"That 'Sally Walker' beat sounds like a worse version of the beat for 'Money'."
Iggy Azalea dropped her new track "Sally Walker" on Friday (March 15), which will feature on her upcoming album In My Defense. However, some fans have noticed it sounds suspiciously like Cardi B's single "Money".
Iggy Azalea got sent a vial of semen by a "fan"
Both "Sally Walker" and "Money" have similar opening beats and happen to have been produced by the same person, JWhiteDidIt. The Grammy-award winning producer also worked on Cardi B's breakthrough hit "Bodak Yellow" and "I Like It".
Take a listen to "Sally Walker" and "Money" for yourself here.
After listening to both songs, people accused Iggy of "stealing" Cardi's beat.
Wow Iggy Azalea for real just completely ripped off Cardi B. Just because you are a woman does not mean ripping off people’s work is not okay. Doing it to another woman, especially when you’re white and she’s a woman of color, is fuckin trash.— Chanda Prescod-Weinstein 🙅🏽♀️ 🇧🇧🌈 (@IBJIYONGI) March 17, 2019

Okay, so the tracks do sound a little similar, but JWhiteDidIt has defended Iggy over the song snatching drama. Firstly, both singles have a different BPM (beats per minute). And he reportedly checked Iggy was happy with the track before it was released.
JWhiteDidIt even clapped back at a fan that assumed Iggy wanted him to produce "Sally Walker" to get a remake of "Money".
