Frank Ocean's Channel Orange is finally here. Frank decided to release his debut studio album a week early for purchase on iTunes. The first single "Pyramids" took the internet by storm, getting the public even more intrigued to hear more. The Pharrell produced, "Sweet Life" is another standout off the album. I don't remember the last time I heard a project quite like Channel Orange. R&b, hip-hop, soul, jazz and pop all blended into a mix of songs that contain Frank's deep thoughts and experiences. With that said, do yourself a favour and get this album. Purchase it on iTunes, or you could also head over to Ocean's tumblr as he's generously posted a free stream. I've also included a stream for the Andre 3000 assisted joint "Pink Matter"... Frank Ocean and 3 Stacks, enough said. So go get your dose of Channel Orange and let us know your thoughts. Purchase: Frank Ocean - "Channel Orange"
Frank Ocean has been in the spotlight as of late, and for once it hasn't been for his music. After rumours swirled regarding Frank Ocean's sexuality, it didn't take long for the man himself to set things straight. If you haven't gotten the chance to read Frank's note to the people, I suggest you do so. You can find it here via his tumblr. The reception from the public has thankfully been positive. Like most, I applaud his bravery and accept who he is. Most importantly, his or any artists sexual orientation is irrelevant when it comes to the quality of his/her music. Speaking of quality music, here is the newly released track off Frank's upcoming highly anticipated album, Channel Orange. "Sweet Life" has an old-school r&b feel and is filled with that signature Frank Ocean soul. Similar to "Pyramids", "Sweet Life" is a song you can't help but enjoy. Frank shows once again that his singing abilities are unmatched and that his lyrics are fresh and filled with substance. Pharrell's production compliments Frank's vocals perfectly, making this track stand out that much more. Check out "Sweet Life" for yourself below and let us know what you think. Channel Orange drops July 17th.
