This isn’t your typical “recently successful artist slapped with copyright infringement lawsuit” type story.
R&B wunderkind Frank Ocean and his frequent producer/collaborator Malay have been named in a lawsuit over “Lost”, the eleventh track and most recently single released from Ocean’s channel ORANGE. Island Def Jam and Universal music were also listed as defendants in the suit.
The suit against Ocean and Malay (real name James Ryan Ho) is being brought by producer and songwriter Micah Otano, who alleges that “Lost” is essentially a copy of his own composition, “Daylight”. Otano also states that Malay took complete production credit …
At the beginning of the month, the band released an album called Orange (buy it). Fittingly, singer Justin Gilman covered the single from Ocean’s album Channel Orange, “Thinkin Bout You.”
You can watch the acoustic video of the cover after the break.
Frank Ocean had an interesting night at the Grammy Awards this month. While the R&B singer took home several awards, he also walked away with a not-so-hot performance of “Forrest Gump.”
The artist claims that his ear piece was not functioning correctly and that led him to being slightly off-key. We, of course, have to take that with a grain of salt. However, all of his television performances thus far have been on-point, so there’s likely some truth to that.
Regardless of how he performed on stage that night, Frank Ocean proves time and time again that theatrics and pyrotechnics …

Frank Ocean Is About, “10, 11 Songs” Into His ‘Channel Orange’ Follow Up And Other Takeaways From His BBC Radio 1 Interview
Do you have 30 minutes for Frank Ocean?
The R&B singer-songwriter recently sat down with Zane Lowe at BBC Radio 1 to dish about all things Ocean. Seeing as how busy Ocean has been over the last couple weeks and months, they had a lot to talk about.
The first topic to come up, of course, was Ocean’s success and experience at the Grammys (“It was quite the roller coaster ..it was a pretty funny moment on stage with me, Jay[-Z], and [The-]Dream…”). But the interview ran the gamut, even touching on Ocean’s follow-up to his highly touted …
The 2013 Grammy Awards aired last night on television, and now those of us not willing to kill four hours with ego and glitter can read up on all the shenanigans thanks to countless blogs and news blurbs. We may run a few stories on various performances or behind-the-scenes moments as the day carries on, but for now we’re sticking to what is really important (the winners).
In the weeks leading up to last night it seemed like 2013 was going to be the year younger acts truly dominated the awards season. Frank Ocean and fun. were highlights going in, …
According to reports on TMZ, someone allegedly called Frank Ocean a f***ot during his recent brawl with Chris Brown. He’s not quite sure who it was (or maybe he does and just doesn’t want to call them out). TMZ has indicated that they have a copy of the incident report which states that the name calling took place sometime during the fight between the two men.
Also, Brown allegedly threatened Ocean by saying “We can bust on you too” which apparently means he could use firearms if necessary. Nonetheless, Ocean is standing firm on his decision not to press …
Does Kanye West Have A New Album Coming Out Called ‘Rich Black American’ And Is This The Track List?
Kanye West works in mysterious ways.
Much of the talk on the famed rapper cum producer has been most recently focused on his and Kim K’s spawn or the possibly happening maybe not likely definitely potentially to be released followup to G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer.
Last night, his solo career was pulled off the media’s back burner and is now front and center in the minds of the bloggerati. See that image to the left? It would appear to be a screenshot of the iTunes store for a heretofore unmentioned Kanye West album titled Rich Black American. Seven …
Waxing philosophic on aggression and compassion, Ocean wrote that he would, “choose sanity” over the prospect of retribution against Brown for his alleged assault last week on Ocean in the parking lot of a recording studio.
Check out the full statement from Ocean after the jump.
Saying Chris Brown‘s name sort of leaves this odd taste in your mouth. Even if you’re slinging mud, you’re still touching mud… and that’s just dirty.
Moving along, here’s a round-up of what we’ve recently come to find since yesterday’s reports. Included are reports of the reasons for the fight, reports on the absence of a fight altogether, how serious Ocean is on handling the matter, and Brown’s recent public reference on the ordeal.
Sources say that Brown was attempting to leave the studio where he had been working with an artist he recently signed when Ocean and his crew blocked Brown from leaving. Ocean was reportedly quoted as saying, “This is my studio, this is my parking spot.”
From there, Brown is said to have went to shake Ocean’s hand when one of Ocean’s crew attacked the “Wake Me Up” star. That’s when a member …
