Flashback to 2012, when a 24-year old Frank Ocean dropped his debut studio album Channel Orange. The album was praised for its eclectic musical style, with songs that draw on electro-funk, pop, soul, jazz and psychedelic music.
Gaining global recognition, Channel Orange went on to top both the UK and American R&B charts thanks to tracks like “Thinking About You”, the albums lead single.
Originally intended for Bridget Kelly, Ocean’s “Thinking About You” demo was leaked and went viral. As a result of such a positive response, Frank went back to the studio, remastered and worked on the track some more before presenting the final version on Channel Orange. The rest as they say, is history. Enjoy Frank’s performance of the single live on SNL below and enjoy todays flashback ..
