Musician Sky Ferreira was cross this weekend, and no mistake. Why? Because she’d been accidentally locked out of her SoundCloud account. Ferreira took to Instagram to complain.

“Hey @soundcloud I can’t access my own account that I started & uploaded everything myself. I ended up bamboozled. I was forced/told I had no choice to hand over my account information to my label after my album came out,” wrote Ferreira.

“They gave me the wrong information & changed it so I can no longer access it. The person who changed the login is unreachable & the contact no longer exist. I need it back ASAP. I earned the hundreds of thousands of people that follow the account without my label & have never had help/paid for anything on social media or whatever.”

The cry from the heart was clearly heard: Ferreira has been allowed back in to her SoundCloud account now, and posted a new track to celebrate.

“Thanks to my fans & soundcloud for helping me get my login back so quickly,” she wrote. “I promise I will be posting a lot more stuff on here & will let you know more about my album. I always feel a lot more comfortable sharing music related things here instead of Instagram etc”.

A penny for the thoughts of Capitol Records, the label that released Ferreira’s last studio album.
