After almost a year, Liam Payne returned with his new single “Stack It Up.” As much as fans were thrilled for his comeback, they’re mighty disappointed in the star. The reason? Apparently, Payne has been accused of copying “Stack It Up” from Selena Gomez’s “Same Old Love.”

“Stack It Up,” which lyrics were cowritten by Ed Sheeran and which was produced by well-known hitmaker Steve Mac, released over a week ago. The newly released number opened to a great response until it was called out for being a complete “rip-off” of Gomez’s chartbuster.

There was an outrage on Twitter when a few fans of Gomez pointed out the stark similarities between “Stack It Up” and the 2015 hit “Same Old Love.” “Honestly the new Liam Payne song just sounds like a rip off of Selena Gomez song,” said one Twitter user.

“So liam basically stole selena’s beat,” exclaimed another. “[D]id liam just rip off same old love by selena gomez,” asked one user on the micro-blogging site. 

“Liam Payne’s new song just stole Selena Gomez’s beat from Same Old Love,” another user tweeted. “Liam Payne releasing an Ed Sheeran song ripping off a Selena Gomez song written by Charli. the creative bankruptcy. the decay,” yet another user said.

This isn’t the first time that a popular Hollywood music artist has been accused of plagiarizing music. In the recent past, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Jonas Brothers and Katy Perry too have been called out for the same.

Meanwhile, Payne has been in the news for the last few days for quite a few reasons. The girls couldn’t have enough of him as he posed naked for Mert Alas.

And after all these years, he finally spoke up about how he and his former bandmate, Louis Tomlinson, hated each other during their initial years. He was in the spotlight for all the right reasons until the song that received a thunderous response got him all the criticisms on social media.
