Like Fergie, Gwen Stefani has made her comeback. Like Fergie, we're not really feeling the comeback single.

Gwen's "Baby Don't Lie" was just released yesterday. It's been eight years since Gwen's last solo effort, and we're sad to say we don't particularly love it.

We're not the only ones who don't love it… Gwen and her team of super producers Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, and Noel Zancanella have been accused of ripping off a little-known Swedish singer named Ji Nilsson.

First, listen to Gwen's "Baby Don't Lie":

Now, take a listen to Ji Nilsson's "Heartbreakfree":

We do hear some slight similarities… but completely ripping off Ji? We don't think so.

What do you think? Is Gwen guilty? Did her team merely take inspiration from Ji? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
