It’s about goddamn time. Over the weekend, Frank Ocean released his much anticipated, sophomore album, Blonde. It is exclusively on Apple Music & iTunes and by golly, it is good. Ocean is one of my favorites and it has been far too long since Channel Orange–although my personal favorite was his mixtape, Nostalgia, Ultra.
Blonde features appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000 and Beyonce with samples from Stevie Wonder and the Beatles. My favorite tracks so far are Solo and Self Control. Dude brings it. Welcome back Ocean.
