Frank Ocean released his debut album, Channel Orange, on iTunes a week before its scheduled due date, and boy, are we glad he released it early.
With only three features on Channel Orange, Frank Ocean enlisted the help of Outkast’s Andre 3000 for his introspective track “Pink Matter.”
Initially, Big Boi of the duo Outkast said that both he and Andre 3 Stacks, were supposed to be on “Pink Matter,” but Andre wanted to refrain from an Outkast collaboration on someone else’s album.
“What do you think my brain is made for/is it just a container for the mind/this great gray matter/sensei it replied/ what is your woman/is she just a container for the child/that soft pink matter- cotton candy, Majin Buu” sings Frank.
“Since you been gone/I’ve been having withdrawals/you were such a habit to call/I aint myself at all, I had to tell myself nah/ she better with some fellow with a regular job,” raps Andre 3000.
Channel Orange is currently number one on iTunes, so find out what all the fuss is about and download Channel Orange on iTunes here.
