Jacquees confirmed that the song had been pulled from YouTube and SoundCloud in a tweet posted on September 25. In a response to T-Pain, Jacquees denied that there was any bad blood between him and Ella Mai.
Fans began to blame Ella Mai for the song's disappearance, and on Wednesday afternoon, Mustard posted a statement on Twitter claiming responsibility for the decision to axe Jacquees's remix. "When you monetize content you don't own you are stealing and no one steals from 10 Summers," Mustard wrote, adding "Ella's career started by doing covers and we support all her fans and fellow artists doing the same."
Read Mustard's statement below. Ella Mai's self-titled debut album is out October 12.
The FADER has reached out to Jacquees's representatives for comment.
