Kiara Simone talks about the situation in an interview with ‘Hollywood Unlocked’
Around the 4:14 mark, “ My lyrics were definitely stolen.. Well everyone knows Nicki dropped a song called “Barbie Dreams” and last year I dropped a record called “How To Rob”. Now mind you that’s posted on YouTube 2017. when we dropped it was on blogs. . People were talking about it and industry, celebrities were reaching out to me like “Yo, that was dope!”. Reaching out to my manager texting him like “Yo that record…” Everyone heard the record , so then “Barbie Dreams” drops. And, I’m minding my own business just you know enjoying my day and people are hitting me up like “Yo, Did you hear this “Barbie Dreams” record?” “Why she say this line or that line like you said all of these bars are the same as your bars?”.. Let me go check it out so I’m listening to it. I’m like okay that’s my bar. Alright that’s my bar. It happened a couple more times. And, I was like Yo this ain’t right.
At the 5:18 mark Kiara explains what bar was replicated.
Kiara mentions the line “I said, the line about Young Thug wearing a dress. “I said the bar about Drake crying. “I said the bar about DJ Khaled being fat.” “I said 50 Cent and Power”. I can’t even think of them all. .. That is a thing with me you like you know people were saying “Oh you know maybe ya’ll used the same people. Ya’ll said the same thing.s but she actually knows these people.”
“My thing is if she knows these people she has more to say about them than I do. So.. Why say the same thing that I said?” Nah… It’s not a coincidence. You got more more things to say about them. Why take my bars?
The interviewer says, ” Some Nicki fans that have been around for some time would reference her 2007 mix tape ‘Playtime Is Over’ where she originally did ‘Dreams’.
Kiara responds, “Dope mixtape but as I said those lyrics aren’t the same lyrics as “Barbie Dreams” so people can keep bringing that mixtape all they want to but they are not showing me “Oh those lyrics is the same as “Barbie Dreams” lyrics. Like, what’s everybody’s point in bringing the ’07 record when the lyrics are not the same. You put her lyrics next to mine “How To Rob”record lyrics then we could have a conversation…. It is what it is is. You can look up and somebody and turn out to be not what you expected. I can come out and about this Nicki drama blah, blah , blah. I have facts thought to back myself up and I also have talent. So, we can forget about that. We can get rid of that today i’m going to still be pop and be hot. Because, of mine talent and who I am as an artist.
Kiara says at the 8:19 mark, “I’m not clout-chasing. I’m just addressing.” “I just want my credit where it is due.”
At the 9:17 Kiara says she haven’t got around to listening to Nicki Minaj’s new album ‘Queen’.
