Twitter is up in arms today about singer Frank Ocean. Ocean who is also a songwriter and has wrriten for many big name stars like Beyoncé, John Legend, Brandy and Justin Bieber became the Trending Topic due to some lyrics on his new album Channel Orange..
On his new album Frank gives his audience insight to his personal life. Apparently the singer decided to come out and discuss his bi-sexuality on the album.
One review from BBC 1 Xtra‘s Max has posted a preview via her personal webblog with the following excerpt, which you can view after the jump!
Frank has also opened up about his sexuality on the album, we think it’s brave and admire him for being so honest and sharing such a personal aspect of his life through his music. On the songs ‘Bad Religion’ ‘Pink Matter and ‘Forrest Gump’ you can hear him sing about being in love and there are quite obvious words used like ‘him’ and not ‘her’.
In the world we live in now we can’t see this being an issue or why it should be?? But we do commend him for not continuing a facade and conforming to what a Hip Hop so called rule book expects, we say live your life and be yourself. If you love women and men, that’s your business.
Channel Orange is a beautiful album and worthy of sitting next to classics by Prince, Michael Jackson, George Benson and Sade.
