Recently, Shawols have been showing their extreme distaste towards Jamaican-American singer Sean Kingston. It was discovered that the singer released a song with Michael Mind titled, “Ready Or Not”. The song is titled the exact same as SHINee’s track, “Ready Or Not”, which was released with their 2nd album, “LUCIFER”.

The credits to Sean Kingston’s songs state that the song is written by Sean Kingston with the production by the German House Music Duo, Michael Mind Project. However, the song by SHINee has lyrics written by Misfit, was composed and arranged by Mikko Tamminen, Risto Asikainen and Will Simms.

When listening to Sean Kingstons’ song, it is obvious that the background melody is extremely close to SHINee’s. Fans have been commenting on the track saying, “There seems to be a slight change in melody and beats.. but it is still SHINee’s song” and “The song has been sean-a-tized!”. However, angrier fans are calling for SM Entertainment to step in and make an announcement whether or not Sean Kingston was given permission to use this song, and if so, why no credits were given.

However, the track “Ready Or Not” by SHINee is also a remake of the song, “Girls”, so there is a possibility they received permission from the original. The artist for the track, “Girls”, is unknown, so that leaves this possibility as highly unlikely.

Baru-baru ini Shawols telah menunjukkan ketidaksukaan ekstrem mereka terhadap penyanyi Jamaika-Amerika, Sean Kingston. Diketahui jika penyanyi ini merilis sebuah lagu bersama Michael Mind yang berjudul, “Ready Or Not”. Lagu ini memiliki judul yang sama persis seperti lagu SHINee, “Ready Or Not”, yang dirilis dalam album ke-2 mereka, “Lucifer”.

Kredit menyatakan jika lagu Sean Kingston ditulis oleh Sean Kingston dengan produksi German House Music Duo, Michael Mind Project. Namun, lirik lagu SHINee telah ditulis oleh misfit, disusun dan diatur oleh Mikko Tamminen, Risto Asikainen dan Will Simms.

Ketika mendengarkan lagu Sean Kingstons, jelas bahwa latar belakang melodi sangat dekat dengan SHINee. Fans telah memberika komentar di track dengan berkata, “Sepertinya ada sedikit perubahan dalam melodi dan ketukan.. tetapi masih lagu SHINee” dan “Lagu ini telah sean-a-tized!”. Namun, fans marah serta menyerukan agar SM Entertainment masuk dan membuat pengumuman ataupun tidak jika Sean Kingston diberikan izin untuk menggunakan lagu ini, dan jika demikian, mengapa tidak ada kredit yang diberikan.

Namun, lagu “Ready or Not” yang dibawakan SHINee juga merupakan hasil remake dari lagu, “Girls”, sehingga ada kemungkinan mereka mendapat izin dari aslinya. Artis untuk lagu, “Girls”, tidak diketahui, sehingga kemungkinan ini sangat tidak mungkin.
