Just yesterday, Tyler, The Creator released his highly-anticipated album Flower Boy, originally thought to be named Scum F*ck Flower Boy. However, when the album leaked weeks prior, the lyrics to the track “Garden Shed” were in question. With the lines, “Truth is, since a youth kid, thought it was a phase/Thought it’d be like the Frank; poof, gone/But it’s still goin’ on,” everyone believed this was a connection to Frank Ocean and that Tyler had stepped out of the proverbial closet.
But it turns out the lyrics were just misheard. Taking to Twitter, Tyler, The Creator addressed the situation and let everyone know they were in fact mistaken. The actual words are “the phrase,” not “the Frank.” Check out his tweet below, and if you haven’t had time to listen to the new album, you can stream Flower Boy now.
and its ” thought it’d be like the phrase ‘poof’; gone” get the lyrics right before going crazy
