UPDATE: Both artists have since responded to the claim, revealing that the cease and desist is no longer valid. ”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 [music emoji] IT WAS ABOUT [rainbow flag emoji] ME AND TRAVIS RESOLVED IT AMONGST OURSELVES WEEKS AGO [heart emoji],” Frank wrote on his Tumblr, and Travis responded by uploading an image to Instagram calling Ocean “family.”
Travis Scott dropped his praised album Astroworld earlier this year, quickly climbing to the top of all charts. The highly anticipated album was well-received by both fans and critics, but now it is looking like one of the album’s featured artists, Frank Ocean, has something to say.
The Blonde singer featured on Travis’ track “Carousel,” and is now reportedly asking the rapper to take the track off the album. According to TMZ, Ocean’s vocals in the song have been altered with Auto-Tune and pitch shifting, and the star’s lawyers have hitt Scott with a cease and desist warming.
It remains to see whether Travis Scott will remove the track from the album, but while we wait, take a listen to the song in question below.
