Will.i.am denies stealing from Russian producer
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- Will.i.am says he's been unfairly accused of stealing a song from a Russian dance producer.
The producer-rapper-singer has acknowledged reaching out to trance producer Arty after hearing his 2011 song with London's Mat Zo, Rebound. Will.i.am recorded a new version with Chris Brown titled, Let's Go.
He said he emailed Arty, who initially responded positively to an invitation to collaborate. But in recent weeks, the Russian DJ and producer told fans on his Facebook page that there was no final deal.
Will.i.am credits Arty as a writer on the song in the liner notes for his album #willpower, released this week. He blamed the slow legal clearance process and said his legal team was also at work on the issue.
