XL confirms Jai Paul leak

Confirming what Jai Paul said earlier this week, the Bandcamp album was unofficial.

To catch up: an album/mixtape allegedly by Jai Paul appeared online over the weekend. However, the album was eventually pulled, with Jai Paul taking to Twitter: “To confirm: demos on bandcamp were not uploaded by me, this is not my debut album. Please don’t buy. Statement to follow later. Thanks, Jai”.

Jai Paul’s label, XL Recordings, has finally made good with a statement, although it does not shine any light on what transpired (i.e. Jai Paul’s allegedly stolen laptop). XL describes the music as “a collection of various unfinished recordings from Jai’s past” and says that all purchases will be refunded with the week.

As widely reported, on Sunday 14th April, music by XL Recordings artist Jai Paul was illegally made available via a fake Bandcamp account. This music was not uploaded by Jai and it’s not his debut album – it is a collection of various unfinished recordings from Jai’s past.

Neither XL or Jai will take any money from the sale of this music. We have been working with Bandcamp and PayPal to resolve this situation and they have told us all purchases will be refunded within the next 7 days
