Frank Ocean – Sweet Life

08.07.12, Words by: Charlie Jones

How’s your week been? Chances are, it’s nothing on Frank Ocean’s. On Wednesday morning, he became the first out-and-proud major American artist of the hip hop generation. On Wednesday night, he could Tweet that Stevie Wonder sang his song No Church In The Wild to him at an Independence Day party.

Caspar Salmon, in a wonderful piece for this site compared Frank to Stevie, and he channels that timeless voice on his latest track, uploaded to his Soundcloud yesterday, co-written by Pharell. Listen to it below, and tell us your thoughts below. The song will appear on his album ‘Channel Orange’, out Monday 16th July.
