Did Taylor Swift RIP OFF Hilary Duff’s Music?!?


More Celebrity News ►►

So Lover is out and the verdict is in: People are loving it. I love it too! But I couldn’t help but notice that one song in particular sounded a liiiiitttle familiar

What’s up guys it’s Emile Ennis Jr. here with Clevver News. I know, music is weird and its not uncommon for two songs to sound similar, but in this case there’s something a bit stranger.

See, Paper Rings, the 8th song on the album, sounds a lot like Hilary Duff’s “Breathe In. Breathe Out” from 2015.

We can’t play the whole song – copyright reasons, you know – but here’s a little snippet.

Okay now listen to Breathe in Breathe Out


Okay, now I’m not ready to say that Taylor stole from Hilary here. I mean, a melody is easy to mistakenly replicate. It’s not like she copied the words of Breathe In. Breathe Out.

Oh, actually

*Stares at the camera*

Oookay. Two instances on TWO separate albums from the SAME Hilary Duff song….

Maybe Taylor doesn’t even know the song. I mean, it came out in 2015 while Taylor was deep in her 1989 world tour


She diiid post this on her tumblr in 2015

A fan asked her what her favorite song from Hilary’s new album is

And Taylor said “Breathe In breathe out. Obviously”


I got nothing here, guys. You know I love Taylor but it’s hard to admit that she didn’t take these from Hilary.

But maybe they have an agreement! Maybe Hilary and her songwriters have been on Taylor’s payroll all along. But they’re not in the credits so that seems unlikely.

I don’t know the logistics, just pointing out what I’m seeing here.

But what do you guys think? Is it all a coincidence? Or an admiration borrow? Or…. Drop a comment below with your thoughts. And don’t crucify the messanger here, please!

  1. Why media always make a new issue while everybody just quite and don’t care??? Hey, Clever News don’t start based on your opinion to make a new issue….You need to calm down in your business

  2. I’ve wrote songs before and then realized later that they sounded like a song I had listened to. So maybe that’s the case?🤷‍♀️

  3. You can’t just copy someone’s work and say it’s “inspiration” or “paying homage”. That’s not how copyright works. You can’t even do that if you give credit to the original artist. If you want to use someone’s work you need to change it enough to make it into a new thing. This just sounds like she used parts of a different song and put them into her own without changing it enough to make it her own. I don’t think anyone really cares though. Both songs sucks. No one should care enough to take legal action.

  4. I don’t think its a coincidence. Clearly she got inspired and likes her enough to kinda give her an homage in form of a song
