There is no denying that Frank Ocean is the Man of the Moment—from the unveiling of his much-discussed letter last week, to the surprise release of his Def Jam debut, channel ORANGE earlier this morning, his name is simply unavoidable. As the musical guest on “Latenight with Jimmy Fallon” this morning, Frank made his debut televised performance one to remember.
Performing “Bad Religion,” backed by The Roots and a string orchestra, Frank has proven himself worthy of all of the buzz and anticipation that he has garnered since releasing last year’s nostaliga ULTRA. Raw, impassioned, and vulnerable, Frank’s performance revealed just why he is one of the most celebrated emerging music acts in the industry today. Am I the only one that feels as if we are witnessing the career beginnings of an artist that will be hailed as one of the greats one day?
