Jaime Ciero is sueing the company over comparisons to his 2008 hit 'Volar'. But are they similar? Listen and decide for yourself...

Demi Lovato and Idina Menzel have been named in a new lawsuit over the Disney singalong ballad 'Let It Go' from the movie Frozen.

TMZ reports that Jaime Ciero has filed the case against Disney, claiming that his 2008 song 'Volar' contains many similarities to the 2013 movie's big number, including "hooks, melodies, note combinations, production, lyrics, textures and themes".

Idina Menzel, of course, played Elsa in the original cast while Demi Lovato recorded a version for a single release that played over the end credits. The film went on to gross $1.219 billion worldwide and will be adapted into a Broadway musical next year. Ciero claims he is entitled to a portion of the massive profits Disney have accumulated.

So, does 'Volar' sound anything like 'Let It Go'? Decide for yourself...
