Frank Ocean will be releasing his debut album, Channel Orange, next week. But before it’s out, he released another single from it, following “Pyramids.”
“Sweet Life,” which was co-written with Pharrell Williams, continues to push Ocean’s R&B. The intricate mix builds with jazzy electric piano and bass riffs before it hits the warm chorus of synthesized horns. It sounds so intensely classic that it’s hard to believe Ocean is only 24.
Channel Orange, which is definitely one of our most anticipated released of the summer, is out July 17 on Def Jam.
