At last! At last! Will.i.am admits to using beats from Arty and Mat Zo’s ‘Rebound’. Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief, now we have confirmation of something everyone knew was the truth. Does his credibility shoot down the drain? How will this affect Will.i.am and dance music? Will this actually give EDM even MORE mainstream attention and popularity?
Will.i.am told radio station KIIS-FM his confession. “Arty is a dope producer, so I wrote this song to ‘Rebound’ this last year,” Adams said. “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 in a year’s time, time’s gone by, (and) we preferred writing over and using the (original) ‘Rebound.’
Now what? We will keep you updated on the Twitter war that is about to ensue.
