Frank Ocean for all! The singer’s album Blonde is finally on Spotify after what feels like ages, but is really four weeks.
Before Friday, Ocean’s second studio album had been streaming exclusively on Apple Music (and available for purchase on iTunes). The highly-anticipated record was released last month, four years after Ocean’s debut and following months of speculation about its eventual release. Writing for EW, Eric Renner Brown gave the album an A, noting “Ocean shows himself to be one of pop’s foremost innovators. Like Channel Orange, Blonde has a stunning array of sounds: There’s cinematic soul (the Beyoncé-aided ‘Pink + White’), serene gospel (‘Solo’), outré electronica (‘Pretty Sweet’), steamy blues (‘Self Control’) — even spoken-word segments (‘Be Yourself’).”
