Frank Ocean Performs “Bad Religion” in Amazing Jimmy Fallon TV Debut (WATCH!)
R&B star Frank Ocean made his TV debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, following his much-hyped announcement that he was in love with another man. Frank performed “Bad Religion” backed by strings and eight members of Fallon’s house band, The Roots. Check out the video:
Frank Ocean fans have even more to celebrate: Frank’s debut album Channel Orange will be streaming online for the next 24 hours on Frank’s Tumblr account. The album was also made available on iTunes, where it shot to #1 within an hour.
Frank, a 24 year-old who has written for Beyonce and collaborated with Kanye West, garnered even more buzz in a recent NY Times profile, which compared him to Stevie Wonder, Prince and Pharrell Williams.
The rising star’s already got a million followers on Twitter – and he seems a bit overwhelmed. “trying to figure out what to say to a million people,” he wrote on July 7. “shit, uhh world peace haha.”
Luckily, he seems to have a good sense of humor about the whole thing, including his “coming out”: “If you’re are still hating, I’d like to reminds you that I COULD STILL STEAL YOUR GIRL IF I WANTED TO,” Frank wrote.
