UPDATE: Both artists have responded to the news…it seems as if they’ve already handled the issue quietly (which is great news if true). You can see the responses below.
TMZ is currently reporting that Frank Ocean and his team sent a cease and desist to Travis Scott in an effort to remove himself from the Astroworld cut “Carousel.” Here’s what’s allegedly taking place:
Frank is apparently upset that his vocals on the song were altered, which was preceded by disagreements between Frank and Travis over the collaboration in the weeks leading up to Astroworld‘s release. It’s also being reported that Travis has no plans on removing Frank’s part, meaning things could (legally) get ugly between the two parties.
Story is developing. One question, though: does Frank Ocean realize how much everybody else loves the song?
I THINK THE SONG SOUNDS COOL, I DID IT IN LIKE 20 MINUTES AND THE MIX SOUNDS THE WAY TRAVIS WANTED IT TO SOUND FOR HIS RECORD. I ALSO APPROVED IT BEFORE IT CAME OUT SO THE CEASE AND DESIST WASN’T ABOUT 🔊 IT WAS ABOUT 🏳️🌈. ME AND TRAVIS RESOLVED IT AMONGST OURSELVES WEEKS AGO. – From Frank Ocean’s Tumblr
