Transcript of Frank Ocean
Christopher Breaux otherwise know as Frank
Ocean is a R&B singer-songwriter born in Long
Beach, California on October 28,1987. He grew up in New Orleans, but moved to Los Angeles in his late teens to pursue a career in music. Frank started out his career ghostwriting tracks for pop stars such as Justin Bieber and Beyoncé, but soon achieved fame as an artist.
Frank had become a blockbuster artist because of his
hit album "Channel Orange". When he was around five years old, he and his family moved to New Orleans,
Louisiana. He grew up around many jazz artists and soundtracks from old artists like Celine Dion, Anita Baker, and The Phantom of the Opera soundtrack.
Jay Z and Kanye West
Shawn Corey Knowles-Carter known as Jay-Z, is an American rapper, record producer, entrepreneur, and occasional actor. Jay Z was born on December 4, 1969 in Brooklyn, New York. He is one of the most successful hip-hop artists in America.
Kanye Omari West is an American musician, film director and fashion designer. Kanye West was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia,where he lived with his parents. When he was three years old, his parents divorced, and he and his mother moved to Chicago, Illinois.
How he was influenced by Jay Z and Kanye
Frank Ocean's latest album "Channel Orange" wouldn't have been a hit without the help of Jay Z and Kanye West. Frank was featured on Jay Z and Kanye West's album and later said that he was inspired by their Watch the Throne album release strategy. He was inspired to do the same thing as Jay Z and Kanye and let his music speak for itself and to not be in a situation where his album leaked. This allowed his album to become a hit. Frank was also inspired to try new music structures making music like he had never before. He is determined for his next album to be as big of a hit as Channel Orange.
Hit Tracks by his Influences
Frank Ocean couldn't have gone through any of this without all the love and support from his fans. His fans were the ones who encouraged him to keep trying when he felt like he was being judged for who he was. His fans helped him be who he is today by supporting him the whole way which is why we made his fans Frank's third influence. We don't think that any artist could go through all the hate and paparazzi without their fans. Frank's fans mean everything to him and they have inspired him to continue doing what he loves and what he was meant to do.
Every artist has influences including Frank Ocean and for most artists it would be hard for them to pursue their career without those influences. For Frank he would not be here today without the help of his influences. The artists who influenced him to be who he is today are Jay Z, Kanye West, and since he doesn't have a third artist influence, his fans are also his influence.
