Frank Ocean – Thinking About You

Frank Ocean - nostalgia, ULTRA (2011)

This sounds like it should be Canadian hip-hop man of 2011 Drake – but it’s New Orleans-born Frank Ocean, who’s just been nominated in the BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll alongside the likes of Friends and Michael Kiwanuka.

Soulful R&B that’s the opposite of hip-hop collective Odd Future he joined in 2011, he’s been writing for artists as massive as John Legend and Beyoncé. He released a mixtape in Feb 2011 titled nostalgia,ULTRA on his Tumblr, independently of his label Island Def Jam.

Here’s an edit of the track by another current love of mine whose debut release is among my top albums of 2011 – SBTRKT.
