Frank Ocean Shocked By Reception

[vodpod id=Video.5773322&w=540&h=350&]

Within the last week, Odd Future has been in the studio with the Neptunes, covered Billboard, and the group’s Frank Ocean was featured in The NY Times. Although the crooner kept his studio session with Beyoncé on the hush, he tells MTV that he’s shocked by the ‘net’s response to his Nostalagia, Ultra.

“The first thing that was shocking to me — as a person that grew up with the Internet and knowing how vicious people can be, especially when they are anonymous — early on, there was no hate. There was nothing negative. Everything I was thinking about from the marketing prospective was as far as how to start a fire, because you don’t expect a response, because who the fuck am I? I’m just another guy putting out another collection of music and telling you to download this.”

    “Nostalgia/Ultra” is the new “So Far Gone”, without a doubt…yet waay more interesting musically. Super excited about this guy, and can’t wait to hear more!

    way more left field than so far gone and way more than just cookie cutter r&b/rap like drake, even though i like drake this is much different. drake was big before so far gone came out. no one, heard of this guy and hes doing songs with beyonce the next month? amazing.

    @acapella! word same here!!

    that album is beyond dope.

  • the album is classic, if you haven’t listened to it yet, go ahead and do that. Seriously, dont really come on to vouch for music, unless it’s good, and this really is, and it’s worth the time when the music right now is full of so much b.s. The songs and concepts are cool. Dope artist, looking forward to the future releases.
