View Full Version : Eamon vs. Frankee: Reality or Publicity Stunt?

May 1st, 2004, 11:17 PM
Everyone (I'm assuming) as heard Eamon's "Fuck It, I don't Want You Back" Song.

It's not that bad. And I got his CD as a gift, and it's not that bad.

But then, Eamon's supposed ex, Frankee, comes out with "Fuck You Right Back"...the song is a carbon copy of Eamon's, but with obviously different lyrics.

So, was this all a publicity stunt?

Well apparantly he was on TV saying they never even dated :confused:

Ah, so it could be a way for her to try to get a jump on her career

oh, to the tour? No. I don't like playing with risk shots, or any chessy unrealistic play. The friends I have, we don't use risk shots...we don't rush the net, we play how our players play in real life. We get to see any replays we want. It's just great.

publicity stunt!!:rolleyes:

May 2nd, 2004, 02:50 AM
No, I heard that she never claimed they dated and neither of them knows each other...she just wanted the female side of the song to be heard. And I do like both versions. I think they are funny!

No more of a publicity stunt than the lyrics of the original song itself.

Someone was bound to record a female reply to him sooner or later, good on that Frankee woman for cashing in on it.

May 2nd, 2004, 10:08 PM
does anyone know how tall he is? I mean he seems to be approaching a Prince-like height. Just wondering?

Maybe it was Frankee ;).

May 2nd, 2004, 10:14 PM
I think it's a big publicity stunt.. i mean, isn't Eamon like 19? And I am sure Frankee is around the same age.. they are HARDLY old enough to know the difference between good and bad sex. :P

Sure it's a publicity stunt but it is a good one! :yeah: ;)

I heard that he gets 80% of the profits from her song.......and its definately publicity, they never dated, he doesnt even know who she is lol but he's cashing in from her apparently!

May 3rd, 2004, 12:05 AM
Eamon sounds like Prince on crack. Dude really needs to cut the fake ass falsetto out.:rolleyes:

He'd have to, I think. I think he wrote the first song, and since hers is a carbon copy, he'd have to get some cash. But 80% :eek:

May 3rd, 2004, 01:40 AM
This is as bad as William Hung, none of them can sing and are making millions for it... :rolleyes:

May 3rd, 2004, 09:26 PM
definite publicity stunt, but i like Frankee's version :)

nearly crashed the car laughing when she sang - You thought you could really make me moan, I had better sex all alone! :haha: :lol:

Lol I know Frankee's lyrics are soo funny way better than Eamon's even though i really like his song too.
Girls 1 Boys 0 :yeah:

I think both songs are good, she has the better voice, but his song is better produced. I mean I dont know it was only a rumour that she was his ex, so i dont know, and neither party has confirmed it. But yeah I think its a publicity stunt for both partys, and its not the first time its been done either. Strings got a lot of interest when she did the Tongue SOng (a female version of the Thong Song) and althought it was never released as a single it did get loads of airplay and MTV play. Im sure there ahve been others as well. Ill jsut ahve to think.

May 3rd, 2004, 10:31 PM
Frankee's version is really funny. (my girlfriend likes the song a bit too much :p :help: )
I thought she really was his ex, but whatever its worked im sure the cash is overflowing for both of them, fair play.

Eamon's Alleged Old Flame Burns Him With Dis Track

http://www.mtv.com/sitewide/images/spacer.gifEamon has rocketed up the charts with a song about his ex-girlfriend called "F--- It (I Don't Want You Back)," and now a woman who claims to be the subject of the track has retaliated with her own song: "FU Right Back."

The song adds new lyrics to the beats and melody of the Staten Island, New York, singer's hit, dissing the "ho-wop" crooner with lines like "You thought you could really make me moan/ I had better sex all alone" and "Now you want me to come back/ You must be smoking crack/ I'm going elsewhere, and that's a fact."

Eamon's chorus of "F--- you, you ho/ I don't want you back" is alternately replaced with "Well, guess what, yo?/ F--- you right back" and "Well, guess what, yo?/ Your sex was wack."

New York radio station Z100 received the track anonymously in the mail and began playing it on February 24. Almost immediately, the request lines started lighting up, and the station has been playing the cut almost as much as Eamon's original.

