Frank Ocean (real name Christopher Breaux) was born 28th October 1987. Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, he moved to LA after joining the hip-hop group Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA) and subsequently went on to sign a record deal with urban pop label, Def Jam.
Although Frank Ocean was signed to a major label, he ended up releasing his debut album “Nostalgia” through social networking site Tumblr in July 2011, after being unhappy with the way things were going progressing at Def Jam. The album features Frank Ocean’s sultry R&B voice over a number of well known hits including The Eagles - Hotel California with “American Wedding” and a cover of Coldplay’s “Strawberry Swing”.
He is also known for co-writing huge hits for superstars: Justin Bieber, Brandy, Beyoncé and John Legend.
