Well as we all know his songs are normally a hit but do you think this is the right way to get the love and affection from the audience? Do you care that he copies music from other artists? Or are you more keen to just dance to the tunes that he makes? The real irony is that he is still part of the industry and also gets movies after movies to showcase his copying talent. Hope that some day he actually gets inspired with himself and comes up with a original number soon.

Happy Listening and Viewing 😉
