Taylor Swift is back in the spotlight after she released her new song, “Look What You Made Me Do,” last week. To say that the song is a change from her usual country-pop brand is an understatement. In fact, her new tune borrows some of it’s rhythm from an old classic — Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy.”

One YouTuber even put together a helpful little clip that shows the songs side by side:

Immediately, the internet noticed the resemblance, which was so uncanny that it prompted a Washington Post article with the exasperated-sounding headline: “Yes, Taylor Swift’s new song sounds like ‘I’m Too Sexy’ — Right Said Fred has a writing credit

It turns out that Taylor actually sampled the 1991 pop hit. She even gave the band a songwriting credit. The lead singer of the group told the Post that he gave the musician his blessing when he was contacted by her, saying, “[Swift’s team] was really helpful, really polite, and they’ve been really communicative the whole time.”
