Frank Ocean Claps Back at Miguel

Frank Ocean Claps Back at Miguel

The "Channel Orange" singer retaliates in lyrics.

Published July 13, 2015

The R&B feud of the decade rages on. Days after Miguel issued a statement claiming he makes better music than Frank Ocean, the "Novacane" singer put his response into lyrics.

"You could stay seated, I'm taking that Grammy. Your music is sloppy. N****s is heated they keep on repeating the evening in slow mo," Ocean wrote — referencing, of course, Miguel's now-infamous 2013 Grammys diss — among song lyrics he posted to his Tumblr page.

“I wouldn’t say we were friends. To be completely honest — and no disrespect to anyone — I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around," Miguel told the Sunday Times last weekend. After a Twitter response that rivaled the swarm of the Beyhive, the "Adorn" singer took to Instagram to backpedal — sort of. 

“Yes, I am competitive, we ALL have to have a level of competitiveness to put ourselves on the line day in and day out,” he wrote. “But I also believe there’s room for all artists.”

Perhaps this R&B diss track will be a part of Ocean's forthcoming album?
