Did Bey Steal Yet Another Song???

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News

Posted by Bossip Staff

Seems like Bey stole sh*t left and right for this new album. It’s being reported that she stole that song, “Halo” from Leona Lewis:

Simon Cowell was left reeling today after Beyonce recorded a song that was originally intended for Leona Lewis. The track called ‘Halo’ was written for Leona by Ryan Tedder, lead singer for soft-pop act One Republic, who also wrote Leona’s transatlantic smash ‘Bleeding Love’. Cowell was said to be shocked by the news that Beyonce had recorded the track as he had previously agreed with Tedder that the song would be recorded by Leona. An insider at SongBMG, Leona’s record label, said: “Leona’s diary is so rammed it didn’t look like she could record it until next year. Ryan didn’t want to hang around so he gave it to Beyonce”.

We guess in recording 70 songs in preparation for this album, she forgot to write them herself.

Hear Bey’s version of “Halo” when you

    Who the phuck cares Beyonce’s status is on lame anyway, let her “steal” songs all she wants, even though it doesnt sound like she “stole” anything from reading that.

  • bored

    The Media is a mess, if this woman did not have any talent she would’ve been down the drain by now with this stealing this and stealing that stuff.

    Go Beyonce! do your thang regardless..

    We are in the last an evil days, when people with talent get this much flak and the ones we all know who cant sing or perform and is just cute get praise, we are in trouble..

    Thank The Almighty One for OBAMA!!!

    To even just leak stupid stuff like this shows were we are at!!!

    The picture is from the movie that bey just starred in about Etta James. It is a pic of her in character. Bey did a horrible job of acting in this one people

  • iiTZSxME

    how did she ” steal ” this song. last time i checked stealing is when you take something without permission & from what i read the producer gave it to her soo the caption needs to be changed & you are all right like there are alot of great promotion pics of Beyonce for I Am..Sasha Fierce ( November 18th ) out there, use one of those not the cracked out Etta James loll

  • LADY ARCHITECT (DOING BIG THINGS AT 23)

    LOL IS THIS ANY SHOCK? HER CAMP HAS BEEN STEALING SONGS FOR HER FOR THE LONGEST AND JUST OFFERING MORE MONEY FOR THEM TO SAY SHE HAD AN INPUT OF WRITING. BEYONCE DOESN’T HAVE THE EDUCATION TO WRITE A DEEP SONG. THE ONLY SONG SHE TRULY WROTE WAS “BOOTYLICIOUS” PEOPLE. DOESN’T SHE HAVE CO WRITING CREDIT FOR THIS SONG AS WELL. sORRY lEONA WOULD’VE SOUND BETTER BECAUSE HER VOICE IS FIT FOR THIS GENRE. BEYONCE SHOULD STAY IN HER REALM. THE LYRICS OF THE SONG ARE NICE THOUGH.

  • kim

    Both ho’s are played out!!!!!

  • So tired of the bull

    The song is lovely. Beyonce did a nice job, although Leona Lewis would’ve killed it just as well or better. Either way its not stealing MTO, she was given the song fair and square.

  • Jay

    Absolutely love the song….I am a Huge fan but I don’t like the fact Beyonce’ is going around saying how she has written all these songs or that they have came from her heart and soul….But on a positive note – i have the CD already and i must admit – it is fierce.

  • Jay

    lol….UMMM did i mention – the CD is fierce!!!!! Please go buy it…..

  • P2bplastic009

    Chile lies the writter and producer of the song … wanted Beyonce to have the song … because of her voice and ms lewis just didnt do it for him , people she does not steel her music she may stray away from the truth of her writting skills but thats about it ashe gives her credit and pays her clients for their services thank u its nothin major it wasnt her fault im sure lele would have killed but but Beyonce no need to to say anymore

  • HardCandy

    BEYowulf strikes again

  • purplechick

    Well in my book this is not stealing, NEXT!

  • Valenne

    hummm, no in this case, she did not steal nothing, she just was smarter! they should have bought the song instead of having the writer to keep it for leona come on now! I mean, its a BUSINESS!

    I am just waiting to see if beyonce can write anything cant she??? I dk, i THOUGH SHE WON THE LYRICIST OF THE YEAR AWARD OR SOMETHING!

    Anywaym in that case, she has nothing to blame herself for!!

  • Rock Witchu

    well damn, can she even put her name on the album? figures she steals from people who are hotter than her at the moment. she should have learned her lesson from last time she lied about writing a song, then neyo put her dumb ass on blast.

  • pm

    British black girls have lack soul in their voices let Bey have the song.

  • B-Nice

    Ok, this song is whack, I hope Solange is ready to stand up for this one, because everyone else will be sitting. If you gonna steal a song steal a good one.

  • beautiful b

    “Leona’s diary is so rammed it didn’t look like she could record it until next year. Ryan didn’t want to hang around so he gave it to Beyonce

    THATS CALLED BUSINESS!! BEY IS ON HER MONEY AND APPARENTLY SO IS THAT WRITTER, THATS HOW RHIANNA GOT UMBRELLA AND TAKE A BOW, OTHER ARTISTS WERE TOO BUSY OR TOO PICKY. THIS IS NOT NEW TO THE MUSIC WORLD, ONE MONKEY DONT STOP THE SHOW. NEXT…

  • JustfortheLULZ

    Lol. Actually read what the little paragraph says. She didn’t “steal” anything.

  • Valenne

    @ KEEP IT REAL

    there is nothing wrong with artist getting songs from writers. Actually, its the case for almost every body! But why did i hear beyonce saying that she wrote this album and that she wanted it to be personal and stuff when there is at least 2 songs that we know for sure that were not written by her! Why cant she just be honest! Whitney houston never claimed she wrote i will always love you or any of her big standards! she is just a singer and she don’t have a problem with that! Bey seems to have one! which i don’t understand! she can sing and perform, so what if she cant write, just be honest, you cant do anything or at least do it but don’t lie!

  • BEReal

    early bird gets the worm….next time Leona wants to record a song she will go and record it and stop playing around!

  • sarah

    I am not that big of a Beyonce fan but this song is beautiful….I hope she doesn’t mess the video up because she could do something really classic with this song.
