As American singer songwriter, Meghan Trainor’s debut single, All About That Bass, climbed the Billboard charts, it came to the attention of fans that All About That Bass carried a very similar melody to three-membered group Koyote’s Happy Mode, which was released in September of 2006.

The similarities were brought to the attention of songwriter Joo Young Hoon, who produced and penned the lyrics for Happy Mode many years before.
