Frank Ocean Enlists André 3000 for 'Channel Orange'

Frank Ocean and André 3000

Frank Ocean presented his Def Jam debut Channel Orange at a listening session in New York last night. The singer-songwriter delivers a soulful set, with features from André 3000 and Earl Sweatshirt.

The OutKast rapper adds his trademark flow to the vulnerable, dark cut “Pink Matter,” on which he raps, “Models are made for modeling, thick girls are made for cuddling.”

Elsewhere, his Odd Future affiliate Earl Sweatshirt pops up on “Super Rich Kids,” which Ocean debuted at his live shows last year. Billboard describes the Mary J. Blige-sampled record as “soliloquies of heartbreak and abandonment, and confessionals.”

Other tracks on the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2011’s Nostalgia, Ultra include “Thinking About You,” “Sweet Life,” “Voodoo,” and “Forrest Gump.”

The BoomBox proclaims, “The Odd Future crooner delivers more than just a solid record; he’s a storytelling genius on the LP.”

Before Channel Orange arrives on July 17, Ocean will embark on a North American tour beginning July 13 in Seattle.
