will.i.am has been trying to ‘shed some light’ on who or what is responsible for that ridiculous ‘Scream & Shout’ song he recorded with Britney.
Speaking to MTV, i.am admitted that Tulisa had her hands on the track first, but that the producers didn’t want her to release it.
He notes: “[Tulisa] wrote to that song before I did – this is the truth.”
“But the producers of the beat – two brothers from Belgium called Lazy Jay – didn’t want her to have it, so I wrote to it and Britney is the only person I ever had in mind.”
According to The Sun, Tulisa isn’t happy because she originally recorded the track for her debut album. ‘Scream & Shout’ is currently at Number 2 in the UK, while Tulisa’s last single peaked at Number 18 so you can see why she might be a bit annoyed, but she’s always moaning about something so if it wasn’t this it would probably be something else.
