Crush‘s “Oasis” was under fire recently with speculations of plagiarism because it sounded similar to Eric Bellinger‘s “Awkward.”However, it seems that Eric Bellinger has other thoughts as he responded in a short tweet on July 24th. “I’ve been seeing all the “Awkward/Oasis” tweets… The songs sounded similar, but I don’t think it was plagiarism. Keep killin it @crush9244” he writes.
Fans have responded to Bellinger’s post with positive remarks about the singer’s encouragement to Crush as well as his statement regarding the incident.
