Digital hackers have reportedly stolen the King of Pop’s entire back catalog, including unreleased tracks featuring Queen’s lead singer, Freddy Mercury, and hip-hop star, Will.I.Am. The crooks illegally downloaded over 50,000 digital files worth a reported $160 million.
In 2010, Sony Music paid $250 million to Jackson’s estate for his unheard material from studio sessions, when the pop icon recorded Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad. The deal allowed Sony to release 10 new Jackson albums in years to come.
The attack on Jackson’s music reportedly happened months ago, but Sony has remained quiet until now.
A source told The Sun, “Everything Sony purchased from the Michael Jackson estate was compromised.”
The breach in the security of Jackson’s files was discovered during a routine monitoring of social networking sites, Jackson fan sites, and hacking forums.
Not just Jackson’s work was compromised during the security scandal; unreleased music from Jimi Hendrix, Paul Simon, the Foo Fighters and Avril Lavigne was also hit.
This is not the first time Sony has fallen victim to hacking. In April 2011, the company suffered an enormous security breach where the information of more 77 million Sony PlayStation users was exposed.
Because the second breach happened so soon after the first Sony was reluctant to tell the public and sources within the company said they did not have to because there was no customer data involved.
They added that computer experts had traced the hack to the UK by examining a “fingerprint” allegedly left behind.
The Serious Organized Crime division took up the case and two men appeared in court last week charged with offences under the computer Misuse Act.
They denied all charges and were remanded on bail.
A lot of fun! It consists of upbeat songs that you would here in top nightclubs around the U.S. The stuff Dj’s love to play and remix in the clubs. I wanted to do a more Top 40 mainstream feel. I wanted to add a kind of fantasy element to some of the tracks as well. Futuristic in a kind of ”Final Fantasy” way. I think we need new music for the new generation. Music has definitely changed; it’s now very enhanced because of technology. Now kids are very savvy and have the hottest gadgets and know how to use them. They want more online, video games and music. I hope to (make them happy and) give them this.
The first single, which is now available on iTunes, is title “Oh La La” what made you chose this song as your first release? What does it say to your fans?
We chose the “Ooh La La” song because it’s sexy and fun! We got many different responses as to what it reminded them of. Some said it sounded soulful others said trance and even others referred it to the new “Dev” song. I think guys and girls can relate to being in a situation when your at a club and first meeting that one person who turns you on. Lust, attraction, longing feelings of excitement when someone just does it for you. This makes you wanna…
It says you can go out and have fun and flirt and be sexy and turn someone on and that it’s perfectly ok. Especially for a young woman.
You first began your career with a role on VH1’s reality series “Flavor of Love”, what was that like? (character ‘smokey’)
It was a great experience.I was new to L.A.Got lucky right away after seeing a casting call for an untitled t.v. show with an undisclosed celebrity attached.It was “Flavor of Love” with hip-hop artist Flavor Flav.I never guessed that would start my career off but i am thankful i got that opportunity.Which has opened doors.
When did you realize that singing was your true passion?
I started singing right from the beginning so it was always my passion.Involved in choir and singing competitions and musicals.At 9 i got the musical “Annie”and this is when i got serious.For a 9 year old Hahaha!I think after being on a few t.v. shows i realized music is the right fit and my true passion.
