Y/N is a guide to the week’s music releases based on our highly scientific, non-subjective Yes/No rating system.
New Zealand’s preeminent sprite/grandma/teen Lorde is currently touring in support of her album Melodrama. Whilst performing in Milwaukee on Thursday evening, she trotted out a Frank Ocean cover.
Frank Ocean released a cover of Johnny Mercer’s “Moon River” on Valentine’s Day, in case you weren’t already sobbing in the shower while eating discount chocolate.
Frank Ocean and Brad Pitt are two peas in a pod. Los dos amigos. Bread and butter. Why else would Ocean project a video of Pitt talking on the phone as he performed at FYF Fest on Saturday?
Frank Ocean, once famous for his sporadic musical output, was quick to release his first solo single since his triumphant third major work Blonde dropped in August. Ocean debuted “Chanel” on his Beats 1 radio show Blonded Friday night, and, a few minutes after, played a remix of the same track. He also released the…
Following the lead of Frank Ocean, a few big names—Kanye West, Drake and Justin Bieber—are reportedly choosing not to attend this year’s Grammy Awards, probably because it’s out of touch.
“A MASTERPIECE” reads the poster of Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea in a font larger than the title. It’s a font so large that the blur of motion doesn’t render it illegible—it’s in, I think, every subway station along New York’s L line, which means I’m confronted at least a few times on most days with “A…
Frank Ocean, artist of artists, has deliberately declined to win a Grammy this year, and you know what—that’s his right.
Kanye West, a man of many opinions, has yet another one: Frank Ocean should be nominated for a Grammy. In fact, Kanye feels so strongly about the matter that he has threatened not to attend the ceremony if Ocean is snubbed. And he’s right: Ocean absolutely should be nominated. The problem is that he isn’t.
Of course Michelle Obama wore an Italian designer to the State Dinner hosting Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and Agnese Landini—she’s thoughtful like that and she knows what looks good on her, hence perhaps the best formal look we’ve seen on anyone all year.
This year while everyone was waiting in front of their Frank Ocean shrines hoping he’d drop an album soon, his enterprising mom launched a line of sunscreen designed for darker skin tones.
Prolificness and perfectionism have always been the likely culprits in the delay for Frank Ocean’s second album—which, after many months of bumped-back release dates, arrived in a flood this weekend, unannounced. On Saturday he dropped Blond, the full-length follow-up to Channel Orange; that same day, he released an…
We’ve hit the last gasps of summer, which is exactly optimal timing for the release of Frank Ocean’s new single, “Nikes.” This track is floating in a pool with a kiwi-strawberry smoothie spiked with codeine, a worn copy of Under a Glass Bell dangling loosely from your fingertips, at least at first: Each passing second…
After two weeks of nothing, the live-stream that abruptly stopped August 5 on Frank Ocean’s website is up and running again. FRANK WHAT’S GOING ON.
Frank Ocean will allegedly release his second studio album, Boys Don’t Cry, today. Many people on the internet will have opinions about it, and about Frank. But ours are the best.
Frank Ocean, the internet’s elusive Jesus, will tomorrow finally divine upon our unwashed masses an album, after four years and umpteen delays. It is called Boys Don’t Cry, and frankly (heh) I’ll see it when I believe it, but there’s now at least one crumb out there to this thing actually manifesting.
Frank Ocean’s delayed (in the sense that people are thirsty) sophomore album Boys Don’t Cry will be out this week, sources tell The New York Times.
This is the age of the sharing economy, everyone, so what better way for Kendall Jenner to be her most ‘Murrican self this past Fourth of July weekend than by hanging out in a $30 million mansion that also moonlights as an Airbnb?
After what feels like a lifetime of delays, Frank Ocean has cryptically indicated that his second studio album, Boys Don’t Cry, will finally come out this month. On Saturday, Ocean posted an image of a library due date card featuring a stamp for July 2016, though of course that pileup of other deadlines blew right by…
