Verbal Jint's track "My Type" was released for the popular rap survival show "Unpretty Rapstar", and it has been getting ranked high on the charts since having been released. Verbal Jint received a lot of love from fans of the show and music listeners alike. Fingers have been recently pointed however, accusing the song of plagiarizing Omarion's "Post To Be".
After a short silence, Verbal Jint's agency Brand New Music has released a statement in order to address the concerns. The statement reads:
"Hello, this is Brand New Music. We are here to deliver our official position regarding the plagiarism controversy brought up by some regarding the Verbal Jint-produced track 'My Type' on 'Unpretty Rapstar'.
First of all, we think it's a shame that such controversy has risen about Verbal Jint's work when he himself had postponed his own album that he had been working to help out with this project.
The song 'My Type' and Omarion's 'Post To Be' are both of the 'Ratchet' music genre, which has been receiving a lot of love in the American music market. If you listen to and compare them overall, you'll hear that the melody and the composition, the progression of the chords, and the arrangement of the instrumentals are completely different, and that they're two separate songs.
We want to thank everyone who show interest and support towards Verbal Jint's activities. Thank you."
