just an ordinary day in the shit music industry of America. Wil I am of the Black eyed peas admit to the world that he stole beats for his latest album.
Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas is embroiled in a copyright dispute after Russian DJ Arty accused the artist of stealing the beat for his Chris Brown collaboration “Let’s Go.”
On Tuesday, Adams, 38, spoke to radio station KIIS-FM about the kerfuffle, admitting that he used “Rebound” as the basis of “Let’s Go.”
“Arty is a dope producer, so I wrote this song to ‘Rebound’ this last year,” Adams said. “I got in touch with Arty and showed it ( to) him, did a different version to it cause I asked him to make it newer ’cause I don’t just wanna take your song and rap over it. But in a year’s time, time’s gone by, (and) we preferred writing over and using the (original) ‘Rebound.’
“Something happened (with) the clearance,” Adams continued. “Hopefully, we resolved the issue.”
“I’m a fan of Arty. I think he’s great and the world needs to know about how talented those guys are,” Adams added. “It’s sad that’s turned into a fiasco.”
