Frank Ocean is just one of those artists we’ll be listening to with our own kids one day. Strange thought, yes, but this is one classic artist. “Sweet Life” (co-written by Pharrell Williams) offers a clear R&B flavor with a jazzy modernized twist, only further proving the crooner’s lyrical storytelling and arrangement abilities. If you drive around on one of those days where the world seems to be on your side while this number plays, you’ll see what I mean. Snag that free download and switch it up. “Swim Good” made me a fan, but “Sweet Life” will keep me one.
Channel Orange arrives July 17th.
