the main problem is that obviously nothing was done the way it should have been. first off, the fact the artist is claiming 100% writers is wrong. he should be getting 50%. he also should have been paid a production fee for the track. at that point, the record company would own the recording (not the song), and he would have no rights to distribute it anywhere. there would probably also be a clause in there that he couldn’t reproduce a different or cover version of the song for a certain period, typically 5 years….but since none of this was handled, it’s a mess. agreed the singer seems most likely at fault.
It’s probably a good idea to not say a word in this forum ever again! At first you write “I agreed”, then you say “I also did not give her the rights…”
I suggest, first, contact her directly and explain the situation. Also, I don’t know what you agreed for and what was your deal with her?
It was a strange agreement (not typical and un-proffesional), which only claim, that i allows to use these tracks in certain album.. no other rights or obligations from me..
Keep your cool and try and maintain an amicable relationship with the singer.
I can’t contact her at the moment..I like her as an artist and I hope that this situation will be resolved.

“Can I use an AJ track in a stand-alone music track? What about sound effects? You may not use music in stand-alone music tracks, but you could use sound effects in a music track. Example: You can’t add lyrics to an audio track and sell it on iTunes”
Yes, it’s right, because AJ license really don’t allows to use a track as a song.. But author can give this permission, i believe..

I asked him, he said why not, so, explain him all the fact…. I’ve you his mail through your profile !
Thank you so much, Steve!
Isn’t it against AJ policy to let others add vocals to AJ tracks?
Why not? I think, the song with vocals and just a track – these are totally different objects..
Add the songs she used to AdRev! That’ll get her attention
Already done:) Zero attention..

if you are interested in, i’ve got a very good friend who is lawyer specialist in copy rights, he work in big law agency in Paris, and he is a master! Tell me, i’ll give you the contact!
Steve, thank you so much for proposition! I really need such a person now, based in France.. Please, send me his contact..
Have you kept records of her asking for your permission? Are the tracks still on AJ?
Yes, i found these letters, this is was a girl from USA company, which had planned to release an album. Tracks are still on AJ..
Also were you compensated well enough for these songs? or did she just buy a standard license of AJ, sang over those and then claimed the whole production?
They paid some extra money for me.. in the contract mentioned only the release of the album, and I did not knew that it is Jeanne Mas album..
First thing to do, contact Jeanne Mas directly if you can. Maybe by her YT channel. Explain the situation, it’s always possible to manage the issue by talking each other. And i’m pretty sure she’s aware that she’s not allowed to do such a thing…
I really tried, but i can’t contact directly with her.. I’ve had a reply from company, which released the album and they don’t see any problems in this situation..
Be careful with Jeanne Mas, she is.. special
Hmm, what you mean?:) Personally i’ve listened her top songs and i like them:)

Thank you all for your help!

Hi guys! An interesting story happened recently with my AJ tracks.. 4 years ago I was contacted by a girl asking for permission to write songs and release an album with 5 my AJ tracks.. Some “girl” wanted to sang these songs in French.. I agreed .. I also helped to add vocal in arrangements, although I did not planned to make a songs, so the quality leaves much to be desired.. I have done this work and forgot .. So a week ago I accidentally learned that this “girl” – a French pop star Eighties – Jeanne Mas..Here one of her famous songs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMuOLH-oQKs

She recorded an album ’’Bleu Citron” in 2011 with the 5 songs based on my arrangements.. I also learned that she sings a few songs with my tunes on live concerts with live musicians.. But she registered all the rights to the songs in her name .. Although it seems to me that I am a full-fledged co-author on the music.. I also did not give her the rights to carry out my tunes .. Here is her amateur clip with my AJ track:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfWRxVS_SHY

Here she sings this song with my piano melody and harmony at a concert in Paris theater with live musicians:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3JIOfpWBXM

What do you advise me? She don’t go to contact and she believed that only she is the author of songs ..
