Paul Anka

I've Got No Beef with Jay-Z

3/31/2013 5:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

033113_paul_anka_launchMega music producer Paul Anka was a little peeved Jay-Z blew off his offer to collaborate on a song, but is adamant there is no bad blood between the two, telling TMZ that he think Jay is a great guy.

When we bumped into Paul earlier this week, he told us he reached out to Jay to do a track on his upcoming album "Duets," but the rapper never called him back ... which left him a little ticked off.

But when we ran into Paul in Beverly Hills last night, he downplayed the whole ordeal and told our photog he doesn't feel Jay-Z has to apologize for anything.

Anka's album, which features Dolly Parton, Celine Dion, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson and not Jay-Z is due out next month,

I don't see why Anka would have to complain to a photographer from TMZ about someone not calling him. I would say with that situation directly with the people involved. JZ didn't answer and Paul moved on with his project, jZ's loss. Paul never complained about anything, he was coming out of a restaurant, and a photographer from TMZ asked him a question and he answered honestly. Some commenters that are in only they know on what kind of speed, made a big snowball out if it and kept it running.
