Did Frank Ocean Write Beyonce’s “I Miss You” for Kanye West?

Odd Future singer/songwriter Frank Ocean made a powerful statement of courage and when he came flying out of the closet earlier this week. The 24-year-old music producer — who is responsible for Beyonce’s hit song “I Miss You” — wrote a long, poignant letter on his Tumblr page describing his unrequited love for another man.

Some industry insiders believe Frank Ocean was struggling with his affections for fellow producer Kanye West. It’s worth noting that the industry has rallied together with unflinching support for Ocean, but Kanye, who is Ocean’s mentor, is surprisingly quiet.

“I Miss You” off Beyonce’s fourth studio album, 4 (released June 24 2011) was written by Frank Ocean and Shea Taylor (they reportedly added Bey’s songwriting credit later).

The lyrics in “I Miss You” are eerily similar to the touching words in Ocean’s letter. (I took the liberty of highlighting the similarities for you.)

One line in particular — “It hurt my pride to tell you how I feel” — sounds identical to what Ocean wrote in his letter.

“I sat there and told my friend how I felt. I wept as the words left my mouth. I grieved for them, knowing I could never take them back… He patted my back. He said kind things. He did his best, but he wouldn’t admit the same…

Do you think Ocean wrote “I Miss You” for Kanye?

Read the lyrics after the break.

*(bold emphasis mine)

    I thought that things like this get better with time
    But I still need you, why is that?
    You’re the only image in my mind
    So I still see you… around

    [Chorus]
    I miss you like everyday
    Wanna be with you, but you’re away
    Said I miss you, missing you insane
    But if I got with you, could it feel the same?

    Words don’t ever seem to come out right
    But I still mean them, why is that?
    It hurt my pride to tell you how I feel
    But I still need to, why is that?

    [Repeat Chorus]

    It don’t matter who you are
    It is so simple, a feeling
    But it’s everything
    No matter who you love
    It is so simple, a feeling
    But it’s everything

    [Repeat Chorus]

    It don’t matter who you are
    It is so simple, a feeling
    But it’s everything
    No matter who you love
    It is so simple, a feeling
    But it’s everything

      RIP Teena Marie

      On a starry winter night in Portugal
      Where the ocean kissed the southern shore
      There a dream I never thought would come to pass
      Came and went like time spent through and hourglass

      You made love to me like fire and rain
      Ooh, you know you’ve got to be a hurricane
      Killing me with kisses, oh, so subtly
      You make love forever, baby
      You make love forever

      I ain’t gonna let you go that easy
      You’ve got to say you love me too
      I ain’t gonna let you go that easy
      I’m gonna give it all to you

      Harbor nights, we made love till the morning star
      Then you crooned a song to me on your guitar
      Was it so familiar calling soft my name (Teena)
      Sunlight dancing slowly through loves window panes

      :waves: Intense

    • yallcrazy

      And you made love to me like sugar and spice
      Hush my broken heart, this must be paradise
      Killing me with kisses, oh, so tenderly
      You make love forever, baby
      You make love forever

      I ain’t gonna let you go that easy
      You’ve got to say you love me too

      No, he wrote it for Beyonce that’s why its on her album. Let’s stop being messy. The song is beautiful and beautifully sung.

      Let’s not act like he is the first same sex lover to write love songs. If we were to decipher every song ever written by same sex lovers we’d be here all week.

      In the Key of Mimi before dem babies:

      You look in my eyes
      And I get emotional inside
      I know it’s crazy
      But you still can touch my heart
      And after all this time
      You’d think that I
      I wouldn’t feel the same
      But time melts into nothing
      And nothing’s changed

      [Chorus]
      I still believe
      Someday you and me
      Will find ourselves in love again
      I had a dream
      Someday you and me
      Will find ourselves in love again

      Each day of my life
      I’m filled with all the joy I could find
      You know that I
      I’m not the desperate type
      If there’s one spark of hope
      Left in my grasp
      I’ll hold it with both hands
      It’s worth the risk of burning
      To have a second chance

      No, no, no, no, no, no I need you baby
      I still believe that we can be together
      If we believe that true love never has to end
      Then we must know that we will love again.

      If you are sexually attracted to men and women you are bi, not gay. Or does that only apply to men and not women?

      Can we talk about the fact that everyone is praising Frank Ocean for pursuing a man who was already in a relationship with a woman? Does he get a pass because he’s a gay celebrity, and gay celebrities are the poster children for tolerance?
      ______________________________________________________________
      Aren’t they praising him admitting who he really is? How is he any different than everyone else who pursues the committed? Wouldn’t that question be more appropriate had the man actually cheated on her with Frank? :shrugs:

    • OutsidetheBox

      Yes, you have to prick your finger. I have a very high pain tolerance and needles dont bother me at all but you do have to use your finger. The worse spot imo.

      :lol: Im not a ppl person either. I think like Beyonce. I prolly wouldnt fukk with her if I knew her tho. :lol: Be telling her all the chit wrong with her. You know how we do. #diagnostics :lol:

      I’m sorry that I missed the conversation yesterday. Let’s put this into perspective: a man pursues another man who is already involved with a woman. But, because the man is a celebrity he gets a pass. :tea:

      I’m not bashing him for coming out. I’m saying let’s hold him to the same standards that we hold a Fantasia or Alicia Keys.

    • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

      @ Bibi: why do we bash Alicia Keys and Fantasia for breaking up a woman’s home, but we don’t bash Frank? :shrug:

      Who pursued whom tho?! :thinking:

      Let me go re-read that love letter? (I just want an excuse to reread it because it was so beautiful)

      Vdot, can you bring the letter back in the room?

      Who’s home did he wreck? :popcorn:

    • OutsidetheBox

      I see. :thinking:

      Did he actually “wreck” the home? I thought the dude was like nah son..? Obviously I need to re-read. :lol:

      ______________________________________________
      Because they were actually successful at their homewrecking. Frank was not. Had the object of his affection actually responded to his advances we’d be having a different conversation.

      RIP Teena Marie
      On a starry winter night in Portugal
      Where the ocean kissed the southern shore
      There a dream I never thought would come to pass
      Came and went like time spent through and hourglass
      You made love to me like fire and rain
      Ooh, you know you’ve got to be a hurricane
      Killing me with kisses, oh, so subtly
      You make love forever, baby
      You make love forever
      I ain’t gonna let you go that easy
      You’ve got to say you love me too
      I ain’t gonna let you go that easy
      I’m gonna give it all to you

      OMG…….Its so random you through one of my favs into the mix out of know where…Theres a reason Im drawn to you :think: :love:

      Im just a little bitty particle of hurt and sorrow baybae…I bet you cant name that tune without using google :-)

    • VDot

      Whoever you are. Wherever you are… I’m starting to think we’re a lot alike. Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to. My loved ones are everything to me here. In the last year or 3 I’ve screamed at my creator, screamed at clouds in the sky, for some explanation. Mercy maybe. For peace of mind to rain like manna somehow. 4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile. I’d hear his conversation and his silence…until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating with the feeling. No choice. It was my first love. It would change my life. Back then my mind would wander to the women I had been with, the ones I cared for and thought I was in love with. I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed when I was a teenager. The ones I played when I experienced a girlfriend too quickly. Imagine being thrown from a plane. I wasn’t in a plane though. I was in a Nissan Maxima, the same car I packed up with bags and drove to Los Angeles in. I sat there and told my friend how I felt. I wept as the words left my mouth. I grieved for then. Knowing I could never take them back for myself. He patted my back. He said kind things. He did his best, but he wouldn’t admit the same. He had to go back inside soon. It was late and his girlfriend was waiting for him upstairs. He wouldn’t tell the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years. I felt like I’d only imagined reciprocity for years. Now imagine being thrown from a cliff. No, I wasn’t on a cliff. I was still in my car telling myself it was gonna be find and to take deep breaths. I took the breaths and carried on. I kept up a peculiar friendship with him because I couldn’t imagine keeping up my life without him. I struggled to master myself and my emotions. I wasn’t always successful.

      The dance went on. I kept the rhythm for several summers after. It’s winter now. I’m typing this on a plane back to Los Angeles from New Orleans. I flew home for another marred Christmas. I have a windowseat. It’s December 27, 2011. By now I’ve written two albums. This being the second. I wrote to keep myself busy and sane. I wanted to create worlds that were rosier than mine. I tried to channel overwhelming emotions. I’m surprise at how far all of it has taken me. Before writing this I’d told some people my story. I’m sure these people kept me alive, kept me safe. Sincerely, these are the folks I wanna thank from the floor of my heart. Everyone of you knows who you are. Great humans, probably angels. I don’t know what happens now. And that’s alrite. I don’t have any secrets I need kept anymore. There’s probably some small **** still, but you know what I mean. I was never alone, as much as it felt like it. As much as I still do sometimes. I never was. I don’t think I ever could be. Thanks. To my first love, I’m grateful for you. Grateful that even thought it wasn’t what I hoped for and even thought it was never enough, it was. Some things never are. And we were. I won’t forget you. I won’t forget the summer. I’ll remember who I was when I met you. I’ll remember who you were and how we’ve both changed and stayed the same. I’ve never had more respect for life and living than I have right now. Maybe it takes a near death experience to feel alive. Thanks. To my mother. You raised me strong. I know I’m only brave because you were first. So thank you. All of you. For everything good. I feel like a free man. If I listen closely, I can hear the sky falling too.

      – Frank

      Sandra, comparing Frank to Alicia and Fanny is apple and oranges. You post all the time about true love developing over time and thats what he had with his friend. He seemed like he needed that confirmation that the feeling was mutual, you can’t help who you love and timing might not be perfect…now if he was out and open, it would be a different story, but this was his first love…

      he met a guy when he was 19 and the dude was the same age. They spent a lot of time together and he ended up falling in love, and told ol boy how he felt, but the guy couldnt say the same. But he kept him in his life, because he couldnt love life without him…. i think i got it

      Im happy for Frank :shrugs: I guess Im a bit more liberal than some of yall. Reading deep into his coming out party is not in the cards for me. I wish him well. I know it wont happen in my life time, but maybe one day us Negroes can be like some of the other races. They support eachother, help one another, hand businesses down to their family members…Working in an area with a large population of Armenians has opened up my eyes to so many things. All those stores in the area are ran by family. Family who passed it down or on from one to another. Black folks would rather see the sh*t burn down than pass it on to some one else. Dont nobody do nothing for me…Dont nobody support me…Well bish, why dont you be the first. IJS…Excuse my rambling….
