If I had my way, each song from Frank Ocean's channel Orange would have a visual counterpart. It looks as if I'm one step to having my dream come true as Frank let loose the music video for the upbeat track "Lost."
Watch below as director Francisco Soriano compiles moments from Frank's summer of 2012, and be sure to buy the Grammy Award winning album on Amazon or iTunes if you haven't already!

Tyler, The Creator plans to release his album Wolf tomorrow, and both the critics and fans are giving the Odd Future general his props on this one. The Sony distributed album is a proper follow up to his previous efforts Bastard and Goblin as we find Tyler in a more elevated creative space in terms of production and lyrical delivery.
While Odd Future videos have always been entertaining, Tyler also stepped up his game in the visual department. Watch below as he brings a Mattel themed nightmare to life in the visuals to the Pharrell featured "IFHY."
To hear how the rest of Wolf sounds before it hits stores tomorrow, stream the album in full after the jump!

Frank Ocean is starting off 2013 with two Grammy Awards under his belt and about 11 songs crafted for his sophomore album. While we wait to hear what Frank has in store with producers like Pharrell, Danger Mouse, and Malay, take a listen to the previously unreleased "Eyes Like Sky."
Though the track didn't make the cut for Channel Orange, "Eyes Like Sky" definitely deserved to see the light of day. Your girl's got puns.

I remember Big Boi saying that he wanted to appear along with Andre 3000 on Frank Ocean's "Pink Matter," but of course legal mumbo jumbo wouldn't allow it. Instead, we get an unofficial Outkast reunion as Sir Lucious adds a verse to the Channel Orange favorite.

Thursday, July 26, 2012
Ever since Frank Ocean came out as bisexual on the fourth of the July, there's been a lot of talk surrounding what his statement means for his future and also for the black and hip hop communities themselves. His Odd Future brothers Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt could care less about his preferences, and they explained this (sort of) when they sat down with MTV News and added their signature humor to the entire situation.

Last night, Frank Ocean's debut album Channel Orange was surprisingly released digitally a week before its scheduled July 17th date. Moments later the singer, who recently revealed in a heartfelt letter that he was bisexual, took to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to perform "Bad Religion," one of the most personal tracks from the album. Watch the emotional and, in my opinion, incredible performance below.

Check out the TEN minute long "Pyramids" below, and hit the jump to see if Frank's channel orange tour is stopping through your city!
Frank Ocean - Pyramids Lyrics
July 17th. Channel Orange. What is that? Ummmmm. My guess is a new project. Or at least I hope that's what it is.
Frank Ocean, in his usual mysterious fashion, dropped off this teaser video via Tumblr this morning, so that means something's coming! As soon as I find out you know I've got you.

When Jay-Z & Kanye West release a video, especially after all this time, you know it's going to be a work of art. With the help of director Romain Gavras, they depict a full out riot in Prague to the tune of "No Church In The Wild." Neither they nor Frank Ocean appear in the visuals, but it's captivating nonetheless. Watch The Throne in stores now.

I'm convinced this new track from Frank Ocean is a track like those on his Lonny Breaux Collection--OLD. Because the lyrics and sound definitely aren't of the caliber of Nostalgia/Ultra and some of his new material. Posting it nevertheless.

Whatever MeLo-X touches turns to gold and his remix of Frank Ocean's "White" is surely no exception. This time, the producer also lends his voice to the track as he spits a nice verse that perfectly captures the message of the song.
