Burna Boy blasts Ex-Label for allegedly leaking song

   Over the weekend, a new song by Nigerian dancehall singer Burna Boy hit the Internet, called ‘Rock Star.’ Set to a simple acoustic guitar hook, the laid-back Leriq-produced tune’s appearance prompted the artist to slam the leak as sabotage by his former label, Aristokrat Records.

   According to Burna Boy’s posts on social media, the song has already been chosen as his next single (he says he just shot the accompanying video) and Aristokrat is attempting to sabotage the track’s success by releasing an early, unfinished version of the song online.Burna Boy, who left Aristokrat in 2013 after his successful debut album, L.I.F.E., claims that the version of the song that’s available online right now is the “weak skeleton” of the finished song, and promises that the “actual” version is coming soon. 
Here’s are Burna’s tweets about the issue:
Everyone please ignore the leak of my single “RockStar”. That is the weak skeleton of the actual song to be released later today. Thanks

We all know who’s responsible for leaking my shit. I don’t wanna bring it to social media, but this time they will pay.

Please stop promoting the cheap effort of Aristokrat Records to sabotage the release of my new single titled “RockStar”— #Check$ Balance (@burnaboy) January 10, 2015
The original “RockStar” drops with the Video soon, and it sounds nothing like d 1 u see on blogs right now . #anticipate

It’s also worth noting that Leriq, who’s credited with producing the leaked version of ‘Rock Star’, is an in-house producer at Aristokrat, so it’s likely that the new version will sound at least a bit different than this one. Stay tuned for more, including Burna Boy’s version of ‘Rock Star.’ In the meantime, you can sample the leaked version of the song below
