Following the announcement of his debut album ‘Channel Orange,’ Frank Ocean drops a leak entitled “Pyramids.” The ten minute journey for Cleopatra breaks radio format, changing the rhythm of the song from dark futuristic chords to upbeat funky keys to rough space synths to head jerking bass. Always unconventional, Ocean keeps you enthralled in the varying paces with passionate melodies and smooth transitions.
Frank Ocean’s risky, adverse style is widening the scope of whats is deemed Rhythm & Blues. We enjoy it and ask for more.
