Songwriter Accuses Lady Gaga Of Stealing Note Progression For Her Song ‘Shallow’

Lady Gaga slams claims she ripped off Shallow from unknown songwriter

Unheard of artist Steve Ronsen has claimed the melody to "Shallow" was stolen from his own 2012 work titled "Almost", since they both implement notes G, A, B in progression.

After this mess, Ronsen still claims for the first three notes of his song, "Almost" and these notes composure appears in the "Shallow" first lines.

Page Six reports that Ronsen is asking for a multi-million dollar settlement.

Is Lady Gaga the reason for Bradley Cooper's split with Irina Shayk?

To fight the allegations, Gaga has hired power lawyer Orin Snyder, who said in a statement to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six: "Mr. Ronsen and his lawyer are trying to make easy money off the back of a successful artist. It is shameful and wrong", he said to ET.

"Shallow" is a track from Gaga and Bradley Cooper-starrer "A Star is Born" which released in 2018.

Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, penned the song with Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.

The latest: A songwriter and working musician claims Lady Gaga, 33, lifted key elements of a song he released in 2012 for her hit from her film A Star Is Born, Shallow.

"We provided Mr. Shirian a lengthy letter with the findings of multiple leading musicologists, each of whom found no actionable similarities between the two songs", the statement continued. Music experts, as well as Gaga herself, have busted the claims as absurd, arguing the melody has been recurrent for the past few centuries, to say the least. He is certain that should the case see any development, then the pop star will "fight it vigorously" and ultimately "prevail".

Lady Gaga has been accused of stealing Shallow from another songwriter.

"There was a grave nature to the room". It's a conversation between a man and a woman.

Only last week, Katy Perry had to pay out $2.78m when a court established that her song, Dark Horse, had borrowed elements of a Christian rap song. And then she meets this superstar, and he believes in her, and she's overwhelmed by that belief.

Shallow has been streamed around 200 million times in the U.S. and became the longest-running number-one song in the United States by a female lead.
