Frank Ocean Leads 2013 Grammy Nominations

Frank Ocean has been nominated for a staggering six Grammy Awards 2013.These include the most prestigious ­ Album Of The Year, Record Of The Year and Best New Artist 

This continues an unprecedented run of success. First emerging as part of the ground-breaking LA collective Odd Future, Frank Ocean dropped his now seminal mixtape "Nostalgia, Ultra" in 2011. Huge acclaim followed which led to him working with Kanye West and Jay-z on their "Watch The Throne" record, as well as working with Beyonce, John Legend and Alicia Keys. 

His debut album "Channel Orange" was released in July on Mercury/Def Jam and is an awe-inspiring piece of work. Lyrically daring and musically adventurous, it's the work of a man with a singular vision, and has rightly received the kind of praise an instant classic record deserves.
