New Music: Frank Ocean f/ Tyler, the Creator – ‘Golden Girl’

Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean spreads some sunshine on “Golden Girl,” a bonus track on the physical edition of his hot-selling album channel ORANGE, in stores July 17. The R&B sensation finds the perfect woman, who puts a smile on his face.

“You’re 24k, you make it bright when it’s gray,” sings Ocean over the breezy beat, which features a verse from his Odd Future comrade Tyler, the Creator.

“GOLDEN GIRL. Reminds Me Of Being In Hawaii Right Now. With A Freckled Faced One. Yah,” tweeted Tyler.

    I just love how Ocean uses his vocals like an instrument. For me, that sets himself away from what everybody else in the world of contemporary R&B.

    @V, EXACTLY! All these other male singers are generic compared to him. Who do you know that can right a love song from a Crackhead’s point of view?!

    Even when he sings about sex is way above the generic easy sex metaphor stuff. He sings about LOVE.

    Given that you’re so enlightened, why won’t you go right ahead and explain the lyrics, Einstein?

    Tyler and & Frank have the best Collabs. I was initially surprised when I saw Frank’s Tracklist and Tyler wasn’t featured. and Tyler made the beat of this song for all that said he sucks

    [Reply]

    Miszi Reply:

    @John, Just because he made the beat doesn’t mean he isn’t bad at rapping or that this particular verse wasn’t bad. In my own honest opinion he should stick to making just beats but everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

    @Miszi, actually, tyler produced most of his album goblin…which sucked. yet he rapped on features like martians vs goblins and trouble on my mind and murked those. so he’s better at rapping.

    Tyler’s Verse was awesome. Glad he got on the album. The low pitched voice he used fit perfectly, as wel as his beat!

  13. Miszi

    I like it except for the rap at the end.

    Tyler scares the hell out of me. That guy … it’s like his lobotomy was botched or something.

    Man fuck Target for not carrying the album next week. Homophobics.

    [Reply]

    Miszi Reply:

    @Stephen, It might be about sales, Frank is a new artist and he had exclusive for Itunes a week before release. Don’t jump to conclusions.

    [Reply]

    Stephen Reply:

    @Miszi, I’m not. Wayne did the same thing with “I Am Not A Human Being” and Hov & Ye did it w/ Watch The Throne. Target still sold those albums.

    [Reply]

    Miszi Reply:

    @Stephen, Well I’m not from America so I couldn’t have known that Target still sold Watch The Throne and Wayne’s album. It probably is about Frank’s sexuality then. My bad, hope you ain’t mad. I was just afraid people will start using “homophobia” as an excuse for everything that is done not in favour of Frank. It often happens and it’s not fair, I’ve already seen a couple of comments acussing people of homophobia just because they didn’t enjoy the album which btw is really good imo ;).

    Stephen Reply:

    @Miszi, It really is, best R&B album of the year.

    @Stephen, Target is not only homophobic, but they’re also RACIST. They sell sock monkeys and sock money apparel and seem to “depublicize” black musicians’ albums.

    Stephen Reply:

    @hero, Exactly

    [Reply]

    William Reply:

    @hero,

    Hilarious! Sock monkeys? Meanwhile, we’ve got ignorant Black artists calling one another the N-word but people like you holler racist when a non-black does it.

    Morgan Reply:

    @Stephen, I think homophobia is what it boils down to as well. Target has, in the past, donated $150,000 to anti-gay politics. Also, they didn’t start bitching when Hov & Ye released WTT to iTunes. Their shelves were stocked! Oh, well … more money for Best Buy. I prefer them anyway.

    Stephen Reply:

    @Morgan, Me too. I prefer Best Buy anyway.

    William Reply:

    @Morgan,

    Homophobia? Wait a minute.. Frank is bisexual, not gay. Your accusation does not compute.

    [Reply]

    Morgan Reply:

    @William, I realize that. But Target is anti-LGBT, PERIOD.

    [Reply]

    :) Reply:

    @Stephen, Does it even matter whether it came out a week early on iTunes? That’s not a good enough reason for Target not to sell it. Best Buy, here we come!

    i agree with tyler i think the song would be better if they left his voice sounding how it normally does still its an awesome song

  20. Child Please

    Tyler is GARBAGE..smh

    This song is phenomenal!!! Even though Tyler’s voice was pretty vulgar, I thought it was still good. I’m a big fan of both so great job!!!!

    people that dont think tyler is good are either not smart enough to understand his lyrics or hype beasts

    This whole album along with its artist are way too overrated.

    [Reply]

  25. AAIM4GREATNESS

    Wow. Does it matter if it goes on iTunes first? Target still gonna make money anyway, so they need to calm their tits. Most people are gonna download it from the internet anyway, aint nobody got time to go up to freakin Target and pay $15 on somethin we can get for free through the internet.

    [Reply]

  26. flysly

    Love it. def has a stevie wonder feel to it. it’s calming

    [Reply]

  27. EHHHH

    Target does not have to carry an album if they don’t want. It’s a business decision. Obviously Frank is not effected since his album is breaking all these expectations. Do yall call Tyler homophobic. Nobody has to like bisexuality.

    Tyler wreaks my nerve. I hate his voice.
