Frank Ocean’s ‘Channel ORANGE’ shoots straight to #1 on iTunes

After surprising the world last night with the announcement that his debut album, Channel ORANGE, will be arriving a week ahead of schedule; Frank Ocean is currently sitting comfortably at the top of the charts…

That’s right, Channel ORANGE has gone straight in at #1 on the UK iTunes Chart — as well as in the US, Australia and basically every country which is able to understand the English language.

The news of the early release was announced last night just before the singer’s appearance on US chat show, Jimmy Fallon. Frank took to the stage and stunned the audience and millions watching at home with a riveting performance of Bad Religion, a track taken from the album.

After a phenomenal period of intense media coverage recently (due to the revelations regarding his sexuality), we’re sure Frank is delighted that the album is receiving such positive feedback. And so it should, too – with features from the likes of Andre 3000, John Mayer and Odd Future cohort, Earl Sweatshirt, it’s no surprise the world has snapped up the album as early as possible.

Have you copped it yet? What are your thoughts on it? Let us know…
