Lady Gaga was recently accused of stealing the melody of the hit song “Shallow,” from her highly acclaimed movie “A Star Is Born,” from an unknown artist. Songwriter Steve Ronsen claimed that the track is very similar to the song he released in 2012.

Ronsen claimed that a three-note progression in Gaga’s song is based on his track “Almost,” and these three notes are G, A and B. The unknown songwriter, who has less than 300 streams on SoundCloud, is urging the “Poker Face” singer to pay him millions of dollars in settlement.

However, Gaga is not backing down. Through her lawyer, Orin Snyder, Lady Gaga said that the three-chord progression that the complainant is talking about is very common among other song melodies. One example is the 1978 hit song “Dust In The Wind.”

“Mr. Ronsen and his lawyer are trying to make easy money off the back of a successful artist,” Snyder told Page Six. “It is shameful and wrong. I applaud Lady Gaga for having the courage and integrity to stand up on behalf of successful artists who find themselves on the receiving end of such [claims]. Should Mr. Shirian proceed with this case, Lady Gaga will fight it vigorously and will prevail,” he added.

Ronsen’s lawyer, Mark D. Shirian, also released a statement on behalf of his client after Page Six contacted him. The statement revealed that Ronsen and his team provided Gaga and her legal team an official report from a musicologist and professor. The expert revealed that there were indeed some obvious similarities between “Almost” and “Shallow.”

“Lady Gaga’s team has yet to provide my office with an opposing musicologist report, which we have requested multiple times,” Shirian said. Gaga recorded “Shallow” alongside Bradley Cooper, who was also her love interest in the 2018 film “A Star Is Born.”

Mark Ronson, Gaga, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt wrote the lyrics of the song. They revealed that Gaga first played the melody of the song for them three years ago. During a previous interview, the award-winning singer also said that “Shallow” is a conversation between a man and a woman.
