Frank Ocean usually takes subdued approaches to his videos, but not with 'Pyramids.' The 'Channel Orange' singer examines the contrasts between the seedy underworld of strip joints and the actual underworld, all while sporting a sharp suit and brandishing a gun. The dark, trippy clip is a stark contrast to his 'SNL' performance of the song with John Mayer, in which he danced and played video games.

The season premiere of 'Saturday Night Live' kicked off with a bang, featuring musical guests Frank Ocean and John Mayer. The chemistry between the performers is palpable and a lot of fun to watch, and they brought an intensity to the otherwise lighthearted show -- but still didn't take themselves too seriously.
When Frank Ocean graces the stage on the season premiere of 'Saturday Night Live' this Saturday (Sept. 15), he will have special guest with him -- singer-guitarist John Mayer. The Odd Future crooner announced the news on his Twitter feed today (Sept. 11). "SNL this weekend. Me and the bro John Mayer," he wrote.
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.
