Anjunabeats Makes An Official Statement Regarding Will.I.Am

Today Ajunabeats has made an official statement regarding the Will.I.Am incident regarding the clear plagiarism of Arty and Mat Zo's track “Rebound.” If you're not familiar with this topic, a couple weeks ago, Will.I.Am uploaded his new track called “Let's Go” which was a direct rip off of Arty and Mat Zo's “Rebound.” On April 23rd, Will.I.Am admitted to using “Rebound” but by April 30th, said that the Lawyers were the reason that the song was credited properly.

Ajunabeats has finally responded by saying

“Anjunabeats is the Record Label behind Arty and Mat Zo and owns the master recording rights to their collaboration “Rebound.” Mat Zo and Arty have been important members of the Anjunabeats family for a number of years and “Rebound” was one of the label’s most popular releases in 2011.”

“As has been widely reported, a large section of “Rebound” was sampled on’s track “Let’s Go featuring Chris Brown” and this took place without the permission of Anjunabeats or Arty & Mat Zo.
Although Arty (but not Mat Zo) was credited in the sleeve notes, this is not the same as obtaining permission. To present someone else’s work as your own, you need to seek permission, agree terms and file paperwork, which has not happened in this case.
We’ve remained silent on this issue until now but as a record label it is our obligation to protect our artists’ interests and we felt it was necessary to respond to some of the inaccuracies that have been reported following’s recent comments to Associated Press.”
