Leona Lewis / Avicii
This song really was a collision. Originally an instrumental track by Avicii called “Penguin,” and later made into a vocal track called “Fade Into Darkness,” Leona Lewis recorded her own vocals to the track, claiming that the instrumental had been sent to her to “work on.” Avicii claimed no knowledge of this and sued Leona and her label but eventually settled after Leona’s camp conceded to credit both artists on the track as a “collaboration.” The result of this debacle is actually rather nice. Leona’s first real dance single shows she can do more than just power ballads and can move a dance floor as well. Remixes provided by Afrojack, Alex Gaudino & Jason Rooney, Cahill and Nay Ray … not surprisingly no mix by Avicii.
