Frank Ocean and Travis Scott settle dispute over Ocean’s vocals on Astroworld


Josh Brasted/WireImageA dispute between Frank Ocean and Travis Scott over Ocean’s vocals on Scott’s new album Astroworld has been settled.

It was reported by TMZ that Ocean was not pleased with changes in his recorded vocals, prompting his lawyers to send a cease and desist order to Scott demanding that his part on the song “Carousel” be removed.

Now Ocean has announced that he actually approved the mix, and he has resolved the situation with the Houston rapper.

“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,” the Grammy Award-winner wrote on Tumbler.

“The cease and desist wasn’t about [sound emoji], it was about [rainbow flag emoji],” he added. “Me and Travis resolved it amongst ourselves weeks ago.”

It is speculated that because Ocean posted a rainbow flag emoji, the true dispute was over LGBTQ issues.

Travis showed love to Frank with an Instagram post featuring an Ocean T-shirt along with his own merchandise. He wrote, “Someone I call family and always will. Has taught me a ton. And a true inspiration.”
