Bad news for will.i.am, who is said to have stolen a track from house producers Mat Zo and Arty. Let's Go, the will.i.am song in question, features Chris Brown and happens to share the same name as a song by house producer Calvin Harris (that one features Ne-Yo, so the rubric is essentially identical).

It also sounds extremely similar to Rebound, a dance track produced by Zo and Arty. (Take a listen to the two songs at the bottom of this article.) In a series of tweets, Arty explained that no one had approached Anjunabeats, the trance label run by massive dance trio Above & Beyond, to clear the song.
