Another pointed out that the outfits worn by both artists in a certain scene from these two videos are similar. In Party music video, Queen Bey can be seen donning a black bathing suit and a yellow fur coat while Taylor Swift is wearing a pink bikini and a fur coat in her video.

This is not the first time Taylor Swift has been criticized for “ripping off” Beyoncé. In May, Taylor was called out after she used a marching band with pastel-colored outfits, backup dancers and fireworks for the performance of her single ME! at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.


Beyhive took notice and claimed that it was similar to Beyoncé’s epic Coachella performance in 2018.
