So, Frank Ocean is getting ready to release his newest album. Channel Orange. So who is Frank Ocean you ask? One of the best talents in the R&B scene right now hands down. For years he worked behind the scenes writing songs for top acts like Beyonce and John Legend. It wasn't until he joined the Odd Future when he started actually bringing his talents to the forefront. This is his first real solo effort although he has done stuff with OF like I mentioned as well as Jay-Z and Kanye. Why am I bothering typing this out? Because I genuinely think Frank is one of the best things that has happened to music in general in a long while. Especially the R&B scene. Chris Brown, Rihanna etc.. are all just pop acts that know how to get airplay on R&B stations. Frank Ocean however has real soul to his music. Guy as a killer voice.
The album is listed as coming out the 17th on Amazon. I think you might actually be able to grab it on iTunes right now though. There are also a few tracks of his on Spotify. I would highly encourage everyone to go listen to some of his stuff. Also for you OF fans motherfucking Earl Sweatshirt is on Channel Orange too! Anyways, most of you most likely won't give a fuck and thats fine. We all have our collective music tastes. Hopefully though some of you will buy Channel Orange and support Frank and his solo career so we can here more fucking awesome music from him. Peace out.
