Since popping on to R&B’s radar with “Nostalgia, ULTRA“, Frank ocean has never been afraid to be different in the music industry. Now Frank Ocean is daring to put a face on black male bisexuality on his new album Channel Orange.
Ocean previewed his debut album for the London press recently and more than a few critics caught the bisexual undertones Frank Ocean placed in the songs “Bad Religion” and “Pink Matter” And “Forrest Gump.” Check out the excerpt a review on This Is Max:
“Frank has also opened up about his sexuality on the album, we think it’s brave and admire him for being so honest and sharing such a personal aspect of his life through his music. On the songs “Bad Religion” and “Pink Matter” and “Forrest Gump” you can hear him sing about being in love and their are quite obvious words used like ‘him’ and not ‘her’.
In the world we live in now we can’t see this being an issue or why it should be?? But we do commend him for not continuing a facade and conforming to what a Hip Hop so called rule book expects, we say live your life and be yourself.”
It seems as though the country has gotten a little more comfortable with their sexuality and might be a little more willingly to accept bisexuality more than ever before. However, there sure to be a little backlash for a black man to say he likes anything other than black women. But I believe Frank ocean is strong enough to withstand any backlash about his sexual preference because his music is strong enough to speak for itself. Does Frank ocean’s bisexuality bother you?
