James Blake has production credits on “Solo” and “Godspeed,” but he didn’t limit his influence on Frank Ocean‘s Blonde album to studio sessions. The talented vocalist, producer, and instrumentalist delivered a memorable cover performance of “Godspeed” during his performance at the FORM Arcosanti Festival in Arcosanti, Arizona. Watch James’s performance below. .@jamesblake closed out the FORM Arcosanti . . .
There are two versions of “RAF.” Both of them features A$AP Rocky, Frank Ocean, Lil Uzi Vert, and Quavo. The two versions have different Frank Ocean verses, though. The song debuted early Sunday morning on Frank Ocean’s Beats 1 Blonded Radio. Stream both versions of “RAF” below, and check out the newly released solo of . . .
The elusive Frank Ocean has been pretty active lately. Late last summer he released two albums Endless, and then Blond the very next day. Fast forward and we get Blonded Radio on Apple Music, on which Ocean has been sharing new music–such as the singles “Chanel”, “Biking,” and most recently an updated version of “Slide On Me” . . .
Scottish producer/DJ Calvin Harris teased “Slide” for a few days, but the time has finally come for its release. The single, which features appearances from Frank Ocean and Migos, is his first release since his 2016 album, Endless and Blonde. The song feels like a warm summer breeze. Frank’s vocals float over Calvin’s production, while . . .
If you told me Alessia Cara was going to cover Frank Ocean’s “Super Rich Kids” a week ago? I would have given you a confused look. If you chose to divulge to me that she’d also be covering Earl Sweatshirt’s guest verse on that same song, I probably would have laughed. Yet, we’re still here. . . .
In 1956, James Baldwin introduces us to one of the most narcissistic, yet relatable characters in American literature: David, an American man living abroad in Paris. During his time in Paris, David becomes estranged from the woman of his dreams (Hella) and finds himself falling in love with an Italian bartender named Giovanni. ‘Love him,’ said . . .
After releasing his new visual album Endless, Frank Ocean returns with a video for “Nikes”. The imagery is powerful with pictures of ASAP Yams & Trayvon Martin, to Frank clad in glitter and even talking chihuahuas. Reports are swirling that his heavily anticipated Boys Don’t Cry will drop this weekend. Watch the video for “Nikes” below and . . .
There’s a peculiar truth about nostalgia and I think it’s time we discuss it. That truth: nothing was ever as good as we remember it. Nothing. Not the touch, not the taste, not the sound, not even the moment. But that’s what makes nostalgia so fucking great, right? It’s not about how accurate our brains . . .
I was told…by Apple Care…that Frank Ocean’s sophomore album will be here on Friday!!! (and that I could get a part) Well not really, but soon and very soon, Boys Don’t Cry will be dropping (allegedly). It’s hard to think of another artist audience who has been pining after their musical savior so deeply, in . . .
Frank Ocean, like many of us, needed a period of time to truly absorb the horror of what occurred at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando last week. The reclusive singer emerged to poignantly deliver his thoughts in regards to the massacre, the hatred that exists for non heterosexual people in the world, and the society that . . .
A lot of people were upset to see that the studio version of “Wolves” was sans Vic Mensa and Sia, but today the Kanye West standout track is re-imagined, courtesy of an unofficial version from an unknown source. There’s a definitive thread of irony in the fact that the version of this song that is . . .
Frank Ocean just announced a forthcoming new album called Boys Don’t Cry via Tumblr. To say that the follow up to Channel ORANGE is highly anticipated would be an understatement.

Frank Ocean turned a lot of heads recently with a fantastic remake of “At Your Best.” His strikingly pure falsetto truly captured the essence of the original. starRo took the remix into his own hands, infusing it with unpredictably dramatic instrumentation.

Frank Ocean‘s falsetto has taken him far in life. He puts it to good use once more, releasing an awesome cover of The Isley Brothers’ “At Your Best (You Are Love)” via his Tumblr. The song was originally released in 1976, and Aaliyah also covered it before her untimely death in 2001. Yesterday would have . . .
It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard some time from Frank Ocean, but the supremely talented singer and songwriter returns with “Memrise.” “Memrise” is a bit more edgy and experimental than the majority of Channel Orange, but it still has the distinctly nostalgic feel of a Frank Ocean record. Stream “Memrise” below.
