I’m not a big fan of Odd Future’s stuff, but this. Oh, Frankie.
If you listen to anything today, let it be Frank Ocean’s album “Channel Orange.” It’s an instant classic, a marvel of smooth jams and lyrical pleas. My favorite cut off the album might just be “Bad Religion,” although lord knows I also get weak in the knees listening to “Thinkin Bout You” and “Pyramids.” Anyway, take a listen to “Bad Religion” below, and try not to get chills. If it’s not obvious — the tune’s especially revealing given some of Ocean’s recent personal revelations.
Below is the video of Frankie performing “Bad Religion” on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” To say this is one of the best live late night performances ever is an understatement; just look at his face, and the bigass grin he’s sporting afterward. Boy, you done good, and now everyone knows it.
