So I awkwardly go through off and on periods of really getting into Frank Ocean and now is one of those times. I first heard of him two summers ago when his album came out and everyone and their mom loved him. His first single “Thinkin Bout You” was my favorite song for a while until I decided to listen to his older stuff.
Now my favorite song by him is “Swim Good” from his older released stuff. It’s funny I like it because, fun fact, I don’t know how to swim so I listen to it in a weirdly ironic way. As with all of Frank Ocean’s songs I never know what they’re talking about because his lyrics are so abstract but I still appreciate it.
Last night was the Grammys on CBS and, since none of my favorite artists were performing, I kept watching on and off while doing homework. The show was ok and had a couple of noteworthy highlights. For me, the best performances were from Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5 & Alicia Keys. My favorite presenters were Beyoncé (obviously) and Ellen Degeneres.
There were a couple of surprises in terms of winners for awards. I was surprised Frank Ocean did not win Album of the Year. I was also surprised to see Adele still snatching in some awards after she dominated last year. The awards show this year made me anticipate the show next year since there will be more artists I like/know in attendance so I can’t wait!
The performance of the night.
