It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Frank Ocean. The singer, who turns 26 today (October 28), has been awfully quiet lately, but we hope that’s because he’s been camping out in Tahiti for some peace and quiet while recording his second studio album. Wherever he is, we thought we’d switch things up a bit by blowing out the candles with our own wishes — for the fans.
Come Back To Twitter Or At Least Join Instagram
While we understand how overwhelming and sometimes negative the world of social media can be, your tweets are definitely missed. With Twitter rants and overexposure all the rage these days, we’d rather look forward to enlightening 140 character messages like “life rule #99: never google one’s self.” There were brutal revelations: “they lied to us yo, the world isn’t spinning. this is bullsh—,” or Truths By Frank Ocean, like “time, in fact, does not fly when you’re having fun … it jogs.” If that’s asking too much, there’s always Instagram.
Frank Ocean X Andre 3000, Part Deux
Landing a feature from the elusive Andre 3000 is rarer than finding a rapper without a Jesus Piece these days, yet somehow you managed to do that very early in your career. His verse on the “Pink Matter (Remix)”left us wanting more.
And while Three Stacks continues to deny that he’s finally working on a solo album, we’re choosing to believe otherwise. We’re also praying that he’ll enlist your help for the project. Heck, while you’re at it, maybe you can also talk him into making that OutKast reunion album finally happen.
A Release Date For Your Channel Orange Follow-Up
Back in April you revealed that the Beatles, Beach Boys and Stevie Wonder were providing inspiration for your sophomore album. A few months later, Pharrell explained that he’d actually gotten in the studio with you to record a track for the follow-up to Channel Orange. So, we’re just hoping to get a release date soon, maybe by the end of 2013?
"When [Frank] did his first album, he knew who he was, but the world didn’t know who he was,” Pharrell told MTV News. “So now he gets to make an album with people knowing who he is. I went in with him when he first started [on the album], and I’m assuming that his aspirations are the same … to supersede what people know of him, in a good way.”
A Collaboration With Beyoncé
Jay Z has had the pleasure of working with you on Magna Carta Holy Grail, as well as on Watch the Throne, but now it’s time for Queen Bey to have her turn. Granted, it’s not your fault she’s a perfectionist and still wants to put in extra work on her next album, but we hope all of those rumors about you being featured on the project are true. You did great work helping her to write “I Miss You,” but now we’re looking for Frank Ocean singing on a Beyoncé track. Thanks.
Oh, and Happy Birthday!>>
Frank cancelled his upcoming Australia shows bc he’s sick. He ripped his vocal chord so he has to rest his voice. 😔 I hope he gets better and takes it easy>>

Anonymous asked: how did nostalgia ultra change your life? in what way?
i see the world in a whole new light. never thought i could be so intertwined with music. never knew i could relate to a thing so closely. i spent a lot of depressed days holding on to nostalgia ultra. countless nights strawberry swing on repeat was the only calming thing that could put me to sleep.
this may sound a bit dramatic, but its the truth.
i fell in love with this music before i even knew what frank ocean looked like.
then finally reading his thoughts on tumblr, and watching him speak in interviews sailed the ship for me. he is just as great as the music that he makes, so raw, so untainted.
Anonymous asked: What would be your advice for those who want to make a blog for OF and Frank like I?
My advice would be to just be you. If you want a successful blog, be respectful to your followers, but still remain true to yourself. Post what you want. If someone asks you a question, do your research. Don’t just say what you think. Get help when you need it, if you can’t run things alone anymore. I’ve been through a lot of trial and error with this blog. I have been rude to people before. I have done half-assed answers. I have needed help with this blog before. I’ve done it all.
But through it all, give credit to others when it is due.
Admit when you are wrong
And remember. it’s just a fucking blog.
you aint getting paid for this shit.
its recreation, dont feel obligated to anyone, because you are doing this for fun, you are doing this for YOU.
prinsus asked: I know im one of many..but id like to share how much of an impact Frank has had on my life. I know its not much, but his attitude based on how much he's achieved is my inspiration. I want to be like him in the aspect that hes done so much but is just like "its nothin" As well as all that, his music is so angelic and calming it really just makes me genuinely happy and sad (but in a good way lmao). I love him!!
nostalgia ultra changed my life forever. i will never be the same again.>>
