In an interview with FADER, French pianist Christophe Chassol detailed his experience working with Frank Ocean on his upcoming album. Check out what he had to say below.
Frank Ocean has released "You Are Luhh," a cover of Aaliyah's song, "At Your Best (You Are Love)," which is a cover of The Isley Brothers' song of the same name. Yesterday would have been Aaliyah's 36th birthday so Frank released his cover in honor of her. He absolutely killed it and delivered a beautiful, simplistic version that did not disappoint. Check the song out here on his Tumblr. The anticipation for his next project is at an all-time high. Enjoy.
I made this list for last year and it went over well so let’s do it again! There honestly is a lot less to anticipate this year since last year’s musical output was so amazing, but the game is full of surprises, so I don’t count anyone out. Enjoy.

Kanye West will always be my favorite artist for many reasons that I won’t get into right now. But, after a few months of really good music, I want to list my top 10 favorite artists, BASED OFF OF THE PAST FEW MONTHS. In a couple of months, it could be an entirely different list, but for now, here goes:
-These are not in order by who’s better, just who I’m feeling the most.
My Top Ten:
1. Joey Bada$$
2. J. Cole
3. Kendrick Lamar
4. Frank Ocean
7. Chance The Rapper
9. Rockie Fresh
10. Kirk Knight
Here is Frank Ocean’s Grammy performance of “Forrest Gump”. So apparently he couldn’t hear his keyboards and everything when he performed so that might explain why he was off key for some of us. But, you know what? This was still a good performance. Go Frank. Congrats on your two Grammys. Enjoy.
The song that Frank Ocean made for Django Unchained has now been released via his Tumblr. The song did not make the movie soundtrack because Quentin Tarantino couldn’t find a place for it. It is absolutely amazing though; Frank Ocean does it again. Enjoy.
I don’t know who this K’La chick is, but apparently she’s signed to Def Jam. She just released a very interesting remix of Frank Ocean’s “Pink Matter” off of Channel Orange. I’m not gon’ lie; I was feeling this remix. She covered all her bases on this one. I just might check her out next time I see her name. enjoy.
Frank Ocean covers Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees” and does so amazingly. In the last few seconds you hear him transition in “Voodoo”. Let’s hope he wins some Grammys because he truly deserves them. Enjoy.
Frank Ocean released a chill, laid-back, RAP song over some Disney-esque beat and it wasn’t that bad. Haha yeah that’s right. This man is talented. He said some interesting things on this one, but I’ll let you check it out. Stream below. Enjoy.
Frank Ocean comes through with the visuals for his song “Pyramids”. Nabil directed an amazing video for this as it captures the song perfectly. Frank Ocean continues to choose the perfect videos for his tracks. This video features a cool cameo by John Mayer plus interpolations of the first and last tracks from channel ORANGE. Enjoy.
Frank Ocean has begun his channel ORANGE tour and video has surfaced from his set in New York City. Sit back as he gets into most of channel ORANGE and some songs from nostalgia, ULTRA.
"Super Rich Kids (sans Earl Sweatshirt)"
"Thinkin’ Bout You"
"Strawberry Swing/Made In America"
I stand by my statement that Odd Future has the funniest interviews out there. This is a short one with the Odd Future members talking about Frank Ocean and his quirky habits. Enjoy.
Frank Ocean had a concert in Los Angeles the other day and brought out Earl Sweatshirt to perform “Super Rich Kids”. Enjoy.
