After his crowd aweing performance of Forrest Gump (whether good or bad), Frank is definitely one of the music industries latest go-to writers and singers. Frank has penned records for Jay Z, Kanye West, Beyoncé and more… and is now bringing in collabs from big timers such as Pharell for his sophomore follow-up. In the picture below, you can catch Ocean in the studio with Pharell, set to work for a few joints.
Frank tells us the new album, “It’s another cohesive thing bordering on a concept record again,”. He then goes onto say that he is continuing the second album as a connection to the last song “Golden Girl” on CHANNEL Orange– “It’s this beach scene and I kind of want to extend that feeling into the next record … I’m going to take [my recording equipment] to Bora Bora and work for a few weeks.” Not only is Frank stopping there, he is also set to bring some features and production from Danger Mouse on the album as well.
