Producer/Soundcloud user Bitman explains why Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” and Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” are virtually the same from a musical standpoint (and mashes the two songs to prove it). Its not that amazing that two pop songs are very similar, but still worth noting.

The songs are both in D minor. Miley Cyrus song “Wrecking Ball” mixed with “Locked Out of Heaven” by Bruno Mars. Same chorus, different applications of triplets in melody in form, otherwise almost identical. No same producers, no crossover between personnel at all (as far as digging on Wikipedia has shown). New Miley album drops Oct 4th with this as one of the main tracks. Bruno Mars’s song came out last October. I see a pattern.

Pop music isn’t really much more than nursery rhymes with adult undertones and studio production. Wisen up, people.
