173 million views on YouTube, ‘Seven’ currently faced the accused of borrowing the sequence from K-Pop composer Yang Joon-young’s song ‘Time of Mask’. He has provided several pieces of evidence to HYBE, requesting an investigation on the same. While, the label didn’t open up on this because the company’s CEO, Bang Si-hyuk is busy on his business trip in the United States. 

BigHit Music Says It’s NOT TRUE!

Now, the Big Hit Music label finally vanishes all the accusations saying “infringement against ‘SEVEN’ is not true”. The statement read, “We would like to inform you that the claim of copyright infringement regarding “Seven” is not true."

And the statement continues, “ 'Seven' is a song made through a collaboration with five overseas composers. It is a creation that is entirely unrelated to a song that was included in a Korean album released 24 years ago." Adding on, "We would like to emphasize that the one-sided claim is baseless which fails to satisfy any of the elements for a copyright infringement claim, such as substantive similarity, independent conception, etc.”

‘Seven’ is sung by BTS Jungkook along with American rapper Latto featuring the actress Han So-hee in the music video. It was written by Andrew Watt, Cirkut, Jon Bellion, Latto, and Theron Makiel Thomas and produced by Watt and Cirkut. Adding on, it is the fastest song by a male artist to reach 400 million streams after Harry Styles ‘As It Was’ in the second place. Debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States and the Global 200, becoming both Jungkook and Latto’s first number-one on those charts.
