Flo-Rida ft Taoi Cruz – Hangover (Snippet) [Avicii Controversy]
Posted by jewcebox on July 26, 2011
This controversy is old news, but with what looks like a soon to be official release of this track, here’s a brief explanation of what happened. Flo-Rida dropped a song featuring him rapping over Avicii’s “Levels” or “ID” which left people confused to say the least. Had everyone’s favorite new comer Avicii already sold out? Did Flo-Rida see the rising potential and amazing melodies found in Avicii and decide to seize the opportunity before someone else did? Thankfully, Avicii hadn’t sold out and Flo-Rida had used the track without permission. To take control of the situation, Avicii took matters to Twitter. He fired back with a few different tweets explaining that he did not in fact give Flo-Rida permission to use the track and there was not a collaboration in the works.
However, this snippet of Flo-Rida & Taio Cruz just leaked which features the same key as Avicii’s “Levels/ID” with different synths, but fades into Avicii’s track at one point. The transition is awful which is clearly why this is a snippet and still not the final cut, but it leaves the possibility of them sampling Avicii’s track. Hopefully before the song is officially released they’ve figured out the instrumental or cleared things with Avicii’s camp this time, unlike the Leona Lewis case.
Regardless looks like we’ve got a huggeee radio banger in the works from two of the premier hit makers, Flo-Rida & Taio Cruz.
