Adele Accused of Plagiarizing Kurdish Singer Ahmet Kaya

Adele may have become a colossus of the music world, sweeping all before her in terms of record sales and awards, and single-handedly propping up the music industry with her record-breaking new album 25. But now one of that album’s most acclaimed tracks, “Million Years Ago”, in which Adele seems to lament the ordinary life fame has taken from her, has become embroiled in a plagiarism row. Fans of the Kurdish artist were quick to point out similarities between the album track and Kaya's song, which was released in 1985.

While we wait to see how this case will develop, we must remind you that this isn’t the first time Adele has been accused for plagiarism. Her record breaking single “Hello” also had its controversies. Some claim that for this song she borrowed a little bit from Tom Waits’ “Martha.” Adele’s record label admitted that Tom Waits was one of the influences on the album, but denied the allegations. Also Lionel Ritchie is reportedly considering filing a suit, because he thinks Adele’s “Hello” is a rip off of his own hit “Hello” from 1983. If this goes out to court, things could get messy.
