frank-ocean

Frank Ocean has dropped some hints about which famous bands will be inspiring him for his latest album.

Following the success of his debut album, ‘Channel Orange’, the singer mentioned in an interview with MTV that with ‘Orange’ he was inspired by the likes of Stevie Wonder.

But “this time it’s a lot of Beach Boys and Beatles and what-not, so we’ll see how it trickles into the music and the final product. I can’t say much other than that.”

If this second album is anything like his first its gong to be explosive when it hits the market – as such was its success that Time Magazine named him as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World, next to Rap royalty, Jay-Z and Beyonce.

Ocean performed at the Grammy Awards this playing his Channel Orange cut Forest Gump – the performance was well received by artists and music legends for its daringness, as Ocean used a giant video screening with flashing imagery.

His manager; Christian Clancy said that the 25-year-old merely followed his own beliefs when it came to performing.

“This is a guy who has the ability to change things, and for him to change things, he has to follow his intuition,” Clancy said.

“If he doesn’t follow his intuition, then it’s not real. The goal is to trust the guy who wrote the music to present his art, his way — Frank has incredible intuition. He very clearly sees things; my job is to say, no matter how far out it may be, I’m going to trust that.”
