Demi Lovato didn’t sample Sleigh Bells without their permission after all

Demi Lovato‘s producers have denied Sleigh Bells’ accusation that two of their songs were a sampled on her new album without the band’s permission.

The song in question is Lovato’s ‘Stars’, which appears on her album ‘Confident’.

“flattered you guys sampled ‘Infinity Guitars’ & ‘Riot Rhythm’ for ‘Stars’,” the New York duo tweeted earlier this week, “but we were not contacted. Gotta clear those.”

Now Lovato’s ‘people’ have issued a statement in return from producers Carl Falk and Rami Yacoub.

“We did not use any samples in Demi Lovato’s song ‘Stars’,” it reads. “Demi was also not involved with the production. She only wrote top line.”

There you go then.
