Listen: Frank Ocean Releases A New Pharrell-Produced Track Titled ‘Sweet Life’


Seeing as how I just wrote an entire PITNB popCulture post on him, I have run out of good, eloquent things to say about Frank Ocean. I am reduced to: he’s… just… awesomeness. Anyway, he just released a new track on his tumblr called Sweet Life. Although the two songs are very different, the vibe is reminiscent of the Nas/Amy Winehouse track we just heard– mellow, jazzy and summer-perfect.

Frank Ocean: Sweet Life

We’ve got a few more weeks before the release of Frank Ocean’s highly-anticipated debut album, Channel Orange and I think this (and a few more tracks) should hold us over. I think Sweet Life is lovely; it doesn’t have me swooning to the high heavens like Pyramid (which I find an excuse to mention in, like, every post), but it’s still a good track.

For me, July 17 cannot come soon enough.

Sorry, can’t resist:

    I first heard of Frank Ocean through JoJo on Twitter(Jojo @Jojoistheway
    You just changed the game @frank_ocean. I respect you and love your work. The move you just made… So strong. Sending all positive vibes), and then recently on PITNB…I’ve been a PITNB reader since I was 15! It’s been 8 years.

    Never heard of Frank Ocean before this week, but…damn – I am loving his music! Gotta say, I’m looking forward to his album release. :D I may need to pick it up! :X

    • Miguel, I’m semi-new to him as well, although I’ve heard the hype for years. So far, I think he lives up to it!

      ‘Thinkin Bout You’ is such a sweet song, so much truth to it. I listen to it, and I literally go back to days when I was 17, and felt the SAME exact way. It’s scary! I love it though. :D
