Frank Ocean Sued Over "Lost" By Producer

by at . Comments

Frank Ocean is being sued. No, not by Chris Brown.

Producer Micah Otano claims he was deprived of credit for work on Ocean's hit "Lost," which was featured on his Grammy-winning album channel Orange.

Otano citeds breach of contract, fraud in the inducement, rescission and restitution, copyright infringement and declaratory relief in his suit against Ocean.

He insists he co-created the song upon which "Lost" is based and "solely performed the lead synthesizer parts on ‘Daylight' as well as piano and other parts."

The lawsuit further states that in joint ownership of the track, Otano and producer Malay (also named in the suit) agreed on co-producer credit for it.

Unfortunately, Otano says "Malay did just that, stealing Otano's performances, passing them off as his own, and using them on the Frank Ocean song."

Def Jam and Universal Music Group are also named in the lawsuit against Frank Ocean, one of the breakout hip-hop stars of 2012 and 2013.
