It has been 46 years since the song “Imagine” was a hit for former Beatle John Lennon, and now Yoko Ono will begin sharing writing credit on the song.

Lennon had said in an 1980 interview that Yoko should have credit because the lyrics and concept came from her poetry.

The National Music Publishers Association made the announcement that they are in the process of making the change.
