So, we are sure you’ve heard by now the news about Frank Ocean coming out about his first love being a male, right? Well if not, click here. The #NoMoreSecrets hash tag he started was the worldwide top viral trend of the past week. The Odd Future (OFWGKTA) member and solo artist began his musical career as a ghostwriter for many elite R&B/Pop singers such as Justin Bieber, Brandy and John Legend. His Nostalgic Ultra mixtape is critically held as one of the best releases of 2011. He’s most widely known for writing hooks and collaborating w/ Jay-Z and Kanye West on the Watch The Throne album. With his July 12th debut album release and sold out summer tour, the world will finally get a taste of the latest R&B crooner to reinvent the genre.
Check out his live performance of the song “Bad Religion” below. His debut television appearance on Jimmy Fallon will definitely prove the magic of this special young artist. The song details an encounter with a religious Muslim taxi driver. Their conversation contrasts the difference between the men’s faith, as Frankie croons about his same sex love affair. Although his first official major label release will not be available on Target’s shelves (initial rumors implied due to his sexual orientation) since it dropped exclusively on iTunes first, Billboard charts still expect Channel Orange to rank at least #2 for the week. Be sure to pick up a copy of this game changing debut album!
