Lady Gaga is facing fresh plagiarism allegations over her latest track Born This Way from two music producers.

The music producers have claimed that there are ‘similarities’ with a song they wrote for a South Korean girl band.

The Poker Face hitmaker released the highly-anticipated new single last month (Feb11) and was immediately criticized over allegations the track sounds just like Madonna's Express Yourself.

Gaga has since dismissed the slurs, and even insists Madonna has contacted her to support the record.

But now the controversial singer is facing fresh plagiarism accusations from production duo E-Tribe, who have announced plans to question Gaga over the song's alleged resemblance to a track called Be Happy, which they wrote for pop group SNSD.

Gaga"Someone this morning told me that there were reports of Lady Gaga plagiarising SNSD's Be Happy. I listened, and I do feel that there are similarities. The way the song flows and the arrangements are, honestly, the same. I am currently working to get in contact with Lady Gaga's publishing label to find further information," the Daily Star quoted an E-Tribe representative telling Newsen.
