What a past few weeks it's been for Frank Ocean. The Odd Future singer-songwriter shocked everyone with his heartfelt, revealing letter on July 4, and then kept the surprises coming when he decided to release his major label debut album, channel ORANGE, ahead of schedule last week. But through the whirlwind of controversy, backlash, support and excitement surrounding him, Ocean has now proved that staying true to himself and his creativity has paid off. After a week on the market as an iTunes exclusive, channel ORANGE has landed at No. 2 on the prestigious Billboard Top 200 albums chart with a little over 130,000 copies sold. Given its avant-garde release, this debut is certainly one for the books. Grab the digital, standard version of channel ORANGE on iTunes and a deluxe hard copy in a store—other than Target—near you now.
