It was promoted with five singles, including Ocean's highest charting single " Thinkin Bout You" (number 32 on the US Billboard Hot 100) and a supporting concert tour in July 2012. This album is exactly what music needs right now, Frank Ocean is as talented as he is classy; he raps, he sings and he conveys emotion brilliantly through his work, there's no gimmicks here, it's just pure, understated R'n'B. He was inspired by West and Jay-Z, who prevented their 2011 album Watch the Throne from leaking by announcing several misleading release dates. I really loved this album, not gonna lie, not every track is for me, but the ones that are they do really cause a wonderful commotion inside of me, perhaps you could say, on my soul. As a Hollywood transplant, Frank Ocean is into make-believe – and the question of how you create and deconstruct make-believe.

Shachtman, Noah; Browne, David; Dolan, Jon; Freeman, Jon; Hermes, Will; Hoard, Christian; Lopez, Julyssa; Reeves, Mosi; Rosen, Jody; Sheffield, Rob (July 1, 2022). Ocean also performed "Thinkin Bout You" and "Pyramids" on Saturday Night Live on September 15, the latter of which featured John Mayer on guitar. Instead, channel ORANGE is a meditative voyage through Ocean’s innermost thoughts, no matter how intangible the topics. Channel Orange debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 and sold 131,000 copies in its first week, eventually selling 621,000 copies in the US by September 2014. On its number of shows, Ocean explained that he wanted to provide quality over quantity and said that "it's not about let's do a million things right now.

Crack Rock" depicts a crack addict, [36] likens love to the highs and lows of drug use, [50] and broadly addresses corruption, broken homes, gun violence, [3] and government indifference to rising crack-related deaths. The opening track "Start" is a snippet of ambient sounds, [35] bits of silence, and flickers of noise, [3] including a PlayStation booting up. Brice Ezell from PopMatters wrote that it denotes "the vital midpoint of the overarching narrative", where "the wittier tone of the record's front half gives way to an emotionally dense second half. For "Bad Religion", engineer Jeff Ellis tried to compensate for the few string players they had by arranging seating for a large string section in EastWest's Studio 1 and using a pair of old stereo ribbon microphones to capture the sound.

Ocean's disclosure was received with support from Def Jam and praise from other recording artists and cultural commentators. The record begins with an upgraded version of 'Thinking About You' (now with gorgeous strings), and also features previously-heard tracks 'Forrest Gump', 'Pyramids', and 'Super Rich Kids'. Ocean's manager Christian Clancy responded in a message on Twitter that he found it "interesting" that Target "also donates to non-equal rights organizations", suggesting their decision was influenced by Ocean's coming out. Channel Orange also debuted at number two on the British albums chart with first-week sales of 13,000 copies. maybe it’s just me but this copy has all of the songs (even super rich kids) and is not off centered and has little to no surface noise.

Although it lacked conventional promotion, the mixtape attained a following among listeners and received critical acclaim. Fertilizer" is based on James Fauntleroy's 2010 song of the same name, [37] repurposed on the album as an AM radio jingle and interlude about "bullshit". At the time of writing this every single of the 6 "promo copies" currently listed for sale is actually the bootleg. Originally written in December 2011, it recounted his unrequited feelings for a man when he was 19 years old, citing the experience as his first love.
