American singer Bryson Bernard—who created the “Cupid Shuffle”—is accusing a popular K-pop boy band of copying his song.

In a tweet, Bernard—better known as Cupid—said the Seventeen’s song “Left & Right” sounds like his 2007 hit. 

“This is the music business! That ‘inspired’ card has EXPIRED. The business hasn’t been done. @pledis_17  I made the blueprint. That cost $ @SeventeenFY,” he tweeted on Friday.  

Bernard included a video featuring snippets of the band’s song alongside his own song. He also played the snippets in a since-deleted YouTube video, asking fans to “check (out) this album and tell me what me and my team should do.”

Fans are urging Bernard to refrain from pinning the blame on the group’s members and instead blame the South Korean entertainment company they are being trained by, Pledis Entertainment.
