Critical reception[edit]

On November 10, 2010, singer Jason Mraz admits in an interview that the Camp Rock 2 tune "Introducing Me" sounds a lot like his song "I'm Yours".[6] He also said: "I heard the song, and it was just a tremendous, tremendous horror of a tune," he said. "I noticed a few similarities in the melody, but it wasn't enough to pick up the phone and argue with somebody about it. If anything, I just wanted my $1.29 back that I spent on iTunes.[7]
