On Friday, a song titled “Final Hour” by AraabMuzik and Kelela was released by Gustavo Guerra of Distrolord. Set to appear on AraabMuzik’s upcoming LP Dream World, it appears that both artists denounced the song and accused Guerra of leaking their music. Kelela claims that the song is an unfinished demo and that she was not aware that it would appear on the record. Araab also accused Guerra of leaking the song and states that Dream World — originally slated for a June release — would not be dropped (he retracts this claim afterwards). Read the tweets, as well as an official press release via AraabMuzik’s Facebook page below.

Let’s clear the air …
Providence, RI—Araabmuzik, LLC would like to officially announce that Araab himself or anyone affiliated with his current TEAM had nothing to do with the release of “Final Hour” ft. Kelela. This song was released by someone affiliated with his previous management without our consent or knowledge. We would like to apologize for the confusion and set the record straight. He is currently working on numerous projects and will be giving his new music away to make up for the delayed release of Dreamworld. Dreamworld will now have a release date of January 29th under new Management. We would like the public to know that he has been working hard to bring you new music done the right way. He will be dropping his first single “King” on November 6, 2015 and two free EP’s, on December 4, 2015. We are working diligently on rectifying the problem and again apologize for any confusion this may have caused. Araabmuzik and staff wish Kelela nothing but chart topping success.
