Trey Songz ‘Touchin, Lovin’ sounds eerily similar to deadmau5
It’s not the first time that deadmau5 has had his music ripped off but this time around it’s Trey Songz that’s biting the mau5’s style. On “Touchin, Lovin,” a collab with Nicki Minaj, Songz features a melody eerily similar to the one Joel employed on his remix of Calvin Harris’s “I’m Not Alone” – almost 5 years ago. It’s a stripped down and slowed version, but the progression and past history leads us to believe that this is just another case of no-talent hackery from a drivel-producing “artist.”
Needless to say, Joel is not too pleased.

You can hear the similarities most obviously at around 1:45 on Trey’s “track” and 4:45 of deadmau5’s remix.
