will.i.am “borrows” MatZo & Arty’s Melodic ‘Rebound’ for #willpower Album


In an incredibly digital world, it’s amazing what kind of access we have available to us on the internet. Unfortunately, for some cases that can work against us. A frequent Top 40 pop name on American Dance Charts, “music producer” will.i.am is currently under a LOT of heat for essentially “borrowing” the master sample from a track by our favorites MatZo & Arty. ‘Rebound’s unmistakeable melody can be heard prominently in will.i.am’s “song”. With cheesy vocals by Chris Brown thrown on top of this trancey melody, there are tons of infuriated fans. Give a listen to both & there’s not the slightest doubt that “Let’s Go” is “Rebound”.

Whats worse is that Anjunabeats never gave any type of clearance or OK as to using any portion of the song on will.i.am’s next album entitled #willpower.

UPDATE AS OF MAY 2nd, 2013

*** ANJUNABEATS has released an offical statement regarding will.i.am’s infringement of copyright ***
