No Boundaries is the second studio album by the Belarusian-Norwegian artist Alexander Rybak, released on the 14 June 2010.

Background[edit]

It was recorded in Yla Studios in Malmö. The album include three songs dedicated to his workmates: Oah, Why Not Me and First Kiss. It also has a tribute to Finland, "Suomi". "5000 Letters" seemingly reflects the letters received from his fans. Another spoken track, "Kaja's Letter" is a letter he finds special from a small Norwegian girl named Kaja.

Plagiarism[edit]

RIA Novosti[2] accused Alexander of plagiarizing Konstantin Meladze's music (which has already been used in Valery Meladze's song "Kak ty krasiva segodnya" on YouTube) and using it in his song "5000 Letters". Some other sources, as RIA Novosti says, have already revealed that the music was not written by Alexander Rybak himself and there was no act of plagiarism.
