22-year-old Malik’s producer friend Naughty Boy, however, claimed Righteous stole the unfinished song, reported Mettro. “Just wait for the real one… you won’t be disappointed,” tweeted Boy.
Righteous hit back and insisted he had not “stolen” the track. “Tell the truth shah. We recorded them bars in ur studio months ago… Bout ‘stolen hard drive’,(sic)” he said.
The song was taken down but Righteous later re-uploaded it, insisting he does not have to “keep the label happy” and was making the song public for Malik’s sake as he isn’t allowed to release music for two years.
