Chipotle is suing Frank Ocean for backing out of a $425,000 deal to sing a remake of “Pure Imagination” for an animated Chipotle ad.

As TMZ reports, Ocean didn’t want Chipotle’s logo to appear at the end of the advertisement, so when company reps showed him a final cut that displayed the logo prominently, he violated his agreement to record the track. Chipotle claims to have received an email from Ocean’s camp claiming that the singer believed he had a final say over the recorded material and its use.

As previously reported, Fiona Apple recorded “Pure Imagination” when Frank Ocean backed out of the deal.

Chipotle is suing Ocean for his $212,500 advance, and no efforts to make guacamole cheaper have been emphasized.
