Plini Releases Statement Regarding Doja Cat Using His Solo On MTV Performance

This last weekend Doja Cat performed her hit song “Say So” on the MTV European Music awards. About 2:50 into her performance, people noticed a familiar sounding solo. One that was actually recorded 4 years earlier by Australian guitarist Plini.

Plini acknowledged via Twitter the night of the performance, that he had no idea they were using his music. He has now released a statement on Instagram addressing the situation.

“in case you missed it, @dojacat ‘s recent performance of “say so” for MTV borrowed a few elements from my song “handmade cities” for its new live arrangement. i think it’s an awesome performance (shout out to the homie @laribasilio – sick playing!) and more than anything, find it absolutely hilarious that something i wrote 4 years ago in my bedroom would find its way here.

“the lack of prior communication about it or proper credit upon release is disappointing but not particularly surprising in a sector of the industry that is usually more interested in clout than creativity. (it’s being sorted now, but would have been cooler a million views ago)

“if you read this far, and are new to my music, you can preorder my upcoming album from the link in my bio. in the words of @iamdarionjavon – you’ve never heard me produce/arrange ANYthing like this before 😈🤟🔥”

Hopefully this situation will shed some light on Plini’s music and bring it to a new set of listeners.
