Whether it’s his addicting beats or his lyrical genius, Frank Ocean is without a doubt a musical force to be reckoned with. Songs like “Novacane” and “Thinking About You," along with the visually enticing and provocative music videos that go with them, are proof that Ocean is rejuvenating a soulful genre of music the industry has been craving. He got his start with the help of Tricky Stewart, whom he met through his affiliation with Odd Future, a Los Angeles-based hip hop collective, and eventually signed to Def Jam.  Starting out as a humble producer creating music for the likes of John Legend, Justin Beiber, Brandy and recently Jay Z and BeyoncĂ©, Ocean has gracefully emerged as an independent artist, much to the pleasure of his listeners and those who his music inspires. 
     In 2011, Ocean released his critically acclaimed mix tape “Nostalgia, Ultra”, which highlighted his ability to strive independently. His recent projects include appearing in Tyler the Creator’s “She” music video, and he can also be heard on the likeliness of “No Church in the Wild” and “Made it in America”, two songs off of Jay Z and Kanye Wests’ “Watch the Throne” album. Today, you can expect to hear more of Ocean on his debut studio album, which is highly anticipated by his steady growing fan base and audiences worldwide. To keep up with Ocean and all of his future endeavors, including tour dates and record releases, track him online through his Tumblur (frank ocean), his twitter (@frank_ocean), and on the Odd Future website ( Take it from us, this artist is one that is worth keeping up with, and we guarantee that 2012 will be his year to break musical boundaries. Ocean has Fuze It’s stamp of approval.  You can purchase his songs on Itunes (Frank Ocean Itunes).
