Bridget Kelly Clears Up "Thinking About You" Confusion: "[Frank Ocean] Actually Demoed My Song”
If you’ve heard Bridget Kelly’s “Thinking About Forever” on her Every Girl EP, then you’ve probably thought to yourself, “Hey, isn’t that Frank Ocean’s song?!”
According to Rap-Up, while Frank did release his “Thinking About You” just a day before BK released hers, he originally wrote it for the Roc Nation singer’s EP.
Bridget cleared the water on SiriusXM:
“We called Frank in to write a song for me and that was what came out of it. Of course it’s an amazing record, so everyone fell in love with it right away, myself included. I think at some point in the process of us putting the EP together, he just decided he was gonna put his version out.”
But is she mad? Not at all.
“He wrote the record,” she said. “He had his vocals so he can pretty much do whatever he wants. I think the unfortunate thing is that everyone then saw it as Frank’s record so when mine came out, it was kinda like, wait a minute, she’s covering Frank Ocean’s song. And it was like, not really. Your boy actually demoed my song.”
Only time will tell, but with Frank just releasing a radio version, it may be safe to assume the cut will be on his upcoming album.
