British DJ Adam Freeland has taken to Twitter.com to vent about what he says is a clear case of plagiarism.
Freeland insists that the track behind the Black Eyed Peas’ ‘Party All the Time’, off their latest album The E.N.D., mirrors a track he produced titled ‘Mancry’ a little too closely to be coincidence.
“OK. Check this. Listen to our song ‘Mancry’. Now listen to Black Eyed Peas ‘Party all the time’ WTF! (What the f**k!)” Freeland wrote on his Twitter page. While he hasn’t filed any legal claims against the Peas, Freeland’s attorney has purportedly reached out to the group’s lawyer in an attempt to resolve the issue.
In 2007 the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am was the focus of scrutiny after it was discovered that the track ‘I Got it From My Momma‘ from his solo album Songs About Girls used an uncleared sample of Daft Punk‘s ‘Around in the World’.
