Sky Ferreira has taken to social media to berate her label for denying her access to her own Soundcloud account. On Instagram, she wrote: “I was forced/told I had no choice to hand over my account information to my label... They gave me the wrong information & changed it so I can no longer access it”.
“I need it back ASAP,” she went on, explaining that the label have no rights to her music or account: “I earned the hundreds of thousands of people that follow the account without my label & have never had help/paid for anything on social media or whatever”.
Since, she’s expanded on the issue on Twitter, telling followers, “It’s been like this the entire time I’ve started making music professionally (14 years old)” and wondering, “Why should I have to beg/snake charm people into getting a login to my account that I created & ask for permission for music I either own or made by myself?”.

It’s not the first time there’s been friction between Ferreira and her label, either. The singer has been due to release her second album, Masochism, for years – since 2015 – and in June she expressed her powerlessness in the situation, also through an Instagram post. She did provide some hope in that caption, though, suggesting the album is coming soon.
