In other news, Chipotle is calling Frank Ocean out. Back tracking just a taste, earlier this month Chipotle sued the singer claiming he signed on to record a song for their new marketing campaign. Ocean charged the food giant a whopping $425,000 to do it, in which he required half before he sang a single note. Needless to say, Chipotle complied and paid the singer $212,500 in advance, but Ocean never held up his end of the contract. The song was never finished supposedly because Ocean got angry when the company wanted to include its logo in the promotional ad.
Chipotle sued for the advance change, plus damages, once again rubbing Ocean the wrong way. Long story short Frank Ocean wrote Chipotle a check and pasted an alleged copy of it on his Twitter page, which included “F— off” in the memo.
Now Chipotle is responding, listen to Tha Wire below and find out what they had to say.
Finally, Keyshia Cole fans will be happy to know the songstress dropped not one, but two new singles this week. Cole teams up with Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J on the track “Rick James,” were she sings about a broken relationship and promising to “slap a b***h like Rick James.” Hours after the songs release, it had been listened to 86,848 times (and prompted countless jokes on Twitter about boots on couches).
Yesterday she dropped her second single “Next Time (Won’t Give My Heart Away),” another ballad about a relationship that’s run out of love. Listen to Tha Wire now and find out when Keyshia plans to drop her new album and more.
