R&B singer Frank Ocean has dropped out of his headlining slot at Coachella after suffering a fractured ankle and a severe sprain. The singer was set to perform on the first weekend of the festival, but due to his injury he was unable to fulfill his obligation. Ocean had already released a new single, “Cayendo” in anticipation of his Coachella performance. The festival has yet to announce a replacement to take Ocean’s place.
Frank Ocean took the music industry by storm with his genre-blending sound and poetic lyrics. Ocean started his career by releasing a mixtape titled Nostalgia, Ultra, in 2011. The mixtape attracted attention from major record labels and propelled Ocean to stardom with its hits “Novacane” and “Swim Good.” After signing with Def Jam Recordings, Ocean released his critically acclaimed debut studio album, Channel Orange, in 2012. The album was a commercial success and earned Ocean six Grammy Award nominations.
Since then, Ocean has continued to push the boundaries of music, blending genres and experimenting with sounds. His sophomore album, Blonde, was released in 2016 and was met with widespread acclaim. Ocean has also collaborated with other artists, including Jay-Z and Kanye West, on their albums Watch the Throne and 4:44, respectively.
Frank Ocean has established himself as one of the most influential and respected artists in the music industry. We hope to see his return to the stage asap!
