Ocean’s lawyers reportedly send Scott, 26, a cease and desist letter demanding his voice be removed from “Carousel,” a song the pair collaborated on for Scott’s album “Astroworld.”
According to TMZ, Ocean, 30, is upset his vocals were changed on the song, although it’s unclear how exactly his voice was changed. It’s speculated that they’ve auto-tuned his voice.
The gossip site says Scott has no plans to remove Ocean’s voice from the track.
With over 3.1 million plays on YouTube, “Carousel” is one of the most popular tracks on the “Astroworld” album. “Astroworld,” which came out in August, shot to number one on the Billboard 200 chart, outselling Nicki Minaj’s “Queen.” At the time, Minaj went on a Twitter tirade, saying that Scott’s album beat hers out because of the free promo he received from his baby mama Kylie Jenner.
Meanwhile, Scott is getting ready for his Astroworld Festival, a one-day music festival at NRG Park in Houston on Nov. 17.
