It seems like SM Entertainment couldn’t ignore the plagiarism accusations of EXO’s Love Shot forever.
Recently, Louis Tomlinson and 5 other producers behind Back To You have been added to the composer/author list of EXO‘s Love Shot on GEMA, a German copyright association that handles the licensing of songs and performances.
The addition is considered as SM Entertainment’s admission for the similarities between the two songs while avoiding public acknowledgment of the accusations.
The reaction of EXO-Ls and Louis Tomlinson fans has been understandably divided. While Louis Tomlinson fans were happy to see him finally getting credit for his work,
The proof is in the credits. Nothing more needs to be said. EXO stole Louis' work and had to credit him for it or get sued. Simple as that.
