The Best Lyrics On Frank Ocean's "Blonde"

A selection of the new Frank Ocean album's most exquisite bars.

Frank Ocean first revealed himself as a generational songwriting talent on his 2011 debut nostalgia, ULTRA, then emerged as a full-blown star on the strength of the 2012's Channel Orange, which amounted to a series of vignettes about wealth, drugs, friendship, and love.

On his new album Blonde, Ocean revisits his formative years and explores many of these same themes. The album is filled with exquisite turns of phrase overlaid atop sublime melodies. It is both dense and lucid, perhaps a reflection of Ocean's synesthesia. 

In any case, Blonde has the feeling of another classic. Click through the gallery to explore a few of its finest lyrical moments.
