A spokesperson for Island/Universal Records has denied rumor suggesting that Amy Winehouse's new songs have been turned down. "It's absolutely not true," so the spokesperson claims in a brief statement.

Amy was rumored to have difficulty in taking her new materials to the next level because the tracks were not good enough for Island/Universal Records. "The lyrics are very dark indeed," a source previously told The Sun regarding the reason behind the alleged rejection.

Amy Winehouse reportedly spent most of her recent time in a studio located at St Lucia to record a follow-up to her 2006 studio album "Back to Black". There, she is said to have "ditched her trademark vintage soul sound and is now heavily influenced by reggae" in her new record.

If its reggae influenced it still is possible for it be successful. Look @ Fugees, Lauryh Hill, No Doubt's Hey Baby, bk's Baby Boy f Sean Paul.
