Frank Ocean Released 50 Track Playlist Of His Favorite Songs

Frank Ocean Playlist Favorite Songs

While the Internet is still recovering from the chaos that was Frank Ocean's double album release last week, we are blessed with more goodies from the man. To coincide with the release of Blonde, he launched four pop-up shops across the globe where he sold hard copies of the LP and a very special magazine called Boys Don't Cry.

Within the magazine are some golden nuggets that include Kanye writing a poem about McDonald's, more poems from other rappers including Tyler, The Creator, interviews with Lil B, Frank's mom and more.

On top of this, Frank also managed to include a list of 50 of his favorite tracks. Someone has taken the liberty of bringing this print list to digital form by creating a Spotify playlist of it.

This eclectic playlist ranges from Jimi Hendrix to Daft Punk to Goldlink to The Beatles to Aphex Twin and everything in between. It's a nice look into the mind of one of music's most exciting living figures. Take a listen and enjoy!

Frank Ocean teasing tactics over the past few months have thrown fans into an Internet frenzy with several instances of false hope. Fortunately, that has all come to an end as the talented singer has revealed two full albums in a matter of 48 hours, living up to his cryptic text, "I got two versions. I got twooo versions…".

What originally started as Boys Don't Cry has since become Blonde...and we get to listen to all 17 tracks off the project in full. This LP acts as a follow-up to his visual album, Endless, which went live on Thursday (Aug. 18) night. In addition, Frank has also published his Boys Don't Cry magazine being sold in few pop-up locations.

The album is available on iTunes right now. Stream or buy the album here. Enjoy!

Frank Ocean Releases Must Hear Single “Nikes” With Music Video

Frank Ocean Nikes Music Video

Frank Ocean broke his four-year silence with a "visual album" titled Endless. The project spans 45 minutes and was his first release since Channel Orange in 2012. Following the release, Apple stated there would be more music coming from Ocean this weekend, giving further evidence to the artist's claim, "I got two versions. I got twoooo versions," when first announcing the album in spring 2015. 

He keeps the content flowing with "Nikes" which highlights a new sound that is paired with a music video. The first three minutes showcase pitched-down, spoken verses that are layered with chipmunk-styled vocals. Following this extended sequence, his voice emerges in raw, unaffected form through both rapping and singing. 

The video itself is rather strange, capturing erotic imagery, a rapping chihuahua and even a brief A$AP Rocky cameo. Ocean also pays tribute to the deceased A$AP Yams, as well as Pimp C and Trayvon Martin in the artistic video. Watch the official video for "Nikes" below. Enjoy!
