The AI Drake Ghostwriter is reportedly back with a new song and is chasing a Grammy. The creator that is behind the AI-generated Drake song has now released a new track that reportedly features the voices of 21 Savage and Travis Scott.
AI Drake Ghostwriter Is Back
Ghostwriter, who in case you don’t know is the anonymous creator that is behind the viral AI Drake song, has now released another track, and this time around, it reportedly features the AI-generated voices of Travis Scott and 21 Savage. In a song titled “Whiplash” that was posted to TikTok, Ghostwriter left a note for the two artists at the very end.
“The future of music is here. Artists now have the ability to let their voice work for them without lifting a finger,” Ghostwriter’s message reads. “It’s clear that people want this song. DM me on Instagram if you’re interested in allowing me to release this record or if you’d like me to remove this post.” Ghostwriter also adds that if Travis Scott and 21 Savage let the release of the song, Ghostwriter will direct royalties to them.
Copyright Questions SurroundingGhostwriter
Ghostwriter in the early parts of this year raised serious copyright questions with the release of an AI-generated Drake song, “Heart on My Sleeve,” which began gaining traction on Spotify, Apple Music, and many other streaming services before its ultimate removal. And while music labels clearly are not fans of AI-generated soundtracks, the legal implications that surround AI likenesses are murky and put therefore platforms such as YouTube in a really awkward position when it comes to fair usage.
Ghostwriter Is Submitting “Heart on My Sleeve” For a Grammy
And alongside dropping a new AI-generated single, The New York Times reports that Ghostwriter is also reportedly submitting “Heart on My Sleeve” for a Grammy in two categories which are for best rap song and song of the year, and it just might actually have a shot at qualifying. The CEO of the Recording Academy (which is responsible for the Grammys), Harvey Mason Jr., tells the NYT that “as far as the creative side, it’s absolutely eligible because it was written by a human.”
How “Heart on My Sleeve” Can Qualify For a Grammy
However, “Heart on My Sleeve” on the other hand still has to meet “general distribution” standards that require availability in physical stores all over the region, online retailers, or streaming services, which is something a song that faces copyright issues might get to struggle with.
