Start Your Weekend With The Smooth Tune of Frank Ocean's 'Sweet Life'
  • FRIDAY, JULY 06, 2012

Frank Ocean has been making headlines this week, particularly in his NY Times profile piece and his own blog post where he all but came out. It was a nice, well-told and honest moment, and the first of its kind by an artist of Ocean's stature. It took a boatload of courage and integrity. We applaud him.

Now onto the tunes -- as if the young R&B hero needs any more bolstering -- between his contributions to Jay-Z, Kanye, and Beyonce, as well as his big brother roll with the Odd Future kids, Ocean isn't hurting for reasons to call his life a good one. This track off his forthcoming LP Channel Orange, "The Sweet Life," is another tangential tune, seductive in every way except for being a literal song about seduction. Classic Ocean, succinct and emotionally charged. A great jumping point for a couple of lazy days off.

Happy weekend.




Channel Orange is out July 17th via Def Jam.
