Enigmatic crooner and Attitude’s Musician of the Year Frank Ocean turns 29 today. The singer-songwriter and producer has earned himself legions of fans for is heart-breakingly honest music. His four-year hiatus between Channel Orange and follow-up album Blond generated a hysteria that few can match – particularly considering he was unknown outside of r’n’b circles prior to the former’s release. And his searingly honest account of his first, same-sex love shot him to international, albeit perhaps reluctant, gay icon status. And on top of all that, he is one of the most swoon-worthy queer musicians of all time.
So, happy 29th Frank. To celebrate, here are just a few photographic reasons why he is total #boyfriendgoals.
