Chance The Rapper's gotten himself some pretty famous fans. In a new interview with GQ (check out a pic from the photoshoot above), the Chicago native spoke on his yet-to-be-titled debut album, revealing that Frank Ocean, Andre 3000 and J. Cole all make appearances on it.
In honor of Aaliyah’s birthday which was on Friday (she would’ve been 36 btw), Frank Ocean decided to take to his Tumblr Page and pay homage with a cover of her 1994 record “At Your Best” (itself a cover of The Isley Brothers' 1976 track "At Your Best [You Are Love]").
Frank Ocean has been pretty reclusive over the past year. After releasing his debut album, Channel Orange, to both critical acclaim and Grammys (a weirdly rare feat to get both these days), he disappeared, deleting his Twitter account and rarely doing interviews.
Frank Ocean has taken a back seat when it comes to social media and all the drama it entails. He's also been low-key when it comes to music. Today the singer pops up in the news not because of any new music (although we hope that's on the way), but because he wants to legally change his name to Frank Ocean.
Frank Ocean's father hasn't been a part of the R&B singer's life since he was five years old, but he feels his reputation as a father has been wrongly tarnished, and he's seeking $142 million in compensation.
Last year's Met Gala was a memorable one, as you may recall Kanye West was the performer and he treated fans to then-unheard music off his latest album Yeezus. Since we learned recently that Frank Ocean is finally back in the studio and working on a new project, we can only hope the r'n'b singer acts accordingly.
Frank Ocean has appeared in the news lately, although it hasn't had to do with new music from the singer. Rather, his name has been circulating because of a Chipotle lawsuit over a commercial track that Ocean never ended up doing, despite taking an advance for it. The r'n'b singer has since settled the matter.
Frank Ocean recently settled a lawsuit with Chipotle in a pretty badass way-- at least, we thought he did. The singer was paid a hefty sum to contribute some vocals to an ad campaign, but he never followed through.
OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), more commonly referred to as Odd Future, made a huge splash in the rap world when they burst onto the scene in late 2009 with crew leader Tyler, the Creator's critically-acclaimed Bastard mixtape.
Seattle production duo Blue Sky Black Death revisited Frank Ocean's debut studio album channel ORANGE this week, putting their inimitable spin on his "Pyramids" single. Try and not lose yourself in it.
