Simon Cowell works with the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry to find out who has hacked Syco's computers and leaked his artists' songs.
Simon Cowell is mad that "Don't Let Me Down", a duet song between his artist Leona Lewis and Justin Timberlake, has been leaked. The unfinished track reportedly is worked on by Justin's production team The Y's and seriously considered as the lead single from Leona's upcoming second studio album.
Prior to the leak of Leona's track, several unmastered materials, this time belonging to Alexandra Burke, have also been stolen from Simon's recording company Syco's computers. With such issue at hands, the music producer who is also the judge of "American Idol" and "The X Factor" runs an investigation to find out the hacker.
"Syco are working alongside the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, the British Phonographic Industry, the police and investigators in this and they are making fast progress," a spokesperson for Syco told The Sun. "We will certainly look to bring charges against those who are responsible. We cannot give any more details at this stage for operational reasons."
