Yung accused of plagiarising Adele number

HONG KONG singer Joey Yung has been accused of plagiarism over her latest song, Ling Yan Xiang Kan (See You in a Different Light).

China Press reported that the song, composed by music producer Alex Fung, has similarities to Adele’s Rumour Has It, especially the first 30 seconds.

Yung, in her response via microblogging site Weibo, said she was happy to receive feedback over her latest release.

She said most people felt that her latest rendition was fresh, adding that she and Fung had worked very hard on the album.

The grille pierced the canvas top of the vehicle before falling off and damaging a car nearby.

Glass bottles, durian husk, locks and white paint have also been thrown from high-rise buildings in the past.

Residents said high-rise littering had become common over the past five years.
