Obviously, I love BTS. The all-male South Korean group has been a favorite of mine for the past several years. But, every time I listen to some of their songs, I can't help but hear similarities to other songs from the American music industry.
I'm not doing this to cause any hate, but I do think it is interesting that I find many of these sound the same. So, here are side-by-sides of the songs I feel are very similar:
Not only are the saxophone riffs similar in this, you can also almost sing the lyrics to Mr. Saxobeat while listening to Idol without many problems. Of course, I think they are in different keys, so you have to change that, but it mostly works.
To me, I can't hear "Not Today" without hearing "Shots" by LMFAO and Lil Jon. Just listen to the main melody! Even the timing of the lyrics of what RM sings vs. the members of LMFAO are eerily similar.
The drops in this song sound very familiar to that of Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What."
J. Cole, a popular rapper around who is actually from the same state as I am, is actually a heavy influence in "Born Singer" by BTS.
Legendary rapper group RUN-DMC were clearly an inspiration for the beat in War of Hormone!
