Asher Roth Changes Title of Sophomore LP Due to Frank Ocean’s ‘channel ORANGE’
Due to Frank Ocean's recent releasing of his album channel ORANGE, Asher Roth has subsequently scrapped the original title of his sophomore effort. Roth's LP was initially slated to be called Is This Too Orange?, but out of respect for the singer-songwriter and to present a truly unique and original body of work, the PA rapper will name the project something else. In a recent interview with KarmaloopTV, Ash had this to say:
"Yeah, it’s tough. Obviously, the initial title of the album was Is This Too Orange? and out of respect for Frank [Ocean], and the project that he put together, he kind of beat me to the punch. So whatever, whatever," he said. "I just want to make sure that we have an original idea. I don’t want any connotation or any comparisons or anything like that, simply off of a name. We might have to start fresh from a namesake, might have the fans name it. We’ll see what’s up."
Stay tuned for more on Asher's forthcoming album.
