A spanner may have been thrown in Frank Ocean‘s creative works.
Find out why the ‘Solo‘ crooner has been slapped with copycat claims today below…
The star’s sophomore set ‘Blond’ was released to the world yesterday evening four years after the unveiling of his debut LP ‘Channel Orange.’
Alas, as Frank’s fans made their way to Apple Music to enjoy the release, fans of the up and coming artist TrapCry made their way to Instagram to point out something they believed was deeply problematic.
What it was?
Citing similarities between the album’s title, artwork, hair colour and pose as their cause for concern, Trap’s supporters received the following message from the artist after he caught wind of ‘Blond’s release.
Ocean is yet to respond to claims he sourced his concept from his peer, but did have this to say about his LP’s journey.
I had the time of my life making all of this,. Thank you all. especially those of you who never let me forget I had to finish. which is basically every one of ya’ll. haha. love you.
Two years ago I found an image of a kid with her hands covering her face.A seatbelt reached across her torso, riding up her neck and a mop of blonde hair stayed swept, for the moment, behind her ears. Her eyes seemed clear and calm but not blank, the road behind her seemed the same. I put myself in her seat then I played it all out in my head.
