There’s clearly three big hitters fighting it out for the alt-R&B stakes right now. And with The Weeknd and The-Dream both dropping free mixtapes online in the past month, all eyes turn to the next move of Odd Future lothario Frank Ocean.
But he hasn’t responded with yet another Tumblr self-release like his 2010 debut Nostalgia, Ultra, no, Ocean seems to be focussed on taking the mainstream hip-hop scene by storm. I guess it gets no bigger than not one, but two guest slots on the Jay-Z/Kanye collab LP, but here’s Ocean again with a high budget video for track ‘Thinking About You’.
The clip sees a demented tribal hunter kidnap a young couple and features Ocean himself doing a bit of acting in a cameo as a doctor. Maybe his sights are even higher than conquering hip-hop, eh?
So it seems that things don’t stop there, as Ocean has stepped it up a notch by releasing a second video in as many days. The clip is for the Nostalgia, Ultra standout hit ‘Swim Good’ and, man, is it a corker!
