Frank Ocean, AKA, Christopher Edwin Breaux, released "Blonde" on August 20, 2016. This long-awaited album provided fans with a sense of relief as his debut album, "Channel Orange," had released approximately four years prior.
The "Thinkin' Bout You" singer received outstanding feedback in regard to his new body of work. The critically-acclaimed project appeared in numerous articles, including Complex, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Time, etc., and is still enthusiastically discussed amongst fans to this day.
To say that "Blonde" is special is an understatement. It evokes feelings of passion, melodrama, and spirituality, which all blend together to create a beautiful collection of romantic thoughts and experiences.
The album is essentially a portrayal of a lover (Frank) who is grateful for the memories that he and his significant other have shared together over the years.
He entices the listener by inviting them to embark on a psychological journey of overwhelming emotion. Throughout this project, Frank is simultaneously encapsulated by the warmth of nostalgia and the hostility of distress.
Sorrow ultimately becomes the main theme as his mind remains encompassed by heart-rending sensations.
