Singer Frank Ocean's new album, Channel Orange, weaves a tapestry of triumph over unrequited love. The public's acceptance of Channel Orange, with its flood of emotions and quiet angst, helped the album debut at #2 on the Billboard charts.
Announcing his homosexuality prior to the release of 'Orange' was a well-calculated marketing strategy. Now Ocean, 24, is ready to make his next big move -- to Toronto -- where his rumored lover, Drake, 24, was born and still resides.
I mean, who moves to Toronto?
From the New York Times:
For five and a half years he’s lived in this city, since he drove west from New Orleans with $1,200 in his pocket, spending $400 on the way for gas. In that time he’s become an in-demand songwriter and now a rising star in his own right. With that success has come a roller coaster of love and letdown, and that is why, he said, it’s now time to go. Maybe to New York, or more likely to Toronto, which is more car friendly — outside the house were parked two BMWs, one red and newish and one silver and oldish — and which Mr. Ocean has fallen for based on Google searches, even though he’s never been there.
