Will.I.Am Admits Stealing Beat From Arty And Zo’s “Rebound”

Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am is admitting to stealing a beat for his new record with Chris Brown, “Let’s go.”

Arty from Arty and Mat Zo, blasted the super-producer on Twitter earlier this month, calling him a thief for sampling their tune, “Rebound”. Will had remained quiet about the allegations, but finally did a little bit of damage control by explaining his side of things during an interview with KISS FM.

“So this song by Chris Brown, ‘Let’s Go’ … Arty is a dope producer so I wrote this song to ‘Rebound’ this last year,” will divulged. “I got in touch with Arty and showed it to him, did a different version to it ’cause I asked him [to] make it newer ’cause I don’t just wanna take your song and rap over it. But we did that, we collaborated.”

“But in a year’s time, time’s gone by [and] we preferred writing over and using the [original] ‘Rebound’. Something happened and the clearance … hopefully we resolved the issue,” will continued.

“I’m a fan of Arty; I think he’s great and the world needs to know about how talented those guys are. It’s sad that it’s turned into a fiasco but hopefully it’s resolved because I’m a fan of those guys to the point where I wrote to their instrumental.”

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
