Re: Frank Ocean
I listened to his mixtape stuff for about a year once I heard him on the Watch The Throne album and found out he wrote a song for Beyonce. When I heard Pyramids, Thinking Bout You and Sweet Life I rapidly started becoming a fan. Downloaded Nostalgia, ULTRA and bought channel, ORANGE. Love both albums and they have been on constant replay for about a month now. Frank is a good song writer and a stellar vocalist. When you have a 10 minute record like Pyramids that captivates me like he does singing about how we value people and things (in this case pyramids/black royalty & black women) you've got remarkable talent. I really appreciate that his music and lyrical content is not contained in one area. Channel, ORANGE address issues with love, sex, commitment, religion, social issues like drugs and poverty, character study of the rich/poor, and more. Frank Ocean is an artist and I am loving his work right now.
