assistance of top legal advisors in the music industry and even alerted Guetta quietly in December 2018 with a formal legal letter stating that he wants to be credited and compensated accordingly.
There has been no response from Guetta or his team as yet.
