Singer-songwriter Frank Ocean became one of 2011’s biggest breakthrough stars with the release of his project ‘Nostalgia, Ultra.’ The highly acclaimed project featured his smooth vocals over ballads, automatically classifying him to be a R&B star. However, the Odd Future singer is not too fond of that label.
“I’ll usually cringe at the R&B label,” he told Italian L’Umo Vogue. “Because it’s like calling it urban… and what the f–k is urban music.”
Aside from his own music, Frank has also made headlines this year after writing for and working with some of music’s finest, such as Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Kanye West.
“Career-wise, this year feels like a montage scene in a movie,” he said about his successful year.
