Frank Ocean
Title: TBA | Release Date: TBA

Singer/songwriter and Odd Future affiliate Frank Ocean ( @frank_ocean) self-released his mixtape Nostalgia, ultra. on his Tumblr ( frankocean.tumblr.com) early last year. The set spawned the top 20 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs hit "Novacane" (No. 17 peak) and helped Ocean land appearances on Jay-Z and Kanye West's chart-topping "Watch the Throne," work writing for Beyoncé's "4" and the cover of the Fader. Little is known about the sound and shape of the New Orleans native's coming debut except that West reportedly asked to work on it, a request Ocean has so far denied.
