    I'm so confused about what's happening. Slash not happening.

    I liked Nikes. Probably going to wait for it to come off exclusive since I cancelled Apple Music.

    Can't wait for this. Official tracklist different to Apple Music? He'd mentioned he made two versions

    Isn't it "Blond"?

    Blonde is the zine version, while Blond is the Apple Music version.

    Hoping Apple ends up carrying/selling the zines in store as it was originally speculated

    This is pretty awesome. I think it lived up to the hype.

    I've just bought it off iTunes (UK) and it's titled 'Blonde', while the huge letters on the artwork clearly state 'Blond'. Is there some sort of other version like that guy two posts up stated?

    After reading some more, I just it's going to be written as "Blonde" on everything except the album art, its being stylized as "Blond"

    Blonde is feminine/ Blond is masculine versions of the word... so I guess (and according to the Super Frank fans) it is done this way to represent both sides of Frank... the masculine and feminine sides

    I've never listened to Frank Ocean before, but I just saw the video for Nikes. Am I missing something? I know a lot of people listen to extremely minimalistic music but I mean, I don't get the praise. What is this?

    Nikes definitely isn't the best place to start with him... especially with the first half of the song being the way it is. I'd say check out Channel Orange to get a good taste. Blonde is very much an evolution from his first album. Instead of sticking to the typical song structure on Blonde he throws caution to the wind and wears his heart on his sleeve (perfect example is Self Control)
