AceShowbiz - Demi Lovato, Idina Menzel and Disney are facing a lawsuit. A Spanish singer named Jaime Ciero claims that "Frozen (2013)" super popular soundtrack "Let It Go" is a complete rip-off of his song "Voral", which he recorded in 2008. Ciero is now suing Disney and Idina, who recorded it for the movie, and Demi, who also recorded the song, TMZ reports.
The Spanish singer further claims that the similarities between "Let It Go" and his song, which he calls "a huge international success," include note combinations, structures, hooks, melodies, lyrics, themes, production and textures. Ciero wants the profits from the movie, the music and the marketing.
Demi, Idina and Disney have not responded to the lawsuit.
"Let It Go" was released on November 23, 2013. Since its release, the track has received many good reviews from film critics and music critics. Marc Snetiker from Entertainment Weekly described the song as "an incredible anthem of liberation, matched by the animators' spectacular visuals when she shirks her responsibilities and builds a mesmerizing crystalline palace."
The track also gained international recognition as it became one of the most globally recorded Disney songs, with numerous covers being recorded in 47 different languages, including Japanese and French.
Talking about the huge success of "Let It Go", Demi stated that the lyrics of the song were the reason behind its success. "I think the song is so appealing because the words are so uplifting," she explained. "It's a really inspiring song too when you listen to it. It makes you wanna be yourself and be proud of who you are."
"I feel uplifted and, at the same time, I remember what it's like to feel very insecure about who I am," she continued. "But after I've grown and I've gone through some life experiences. I've become proud of who I am and so I can also feel the uplifting part of the song as well."
