Frank Ocean lists Jimi Hendrix, D'Angelo, and Stevie Wonder songs among his favorites.

Frank Ocean has not only delivered an exciting new album projected to do massive numbers -- he's also released a 200+-page zine chockful of content that includes poetry by Kanye West and Tyler, The Creator. Hour by hour, bits of the zine are leaked onto social media. The latest: Ocean's lists of his favorite songs and favorite movies.
