Last week Frank Ocean’s Blond(e) re-entered the Billboard 200 chart that clearly signified that we are all collectively dealing with something. The 17-track album goes down as one the greats, not just from Frank, but as an R&B tape as a whole.
More news has arrived about the 2016 album since it has ficially been certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A. after selling over one million units. Although the milestone was achieved earlier this month, producer Vegyn shared the news Twitter letting us know it’s real.
Frank’s previous album, the beloved Channel Orange, hit Gold in 2013 one year after its release.
In other Frank news, UC Berkeley students will get the amazing opportunity to take a course on Frank’s music to explore his lyrical content in depth. Perfectly dubbed “Brain Like Berkeley,” the course will explore Frank’s “artistic history, upbringing, background, musical influences, artist identity, and the way he challenges dominant social concepts such as toxic-masculinity and gender politics.”
We haven’t heard much from Frank in a minute, but we can only hope it means he’s busy in the studio cookin’ something.
