Frank Ocean has penned tracks for some R&B elites.
By now, we all know Frank Ocean best as the Odd Future member who's peeled off and had arguably the most successful solo career of the whole crew. A ton of that is thanks to his solo material, with Channel Orange especially garnering a ton of positive reception, but Ocean's also made his mark on the R&B game as a guest vocalist and writer. High-profile collabs with Kanye and Jay Z have obviously done wonders for his notoriety, but behind the scenes, Ocean's written some big hits for star singers.
With his new album scheduled to arrive in July, take a look back at some of Ocean's little-known writing credits. When you're finished, be sure to check out the similar breakdown we did for Ty Dolla $ign a few weeks ago.
