B'Day Deleted Over Copyright Breach

 
B'Day Deleted Over Copyright Breach

26 April 2007

After reports surfaced last week that Beyonce is being sued for breach of copyright by British singer Des'ree, the singer and her management have now conceded defeat by confirming they will delete the special re-packaged edition of her album 'B'Day'.

The revamped version of 'B'Day' features Beyonce's cover of Des'ree's nineties hit 'Kissing You', renamed as 'Still in Love (Kissing You)'.

Beyonce said the song is "one of my all-time favourite songs". "I just did it for myself.... And I let people hear it and they were like, 'you are crazy, you have to put it on the album'."

The matter will be taken to court, with Des'ree seeking $150,000 from Beyonce in damages. A preliminary hearing will be held on May 4.
