Favorite Quotes from Frank Ocean
“Being singer/songwriter implies versatility and being able to create more than one medium, and R&B artist is a box, simple as that. It is ‘that’s what you do, that’s what you are’, and that’s a little unfair, to me, because I don’t just do that. So I like singer/songwriter because it allows me to move a little bit more freely.” – Frank Ocean
“We were poor. But my mom never accepted that. She worked hard to become a residential contractor – got her master’s with honors at the University of New Orleans. I used to go to every class with her. Her father was my paternal figure.” – Frank Ocean
“Some people focus more on sonics. Some people focus more on story. I focus on both sonics and story.” – Frank Ocean
“Some people focus more on sonics. Some people focus more on the story. I focus on both sonics and story, but music sometimes, just music itself, can turn into more of a maths problem. I guess everything in life is a math problem, but it can be more about an empirical route to getting the symmetry that you want, and this vibe, sonically.” – Frank Ocean
“A friend of mine jokes that I have a painstaking royalty complex. Like maybe I was a duke in a past life.” – Frank Ocean