A woman named Frankee (and people claiming to be her aunt and her cousins) called the station to say that she recorded the track and is, indeed, Eamon's ex, but Eamon himself said there's no truth to the claim. "I don't know who that girl is. I don't know who she is. I never met this girl in my life. The song is wack. The sh-- is mad wack," he told the radio station. Uglier comments followed.

Frankee, who is also from Staten Island, said she co-wrote the song with a friend and that other anti-Eamon songs will appear on her upcoming album, The Good, the Bad & the Ugly, due in April. She added that she wrote the track to defend herself against Eamon's attacks because, as she says in the song's intro, "You know, there are two sides to every story." And she claimed that his response to her track strengthens her position.

"If he never met me, why is he getting so mad?" Frankee said on the radio. "Would a stranger get you that mad?

"It shouldn't even be about me being Eamon's ex-girlfriend," she added. "The [reworked] song is more about empowering women to fight back when people try to smear your name."

Although Eamon hasn't taken any legal action against Frankee, he has threatened to do so — or to write another dis track so venomous it would be her undoing.

"She doesn't really want me to write something else about her," he told Z100. "She should stop where she is. If she doesn't want me to ruin her career, she should stop singing."

(Editor’s note: Eamon later claimed that he had approved the Frankee track and that the beef between the two was staged, a claim that Frankee denies.)

That Eamon Dis Track? Ho-Wopper Now Claims He Was Behind It

"Every time it gets played, I get paid." — Eamon
http://www.mtv.com/sitewide/images/spacer.gifThe beef between R&B singer Eamon and his so-called ex-girlfriend, Frankee, continues to heat up on radio, as stations across the country follow up his hit "F--- It (I Don't Want You Back)" with her dis track, "FU Right Back." Frankee's song, which uses the exact same music as "F--- It (I Don't Want You Back)," calls Eamon out as being lousy in bed, having pubic lice and generally sucking as a boyfriend. And Eamon loves every word. In fact, he claims he approved the song before the public even heard it.

Not only does he say Frankee was never his girl, he said she was handpicked by his staff to record a response to "F--- It (I Don't Want You Back)" in order to create the illusion of a feud. "There was a big tryout, and I actually know some of the girls who wanted to do the song, but I never met Frankee in my life," Eamon said. "I think it's corny to death, but it's funny."

New York radio station Z100, which was the first to play "FU Right Back," said it received the track anonymously in the mail and was never told the rivalry was staged.

Eamon says that after Frankee was chosen to sing the track, she and a songwriter penned the lyrics, then sent an MP3 of the finished cut on to Eamon when he was on the road. He loved what he heard and gave them permission to release it to radio. However, he was a bit surprised when Frankee started doing interviews.

"I never knew she was going to say she was my ex-girlfriend," Eamon said, then laughed. "It's the funniest thing because even my aunt called me and said, 'Is this really your ex-girlfriend?' It's all good, though. Every time it gets played, I get paid."

Frankee, who is currently working on her own album, continues to insist that she once dated Eamon. She said the two went out five years ago, when she was 15, and that they were together for about two months. "Sometimes we met at the park, and once or twice he came to my house," she said. "It wasn't that serious."

She said she decided to write the song with a friend after hearing from various people in Staten Island that Eamon wrote "F--- It (I Don't Want You Back)" about her, though she admits she's not absolutely sure the track is, in fact, about her. "After hearing the lyrics, it sounds like it was about me, so that's why I wrote the response," she said. "And even if he wasn't talking about me, I'm answering it back for whoever he is talking about."

Even after all the scuttlebutt, Eamon says he still loves "FU Right Back," though some of his friends are surprised he can remain so good-natured about a song that claims his "sex was wack." But the self-proclaimed ho-wopper said that the disses are what make the track entertaining. "When I hear it on the radio, I laugh hysterically," he said. "It's funny 'cause it's not about me. It's all just fun and jokes."

The success of "FU Right Back" has prompted other female singers from across the country to create their own versions of "F--- It (I Don't Want You Back)." "There's one from this girl in Philadelphia, and I'm getting comebacks in the mail every single day," Eamon said. "I must have really pinched a nerve for all these people to write something about me. I guess that means I've made it. People are writing songs about me."
