Alicia Keys, one of the most talented musicians is accused of resampling a Black Eyed Peas song? Keys' new song No One shares a little more similarity to the Black Eyed Peas song Where Is the Love. Listen to the BEP's song and then listen to Key's song. In fact someone went further and synchronized the songs and found not only did both songs have the same chord structure, they also had a very similar beat and the choruses, verses and interludes seemed to play at the same point in each song. These two songs have not been edited. He only found about a 1% difference in change. Well below the industry standard I presume. I believe it's 10%. Listen and decide for yourself.

I don't know if it was her intent or not. Maybe she just really liked the BEP song and wanted a song with that same structure, who knows. But the fact is that they sound very similar...
