will.i.am has been known to dabble in EDM over the last few years, doing everything from working with David Guetta to recently releasing a trap-esque single with Justin Bieber. Earlier today, though, Mat Zo found out about will.i.am’s forthcoming single, “Let’s Go” (which features Chris Brown), and promptly deleted his Twitter account at in protest of what he feels is thievery of his single “Rebound” with Arty, which Anjunabeats release in 2011. Check out the two tracks:

As you can see from the tweets up above, both Arty and Anjunabeats had no idea about this track, which is apparently set to released on April 19, a little over two full years after “Rebound” was released. With both producers and the label saying they had no idea of this track’s existence, we’re wondering what will.i.am has to say. If it was just the artists saying they had no idea, it would be one thing, but this is the label that dropped the track – he’ll have some explaining to do!

UPDATE Chris Brown says he “aint got shit to do” with this.

    You accidently added the word “Did” to the title.

    It should read. “Will.I.Am steals Arty & Mat Zo’s ‘Rebound’ for his new single.”

    I don’t get it, why would someone steal a track like that these days? It’s obvious that you’re not going to get away with especially if you’re as known as Will.I.Am. Has to be some sort of mistake.

    Well all I have to say is that Will.I.Am ran out of ideas! I love trance music and to see them take advantage of the more secrete genre isn’t fair. Mainstream is there for a reason while underground tracks are there to hold the root and the core of the specific genre. It’s sad to see that the “dying” genre (from what everyone says) is being used for mainstream use for popularity. FYI “Pop” is short for popular. If you refer to pop music, it’s not a music genre, it’s what popular on the market right now. J.S.
