“Channel Orange” by Frank Ocean is out a week early, is the best

Sarah Harper

Frank Ocean knows how to use Tumblr. Last week, the R&B crooner of the Odd Future rap collective used the blogging platform to tell the world that his first love was a man. And last night, he dropped his Def Jam debut via Tumblr post.

I'm still on my first listen, but so far, it's feeling reblog-worthy. To use more universally understood terms, this is one of the most beautiful R&B albums I've ever heard. The song-to-song flow is as smooth as Ocean's soulful voice.
