The previously documented legal battle that Leona Lewis was centre of has been settled. This legal battle surrounded a single which sounded remarkably like a track which had been released by an up and coming DJ. The DJ who released the track and made claims that Leona Lewis had copied his backing track was twenty two year old Swedish dance producer Avicii.
An agreement has now been made by all those involved within the legal battle. It is understand that Leona and her record label, Syco, will work with the rising dance producer. The single which has caused the controversy is Collide, the Syco record label which is owned by Simon Cowell has strongly denied any form of plagiarisng throughout this legal battle.
The dance producer Avicii had attempted to block the Collide single from being released after he claimed that instrumental parts of the song had been directly taken from his own track, Fade Into Darkness.
It is believed that an agreement was made in the very last moments prior to the single being released. The agreement between Syco and the record label Ministry of Sound which represents Avicii now means that the high court trial will not occur. Full details of the agreement have now been released but it is understood that the single will now be officially launched on September 4th.
In a statement released by Syco it was explained that both artists would now work on the single Collide. It was also stated that the single has had an excellent reaction since it was aired on the radio in the UK and that it has already topped numerous unofficially club charts across the country. It now remains to be seen whether this single will be released as a duet or as a single by Leona Lewis as previously planned.
Avicii alleges that Syco had planned to release a straight copy of his music, the producer whose real name is Tim Bergling stated he was insulted by the moved made by the record company.
Begling is not understood to be happy with the agreement that has been made and now vows to focus on his music and achieving number one hits.
