Skylar Grey Found A Bizarre Way To Finish The Accusations Against Her New Single’s Cover

Skylar Grey Found A Bizarre Way To Finish The Accusations Against Her New Single’s Cover

Holly Brook Hafermann, known as Skylar Grey, recently introduced her new song “Make It Through The Day” with a cover photo, but she came across many different reactions than she expected and voiced her protest on her Instagram account.

Skylar Grey dropped a new song on every Friday of October, and her last track was called “Make It Through The Day.” She shared the news with a cover photo in which she was in a very aristocratic atmosphere posing from inside a gold frame, and red inscriptions were also observed in the background. Followers gave different feedback for this photo and some accused the singer of copying the cover idea from rapper named Sfera Ebbasta.

On Wednesday, Skylar Grey wrote a long and revealing message about the truth on all these accusations. She did not know the artist they mentioned, and never copied him, and that Beethoven was the person she was inspired from. Both of the images have a gold frame and red graffiti-style writing.

Furthermore, Grey described the similarity as a universal consciousness and explained that she wanted to make a modern version of an old oil painting from Beethoven’s era, as her song itself was a modern take on classical music.

Despite all these very clear statements, reactions continued to come to Skylar Grey and she asked her followers, ‘Why so much hate was happening?’ She once again stated that she didn’t copy the cover swearing on her life, but trying to persuade some people on social media is just a futile effort.

Still, the artist named Sfera Ebbasta showed that nobody was stealing ideas by writing a friendly comment under Grey’s post.

Here’s what she stated:

“Just want to clear the air here: It was a big shock to me when people started saying that I copied @sferaebbasta’s Famoso artwork… I’ve never heard of him, let alone seen the artwork people are referring to. But now seeing it, I cannot deny the fact that they are spookily similar with the gold frame and the red graffiti style writing. To me this is just evidence of some kind of universal consciousness.

If I had copied it, I would tell you… just like when I openly paid tribute to Travis Scott earlier this year in a set of photographs. In truth, my inspiration for this cover was Beethoven. I wanted to do a modern take on him, and a modern take on an old oil painting from his era, as the song itself is a modern take on classical music.

I’ve had this concept for months, and the photo shoot for this cover happened on Sept 11th, 2020 then we re-shot it on Sept 17th because I didn’t like my hair in the photos lol. (I just checked my archives). According to @sferaebbasta’s Instagram page he revealed his cover on Oct 13th.

So there’s no explanation other than, we both had the same idea at around the same time. It happens. I’m glad this happened though because it led to me discovering @sferaebbasta who seems like a super dope artist! 🖤”
