Roc Nation’s Bridget Kelly opened up on the “Thinking About You” record with Frank Ocean. After Nostaglia, Ultra dropped “Thinking About You” took off, then followed Bridget Kelly’s version. While some were left scratching their heads, Kelly cleared up the confusion with Mina SayWhat of 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… He wrote the record. 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… Frank Ocean is incredibly talented, but at the same time, he’s gonna do what he wants to do.”
