Jay-Z has praised Frank Ocean as an artist, saying "he has some of the best music that we’ve ever heard."

Earlier this week Alicia Keys hosted her own Twitter Spaces in support of her new double album KEYS, and for part of the discussion, Jay-Z joined in, and he praised Frank Ocean as an artist.

Jay-Z said, "You know, the success has to be like Frank Ocean. Now obviously, you know, he’s super popular, but I wouldn’t say that he’s playing by what were the industry rules. He’s playing by his own set of rules – he’s making music that he wants to make, and it doesn’t fit a format."

"He doesn’t have songs on there that fit pop radio or that make it [to] a billion streams; he just has music that’s better than everyone else," Jay-Z added. "And that’s what has to be the goal going forwards. And I don’t want to say [he’s] better than everyone in terms of competing with music, I’m just saying, like he has some of the best music that we’ve ever heard."
