Pixie Lott really had to fight hard to release her new single.
It wasn't her record label putting the project on hold that was the problem, but rather the numerous samples in her upcoming single 'Nasty', she tells Digital Spy in the video interview below.
The track was originally recorded by Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green for 2010 movie Burlesque, but they abandoned the song after facing legal issues.
However, that didn't deter Lott when she was given the opportunity to re-record the cut for her upcoming self-titled album, and her team were finally successful in clearing all of the song's samples.
'Nasty' will be released in the UK on March 9 and new album Pixie Lott will follow later in the year.
