The R&B crooner and amazing song writer known as Frank Ocean is set to release his latest album and embark on his multi-city tour, both tentatively titled ‘Channel Orange‘, but before the album drops we prepare our eyes and ears for the many pre-release reviews. One review from BBC 1 Xtra‘s Max has posted a preview via her personal webblog with the following excerpt:
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.
The million dollar question is what do you think? Will this stop you from blasting and reciting Frank Ocean lyrics?
