Never one to regard himself R&B, Ocean has slowly separated himself from the cliché of sappy, played out love songs over the years. The dude is establishing himself as a loner in the genre of ‘Frank Ocean’; ingenious lyrics, humble presence, tracks that make their way in to your personal spank-bank and give any white kid soul. The ten-minute track will have you at home plate before the tempo change hits, all seduction skills aside. This ‘aint no Ginuwine shit for a sentimental, lost cause… Unless you’re baby makin’. But, if getting straight up jiggy is your Saturday night/Sunday morning plan of action, your boy Franky has got you with Pyramids.
Undergoing a vast musical transition between The Lonny Breaux Collection tapes and nostalgia/ULTRA, fans can only expect fresh and interesting with Channel Orange as the 24-year-old singer/songwriter finds settles himself deeper in the biz.
Catch Frank Ocean at one of these Canadian stops:
- July 14 – Vancouver, BC @ Commodore Ballroom
- July 29 – Montreal, QC @ Club Soda
- July 31 – Toronto, ON @ The Guvernment
The New Orleans born, Los Angeles-based artist has toured only briefly in the U.S. with an exception to a gig in London in 2011. He will be joining Coldplay on their European tour in August following his North American trek.
