Frank Ocean is the stage name of American musician Christopher Francis Ocean, who was born Christopher Edwin Breaux on October 28, 1987. Ocean is known professionally as a singer, songwriter, and rapper. His works are known by music critics for featuring avant-garde styles and pensive, elliptical lyrics.

Before joining Odd Future in 2010, Ocean worked as a ghostwriter for many artists.

Frank Ocean Talks About His Sexuality
Frank Ocean claims to have revealed that he is either bisexual or gay in a message he made to his Tumblr. When he wrote the essay, which he claims was meant to accompany the liner notes for Channel Orange, he admitted to having fallen in love. It closes with, “I feel like a free man. If I listen closely.. I can hear the sky falling too.”
Brave, even when the terminology used isn’t crystal clear. Despite the fact that the only female member of Frank Ocean’s Odd Future, Syd the Kyd, is an out lesbian, the group’s anti-gay songs have gotten them in trouble. Stay tuned with us only on Lee Daily
