Lizzo has been hit with one other plagiarism accusation for her Billboard No. 1 tune “Truth Hurts.”

On Tuesday, producer Justin Raisen spoke out on Instagram on behalf of himself and his brother Jeremiah Raisen, demanding partial credit score for the lyric “I just took a DNA test turns I’m 100% that bitch” — probably the most celebrated verse on the monitor.

Raisen shared a video in try to again his declare writing, “The Truth about ‘Truth Hurts.’”

The clip exhibits moments of Lizzo, 31, and Raisen working collectively within the studio on a tune “Healthy” from April 2017. Lizzo croons the very same hook as “Truth Hurts,” however in a better pitch and with out the piano within the background.

“On April 11th, 2017, we wrote a song called ‘Healthy’ w/Lizzo, Jesse St. John and Yves Rothman at our studio,” Raisen wrote.

He then defined, “‘I just took a DNA test turns out I’m 100% that bitch,’ was taken from ‘Healthy’ and used in ‘Truth Hurts.’ We were never contacted about being credited for the use of the parts of ‘Healthy’ (melody, lyrics, and chords) that appear in ‘Truth Hurts.’”

Raisen shared that he reached out to “Ricky Reed and Lizzo’s team about fixing it, we put the song in dispute in 2017 when it came out.”

The Truth about “Truth Hurts” On April 11th, 2017, we wrote a song called “Healthy” w/ Lizzo, Jesse St John, and Yves Rothman at our studio. “I just took a DNA test turns out I’m 100% that bitch” was taken from “Healthy” and used in “Truth Hurts”. We were never contacted about being credited for the use of the parts of “Healthy” (melody, lyrics, and chords) that appear in “Truth Hurts”. After reaching out to Ricky Reed and Lizzo’s team about fixing it, we put the song in dispute in 2017 when it came out. We’ve tried to sort this out quietly for the last two years, only asking for 5% each but were shutdown every time. Coming forward publicly to family, friends, artists, and colleagues seems to be the only way at this point in relieving some of our emotional distress caused by this. The last thing we want to do is throw any negativity toward Lizzo’s momentum and movement as a cultural figure. If we believe in what she’s preaching, believing in ourselves & our own voices is something we thought she’d understand. Shout out to the singer Mina Lioness ( @minalioness ) for tweeting “I just did a DNA test turns out I’m 100% that bitch”. A meme of that came up in our writing session & inspired the lyric and melody we wrote together. If Ricky and Lizzo’s team decide to settle this dispute with us, we would like to share some of the proceeds with Mina for her influence on Healthy. The clip below shows a video & photos from the day we wrote “Healthy” along with the comparisons between the two works. All the Love, Justin & Jeremiah Raisen #lizzo #truthhurts #healthy #billboard

While Raisen is demanding motion, he mentioned, “The last thing we want to do is throw any negativity toward Lizzo’s momentum and movement as a cultural figure.”

“If we believe in what she’s preaching, believing in ourselves & our own voices is something we thought she’d understand.”

Raisen additionally factors out that the very lyric that followers have grown to like was impressed by singer Mina Lioness. The artist tweeted “I just did a DNA test turns out I’m 100% that bitch” in February 2017. Lizzo drops “Truth Hurts” in September 2017.

“A meme of that came up in our writing session & inspired the lyric and melody we wrote together. If Ricky and Lizzo’s team decide to settle this dispute with us, we would like to share some of the proceeds with Mina for her influence on ‘Healthy.’”

Raisen concluded the submit writing, “All the Love,” signing it along with his title and his brother Justin’s title.

Both Lizzo’s rep and lawyer Cynthia S. Arato didn’t instantly reply to PEOPLE’s request for remark.

Arato has since refuted the allegations to The New York Times.

“The Raisens are not writers of ‘Truth Hurts,’” Arato mentioned in a press release to the publication. “They did not collaborate with Lizzo or anyone else to create this song, and they did not help write any of the material that they now seek profit from, which is why they expressly renounced any claim to the work, in writing, months ago.”

Justin and Jeremiah’s declare comes a little bit over a 12 months after followers referred to as Lizzo out for plagiarism after discovering Mina’s tweet.

“Truth Hurts @Lizzo and the truth is you’re a thief,” the fan mentioned alongside a seize of Mina’s submit. In response, Lizzo said, “I’ve never seen this before in my life. That’s crazy.”

“But u know, there’s 10 BILLION ppl on the planet. The odds of multiple people having the same idea are VERY high. The odds of multiple ppl putting it in song w/ millions of streams are low. Nothing new under the sun.”

Lizzo even fired again to Mina herself on Twitter, writing, “‘Truth Hurts’ was written in June fyi — someone made a meme on IG that said ‘I’m 100% that bitch’ and we were inspired, I give that meme credit when I talk about making the song. I’ve never seen ur viral tweet but I’m glad it exists.”

In September, after information broke that “Truth Hurts” scored the No. 1 spot, Lizzo declared it was a win for “anybody who ever felt like they voice wasn’t heard.”

“WE’RE NUMBER 1,” she captioned a screenshot of the newest Billboard chart. “THIS IS A W FOR ALL OF US. ANYBODY WHO EVER FELT LIKE THEY VOICE WASN’T HEARD. ANYBODY WHO FELT LIKE THEY WEREN’T GOOD ENOUGH. YOU ARE. WE ARE. CHAMPIONS. I LOVE YALL three MUCH. LIZZBIANS UNITE 🌈.”

Speaking to PEOPLE in July, Lizzo admitted that she practically left music after dropping the tune.

“The day I released ‘Truth Hurts’ was probably one of the darkest days I’ve had ever in my career. I remember thinking, ‘If I quit music now, nobody would notice. This is my best song ever, and nobody cares,’” Lizzo recollects. “I was like, ‘F— it, I’m done.’ And a lot of people rallied; my producer, my publicist and my family, they were like, ‘Just keep going because this is the darkest recalled the dawn.’”
