This Week in Posivibes: A Frank Ocean Bonanza


It’s not hyperbole to say that everyone is losing their minds over Frank Ocean’s release of EndlessBlonde, and Boys Don’t Cry Magazine. After a four-year wait between albums, this outpouring offers a lot of incredible material to unpack. Blonde’s credit list alone makes perfect fodder for music writers, listing David Bowie, Brian Eno, Kanye West, Jamie xx, Kendrick Lamar, Elliott Smith, Beyoncé, the Beatles, André 3000, and Pharrell, among others. Add in Ocean’s notes on the project and his feelings after its release in his own wordsthe music itself, and the magazine’s wealth of content, and a person needs weeks to digest it all—which is a pretty welcome way to spend the end of summer. Watch the video for the song “Nikes” below.
