Frank Ocean "Channel Orange" MOST Important Album Since Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill

Listen to some of the tracks from the new album below... Will radio take notice? 

"Channel Orange" Is The MOST Important R&B Album Since "Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill" by BRITTANY LEWIS/Global Grind

Channel Orange serves as a vivid channel with HD details of Frank Ocean's deepest thoughts and rawest emotions. The title Channel Orange is reportedly the color Frank saw when he first fell in love, but the color orange is also a power color said to inspire creativity and boast the power to heal.

Besides the tracks receiving overwhelming approval: "Pyramids," "Bad Religion, "Pink Matter" and "Forrest Gump," tracks like "Sierra Leone" grab my attention.

"Sierra Leone" seems to be the tale of a teenage love affair that describes Frank's irresponsibility, but metaphorically describes him being in possession of her "preciousness" to that of the African nation of Sierra Leone's precious minerals.

The love ballad "Sierra Leone" is a stark contrast to the homosexual expressions vocalized in "Forrest Gump," and seems quite blissful compared to the bittersweet-ness of the self-proclaimed realest love.After listening to his track "Thinkin Bout You" (released a little over a year ago) a little deeper, I realized that the lyrics weren't about the heterosexual love affair I constructed in my own single-woman thoughts, but are about that faithful summer when he was 19.

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
