It's no doubt that Frank Ocean is already blowing up the spot when it comes to his recently released "Channel Orange". The R&B artist is garnering enormous support and it looks like he may be the break out kid of 2012.
Channel Orange has sold over 100,000 units via digital outlets already and the LP is well on it's way to dominate the Billboard Hot 100 for two consecutive weeks and this following the release of its physical copies this coming week. We definietly see Grammy's in Franks future. YES we said it!
In the latest of celebrities to show their support to the talented artist, record producer Jermaine Dupri has officially given Frank Ocean his co-sign in an open letter. (Read below)
When I saw the # that Frank Ocean is suppose to hit next week, I got extremely Happy,I said I need to get in my car and and listen to this album,by the time I got to “Sweet Life” I was even more happy,finally!! a RnB album that’s hip,with out having the same 5 rappers on every song,I actually hope he hits 200k,for the sake of RnB,it’s in the worst position it’s ever been since I started making music,The Record company’s don’t believe in it,Radio won’t play it if it don’t have a rapper,and a majority of the artist that are labeled RnB,are confused and lost,so I repeat,I hope Ocean sells more than the 125k that he’s on pace for, maybe these executives u’ll wake the fuck up,or at least try to copy what he’s doing,like they always do, by the way,the end of “Pyramids” jammin like a mufucka.
You're on your way Frank! Congrats!!
