Leona Lewis' 'Collide' Yanked Off Radio as Plagiarism Case Goes to Court


Drama surrounding the song which was supposed to be lead single of Leona's new album was taken to court after complaint was filed in a London court.

Leona Lewis might need to get herself another new single for the first offering of her upcoming third studio album. Rumor has it, the former winner of "The X Factor" was recently forced to remove her newly-released song "Collide" from radio playlists due to copyright infringement accusation.

The removal was made shortly after complaint was filed by DJ Avicii in a London court. His label Ministry of Sound issued a statement regarding the legal action, "Avicii is an up-and-coming talent; we think he should be given a fair crack at making this record the hit it deserves to be."

When Leona was hit with the plagiarism allegation last month, she was quick to deny it. "With regards to my song, avicii was aware & agreeing publishing splits for himself and his manager," she informed her Twitter followers in response to the controversy.

The song's producer Sandy Vee also voiced his denial, stating that the DJ was actually listed on the song credit. He tweeted, "Talk only if you know what u r talking about....if not shut up. FYI , check the credits, u will find Tim Berg, Autumn and I."

However, Tim had a different story which contradicted Leona and Sandy's statements. He posted on his own Twitter page, "To be clear im not taking credit for the melody (everything was cleared with penguin cafe orchestra and simon jeffes who wrote the song)."

    the song has NOT been yanked off radio. It will only be 'yanked off' if avicii wins his case. word on the street implies he won't.
