I'll never work with Joss Stone again, says producer

Music producer Novel has vowed never to work with singer Joss Stone again after a dispute over songwriting credits.

Music producer Novel has vowed never to work with singer Joss Stone again after a dispute over songwriting credits.

Novel, who has worked with Kelis and JC Chasez in the past, claims Stone reworked some of the songs they wrote together to ensure he received no credit on her third album 'Introducing Joss Stone'.

"She did a little bit of writing, but I wrote, produced, arranged, vocal arranged, did backgrounds," he said.

"I was never paid for the songs - I just get my publishing.

"Now she has this record with (producer) Raphael (Saadiq) and they changed some of the songs. I got no production credits, I didn't get paid, so let me at least get what's rightfully mine as a writer.

"She didn't want to do that. There's only so much you can take from one person. She talks in interviews and starts s**tting on everybody. It's wrong."

Stone's spokesperson was unavailable for comment.
