Frank Ocean took to Tumblr earlier this year to break his silence and announce a new album to be released this July. We now have a pleasant surprise to hold us over until he drops the album.
To catch us all by surprise, Major Lazer has utilized MØ's vocal abilities to cover Frank Ocean's “Lost,” and it works perfectly. The infectious singer MO took the world by storm and inspired countless remixes of her song "Don't Wanna Dance,” and continues to impress as she pays respect to the original on this cover. Diplo brought his A game on this irresistible instrumental to bring a new light to Frank’s hit as he’s reimagined the song as a Major Lazer style reggae, summertime jam.

It seems that the rather secretive Frank Ocean has just announced his much anticipated third studio album, along with its title. He just shared the above photo on his website (Which is now temporarily down due to traffic), and his tumblr.
He posted this with the following caption
"'I got two versions. I got twoooo versions.' #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY."
This sounds like we can expect his third album in July, and will be titled Boys Don't Cry. It also looks like there might be either mutliple parts to the release or alternate covers, or even an accompanying magazine like we see in the picture.
Frank Ocean has covered late R&B icon Aaliyah's rendition of the Isley Brothers tune “At Your Best”. The new track “You Are Love” surfaced hours ago through Ocean's Tumblr page and gets us even more excited about his forthcoming sophomore album release. The song features unbelievable falsetto vocals that are completed with strong piano chords throughout. Enjoy!

Frank Ocean – Pink Matter (Remix) (ft. Big Boi & Andre 3000) : First Track With Both Members of Outkast in YearsPosted in Chill by nick | Tags: Andre 3000, Big Boi, Frank Ocean, Hip-Hop, Outkast, Rap, Remix
Apparently Frank Ocean is so damn good, that he actually reunited both Big Boi and Andre 3000 of Outkast on his track Pink Matter. But when it got released on his album, channel Orange, complications arose and only Andre 3000‘s verse saw the light of day. Well now we get the remix, which is actually the true version feauring Big Boi‘s verse. He adds a nice fresh flowful edge with consistent solid lines adding just the right twist to a great track. If this is the sign of these three working together on some original material, the world might just loose it. Do you like this version better then the previously released one? Sit back and enjoy!

Quentin Tarantino’s latest film Django Unlimited packs quite the soundtrack featuring tracks from artists like John Legend and Rick Ross. Tarantino also called upon Frank Ocean to make an original track for the film, yet could never find that proper place to fit it in the movie. Now we get our hands on “Wiseman”, the unreleased soundtrack single thanks to Frank personally. The production screams Tarantino with a distinct reoccurring gritty electronic guitar strum painting the perfect background for Frank’s smooth vocals to take the listener away. Enjoy!

Frank Ocean is an incredible singer and musician, and his recent Chanel Orange album is a great listen all the way through. The lead single on the album “Pyramids” is an 8 minute long journey that has so many different parts to it you can’t get bored. The song deserved an equally epic music video to compliment it.

Frank Ocean‘s ‘Pyramids’ is a great song.. so why not a bass heavy remix? A trippy intro with Frank’s voice starts the track off, progressing to an unexpected drop. There’s some intense synths that sound like there from a rave anthem.. then the bass drops HARD. It then progresses through a massive attack of bass that will make you move your head. Find some massive speakers to properly listen, enjoy!
