Katy Perry kind of, maybe, sort of ripped off Sara Bareilles with her new single

Katy Perry’s new single, “Roar,” is sparking some raised eyebrows around the Internet for its insane similarity to a recent Sara Bareilles song, “Brave.” As Entertainment Weekly points out, Perry definitely knew about Bareilles’ song, as she tweeted about it three months ago, but the two tracks don’t share any co-writers, leading one to just surmise that the two songs’ eerily similar cadences and jangly piano could, ostensibly, just be a coincidence. Or, you know, totally not.

Bareilles is taking the slight surprisingly well, tweeting “All Love, everybody. All love,” and then commenting on how she’s about a week into a meditation ritual sparked by her love of Oprah and Deepak Chopra.

Some intrepid Internet user has already laid the two songs on top of each other for comparison. Listen below, and maybe check out the Emoji-happy lyric video for Perry’s new track as well.
