Frank Ocean facing lawsuit over song

Los Angeles - Frank Ocean is being sued over his track Lost.

The singer, his record label Def Jam, and producer are being sued by songwriter Micah Otano, who claims the song is too similar to his composition Daylight.

Micah filed a lawsuit in California last week, seeking compensation for back royalties and damages. In the suit he claims he wrote the track Daylight with his producer, which Frank's producer then copied for Lost.

The track was the fourth single from Frank's breakthrough Channel Orange debut album in the US, which was won a Grammy Award for Best Urban Contemporary Album earlier this year.

'Bordering on a concept'

Frank has also recently said he is hard at work on the follow up to his highly acclaimed debut and already has a concept and a number of songs ready.

"I'm 10, 11 songs into this next thing. It's another cohesive thing bordering on a concept album again. At the end of Channel Orange there's Golden Girl and I kind of want to extend that feeling into the next record," he recently said.

For his second album Frank is believed to be working with producer Pharrell Williams and rapper Tyler, The Creator among others.
