If you're ever thinking about taking someone's art and playing it off as your own, it's probably not such a good idea to steal from someone who's already world-famous. Just yesterday, a singer made the mistake of uploading a new video of one of her songs onto YouTube, which that sounds identical to Taeyang's 2014 hit "Eyes, Nose, Lips," and she was literally caught red-handed by Kpop fans from around the world.

Russian singer Albina just made the mistake of a lifetime, and she's got quite a lot of explaining to do with this one. On Wednesday, the video for her newest single "I Love You," was just released on YouTube, and within hours, her song racked up over 10,000 dislikes and the comments section was disabled. Not exactly the kind of reactions she was hoping for, but what do you expect when you plagiarize a song from a performer who happens to be in one of the biggest boy bands in the world? Albina's song, as you can hear, sounds almost like the exact same song as Taeyang's "Eyes, Nose, Lips," a single from his solo album Rise in 2014. What makes it extra-mind-boggling is that Taeyang won Song of the Year at the Mnet Asia Music Awards for "Eyes, Nose, Lips," and Albina still thought that no one would recognize the similarities between her newest song and his.

It's only fair to let Albina explain herself, but she's dug herself into quite a hole with this one. Her reputation is now that of a thief, an artist who steals from others, and that's not something fans take lightly. But if there's any consolation in all this, it's that more people around the world now know about Albina than before all this went down. For that, she can thank Taeyang and BIGBANG — again.

Check out the comparison videos and individual music videos below. Judge for yourself, but they're pretty much the same song. Oops!
