Initially, Odee responded saying that the image was found on a template website that everyone had access to.
However, Need Music came back with an explanation saying that they had outsourced the design process and so had no idea the logo had already been used.

Since then, both Odee and Need Music have apologised for the use of B.A.P’s logo and have made moves to fix the album artworks currently on Spotify.
