SONG-STEALING JOHN NEWMAN BREAKS TIES WITH UMG
If you steal from Team Apps, we will find out. And when we do, we will come after you legally and very publicly. We now have safeguards in place, and the right lawyers, so we will never stop until we win.
We enjoy collaborating with other artists, and we love creating music, but if the corporations or the powers-that-be decide to ever again steal our music, we won’t care about their excuses. We will fight them at every turn. We exposed John Newman as a plagiarizing hack, who lacks the genuine talent Team Apps has consistently demonstrated year in and year out. So, it’s no surprise that Newman and Universal Music Group have parted ways.
Because of our lawsuit and everything we have done to expose Newman, we join a growing number of artists who won’t tolerate theft of our work. It is unmistakable that Newman’s song "Love Me Again" copied much of Alisa Apps' song "Need To Know", which was written years earlier. Check out our side-by-side comparisons and street interviews on YouTube to hear for yourself.
We have, and will continue to have, a great relationship with the fans and with the people, and we will keep Rising.
UMG tried to pacify Alisa Apps before, but they failed; and now John Newman is out for good. The fight will continue.
