There is at least one person that is taking issue with the project. Electronic producer Rabit went on Instagram to suggest Drake’s cover art is a copy of his Collin Fletcher-designed “Communion Tour” poster from 2015.
Rabit wrote on IG:
today I wake up to see OVO has redone one of my 2015 tour posters designed by @collindfletcher for Drake’s new single. Poor Collin is always having his style stolen😬lol BUT I love being part of a team that’s so creative and iconic💕💕🐀😆#drake #ovo #rat #roach #simp – *Rabit – Les Fleurs Du Mail available now*
The social media post included a top-to-bottom comparison of the tour poster and the Scary Hours cover. This latest accusation follows other artists claiming Drake has stolen concepts/music for years, including XXXtentacion charging Drizzy’s “KMT” was a ripoff of his “Look At Me.”
“This is a story that too many artists, musicians, and designers identify with,” Fletcher told Pitchfork. “Hopefully this results in a larger conversation about popular culture’s relationship to underground artists.”
