The Black Eyed Peas frontman releases yet another track off album '#willpower' amidst claims it was a rip-off.
Just a day after debuting "Fall Down" with Miley Cyrus, will.i.am unleashes another superstar collaboration track off his soon-to-be-released album "#willpower". This time, the 38-year-old songwriter/record producer drops his team-up single with hip-hop superstar Chris Brown entitled "Let's Go".
Breezy ably assists the Black Eyed Peas leader in the new five-and-a-half-minute song, as he calls out to listeners to "get crazy." He sings, "All day girl I've had you on my mind/and I'm thinkin' bout maybe later me and you can spend some time" along Will's electro-dance vibe.
Controversy seems to be trailing Brown all the time, as his new track with will.i.am gets embroiled in a copyright infringement allegation. Producers Arty and Mat Zo claim will.i.am ripped off their dance track "Rebound". Arty says "never cleared rights through Anjunabeats, who's only one label, who owns [sic] the rights for 'Rebound'."
"I don't even know who mat zo Or arty is? I ain't got s**t to do wit if ur mad or not. Someone asked for a feature on a record and I did it," Brown tweeted, implying he just did vocals on the song and nothing more that will implicate him. "I don't listen to that sh*t half the time anyway. #X" and "#staypositive."
Zo, meanwhile, appealed to his and Arty's defenders to remain respectful in light of their reaction to will.i.am's alleged pilfered track. "I really and truly appreciate all the support you are giving me and Arty in response to will.i.am's copyright infringement. However, this doesn't excuse the horrific abuse you're sending the way of will.i.am and Chris Brown, and it especially doesn't excuse being racist," he said.
