Frank Ocean is the pop music "It" boy right now. With 'Channel Orange' landing this week and a recent, brave confession about his sexuality, Ocean is making headlines for both his music and his personal life. There was no time like the present for him to pose for famed photog Terry Richardson, who has shot the likes of Lady Gaga and Rihanna. A shoot with Richardson is another piece of evidence that Frank Ocean has truly arrived, at least from a pop culture standpoint.
Frank Ocean surprised his fans by releasing his debut album 'Channel Orange' on iTunes a week earlier before the physical CD release. For those of you who are waiting to buy the physical copy on July 17, there's an added bonus track called 'Golden Girl,' featuring Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator.
Based on sales in its first day of release on Tuesday (July 10), Frank Ocean's 'Chanenel Orange' is expected to sell between 110,000 and 125,000 copies this week, which could be enough to take the No. 2 position on the album chart.
After Frank Ocean took to Tumblr last week to publicly announce he was bisexual, luminaries like Jay-Z were quick to vocally support him. And now he can count another superstar as an ally: Jay's missus, Beyonce.
Frank Ocean is the talk of the music industry and for good reason. The Odd Future crooner's open letter about his bisexuality has garnered worldwide support from his fans and fellow artists alike. When news broke, many people wondered how OF leader Tyler, the Creator would react. Well, quite frankly, he already knew and it wasn't a big deal to him.
Frank Ocean certainly had one busy week. After posting an open letter about his sexuality on his Tumblr blog, the R&B singer posted a new song called 'Sweet Life' from his upcoming new album 'Channel Orange.'
