11. Nikes (Blonde, 2016)

“As for the album version, to take in the high pitched vocals is glorious, especially when his sentimental falsetto parts at the end take it too high. And funny, too, an audacious way to open the album. Frank’s return to playfulness since his Odd Future years.”

10. White Ferrari (Blonde, 2016)

“This whole album, to me, is exactly what love and heartbreak sound like, and this song is the epitome of that feeling. When I hear this song, I instantly get goosebumps. even when I’m talking bout this I got goosebumps.”

9. Forrest Gump (Channel Orange, 2012)

“This song isn’t that complicated lyrically but features a bunch of innuendos. First is that it is in fact loosely based on the album it is named after, 1994’s “Forrest Gump”. And Ocean seems to take on the role of an undisclosed character in the film itself. In other words, he is singing to and about “Forrest Gump”.

8. Bad Religion (Channel Orange, 2012)

“One of my favorite songs by Frank, his vocals in this track is amazing and he sings with so much emotion. This song is not one of those dirty and immature songs, it’s so elegant and rich.”

7. Pink Matter (Channel Orange, 2012)

“If you want to be able to hear frank ocean show off his voice then this is your song. Didn’t make the radio but its one of his best songs by far”

6. Swim Good (Swim Good, 2011)

“Such a cool song — mellow and upbeat at the same time. Catchy refrain and everything. This is a great album as a whole. A great mellow song. I love the bassline and the lyrics are different from what is out there right now.”

5. Thinkin’ ‘Bout You (Channel Orange, 2012)

“Makes me feel like this messed up world could be the calmest thing ever for 3 minutes and 21 seconds Such a chill song. Always puts me in a good mood.”

4. Lost (Channel Orange, 2012)

“If you ever listen to one Frank Ocean track, let it be this one. It’s all here: the references to a hedonistic but unfulfilling lifestyle, the feeling of alienation, the lust, the gorgeous production, and the divine vocals. Before Frank went ahead and made a conceptual Art Pop masterpiece, he made sure to slay the fuck out of the Pop formula, and there’s no better example than this track.”

3. Self Control (Blonde, 2016)

“Only song that’s ever made me want to hold someone and think about someone else at the same time. Easily one of the most heart-wrenching and beautiful songs I’ve heard”

2. Nights (Blonde, 2016)

“The first song that got me into Blonde, so much emotion packed into one song. Issa vibe and the beat switch is heavenly. One of the most dynamic songs ever. Each time I listen to it I discover something new.”

1. Pyramids (Channel Orange, 2012)

“Lyrically, this is one of the most complex songs I’ve ever heard from Frank Ocean. It’s a journey from Egypt to now, where we go from the height of Cleopatra covered in gold before her immediate fall, to the strength and yet ownership of a female prostitute. Cleopatra is approached as a “jewel” of Africa, but it’s not a good approach; it’s a man fawning for his possession, as she chooses someone else instead of this one person, which leads to her doom. It’s a slow reveal, as it looks like it’s cheetahs looking for her, but instead it’s cats and serpents sent to kill her, just because of a jealous guy.”
