China rips off ‘Frozen’ song ‘Let it Go’ and gets 2022 Olympics

A new music produced by the Chinese for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics is being for being too similar to “Let It Go” from the Disney film Frozen.

The official YouTube video for the Chinese song has garnered mocking comparisons, but we must note that YouTube is blocked in China.

“Does anyone want to burst out into ‘Let It Go’ at 01:14?”, said one user, Shiu-Wah Wong.

Check it out below.

Chinese business magazine Caijing Online analyzed the songs and said they had similar prelude chords and an eight-beat introduction, and run at almost exactly the same tempo.

No one has commented at either the Beijing Games’ organizing committee or Disney.

Frozen is the biggest grossing animated feature film of all time, taking in over $1.3 billion globally, and earning an Oscar. Disney released a Frozen themed short with Cinderella and announced in March that a sequel was in development.

Frozen 2 news is likely to come at this month’s D23 in Anaheim, so stay tuned!
