In the days prior to Frank Ocean releasing his debut album, Channel Orange, his musical career was overshadowed by an open letter he posted online revealing that the first love of his life had been a man.

And Channel Orange, which was released digitally July 10, 2012 and will be available in physical stores July 17, is a very solid album. It's strongest attribute is Ocean's knack for uniquely creative lyrical narratives. He brings a fresh perspective to the music world that's much needed these days, particularly within the R&B genre, which is currently overloaded with cliched, cookie cutter and copycat vocalists.
