Leona Lewis

has recently dropped a fresh dance track called "Collide", but the release was marred with accusation that the song was a rip-off. It was reported that the new single was a copy of another up-beat track called "Penguin" by up-and-coming Swedish DJ Avicii aka Tim Berg.

"Collide" is produced by Sandy Vee and written by Autumn Rowe. Fuming over the plagiarism allegation, Sandy wrote on his Twitter to slam those spreading the rumor. "Talk only if you know what u r talking about....if not shut up. FYI , check the credits, u will find Tim Berg, Autumn and I," he tweeted.

The copycat rumor was first run exclusively by Digital Spy. "Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Scott Mills have been playing 'Penguin' for months now, but this week we've realized and Leona Lewis have stolen our record. 'Collide' is identical to Avicii's track!" a source told the publication.

While Sandy has already responded to the plagiarism rumor, Leona herself still kept silent. Instead of throwing a rant, the former "" winner focused on those being supportive. "Sending everyone love and big bunny hugs! Thank u for all the support and love on here! Hope u enjoy #collide let the summer fun begin! xxx," she wrote.
