Frank Ocean allegedly unhappy with 'Astroworld' feature
In a new report from TMZ, it’s said that Frank Ocean has sent a Cease and Desist letter to Travis Scott over his feature on Scott’s latest release Astroworld.
Frank is featured on “Carousel,” track two of the Billboard topping album.
We're told Frank's PISSED because his vocals -- featured in the chorus and third verse -- were changed. It's unclear what changes were made. Frank's voice includes Auto-Tune ... and his pitch is noticeably higher in the third verse than in the chorus, but we just don't know what's got Frank so upset.
Here's what we do know -- Frank's rage has been so real he's been demanding Travis remove his part in the track, but to no avail. Our sources say lawyers are now involved. We're told Frank's legal team fired off a cease and desist to Travis' team to remove him from "Carousel" ... OR ELSE!
For his part, Travis hasn't flinched. We're told the rapper has ZERO plans to remove Frank from the track ... which has received critical acclaim from just about everyone.
Everyone except Frank Ocean.
Update 9/15: It appears this beef was dead before it was brought to the public eye. Frank has responded to reporting on the matter by way of his Tumblr account, verifying that the dispute was settled amongst themselves prior to TMZ’s report.
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. 💖
Travis Scott also jumped in to clear the air with an Instagram post depicting a Blonded World Tour tee next to an Astroworld towel.
