It is a known fact throughout the world of Hip-Hop that the elusive and beloved singer, Frank Ocean, does not come out of hiding often and if he does, it is practically an experience rendered as a National Holiday. Frank bailed on his 2015 scheduled headlining gig at FYF Fest in Los Angeles, California and was immediately replaced by Mr. Kanye West. Ocean’s last festival performance was at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on June 14th in Manchester, Tennessee. The puzzling R&B hermit also shut down the internet in April of 2015 with his artificial announcement full of hashtags stating that he was in the midst of recording his third studio album which would later be released in July of 2015. The brilliant lighthouse full of golden talent’s came out with courage and openly expressing that he was discombobulated and dealing with crippling mental concerns that have inhibited his exposure in the world of glitz and glam while waited on the edge of their seats as the thirst reached new heights. Frank released ‘Blonde’ on August 20th, 2016 and it instantaneously morphed into a classic hit.

“Can’t keep up a conversation
Can’t nobody reach you
Why your eyes well up?
Did you call me from a séance?
You are from my past life
Hope you’re doing well bruh
I been out here head first
Always like the head first
Signal coming in and out
Hope you’re doing well bruh
Everybody needs you
Everybody needs you
Oooh nani nani
This feel like a quaalude
No sleep in my body
Ain’t no bitch in my body.”

Track – “Nights”

“Now and then you miss it, sounds make you cry
Some nights you dance with tears in your eyes
I came to visit ’cause you see me like a UFO
That’s like never, ’cause I made you use your self control
And you made me lose my self control, my self control.”

Track – “Self Control”

“You always smokin’ in the house
What if my mother comes over?
You can’t get up and get a job
Cause this little hustle’s getting you by
You’re the dealer and the stoner with the sweetest kiss I’ve ever known.”

Track – “Pilot Jones”

“Too many bottles of this wine we can’t pronounce
Too many bowls of that green, no Lucky Charms
The maids come around too much
Parents ain’t around enough
Too many joy rides in daddy’s Jaguar
Too many white lies and white lines
Super rich kids with nothing but loose ends
Super rich kids with nothing but fake friends.”

Track – “Super Rich Kids”

“When we were kids, we handpainted strawberries on a swing
Every moment was so precious, then
I’m still kicking, I’m daydreaming on a strawberry swing
The entire Earth is fighting, all the world is at its end
Just in case, an atom bomb, comes falling on my lawn
I should say and you should hear, I’ve loved
I’ve loved the good times here, I’ve loved our good times here.”

Track – “Strawberry Swing”
