We got a Thanksgiving treat from Frank Ocean in the form of a new song called “Memrise.” Now he’s back with a cover of The Isley Brothers 1976 classic “At Your Best (You Are Love).” It could be a way to honor Aaliyah’s birthday yesterday, as the song featured on her debut record as well. Ocean’s version is ridiculously gorgeous. Quiet and clean, with just a soft piano and his amazing vocals preaching his love to the positive motivating force within his life.
Great song. And now the anticipation of Ocean’s third album will be running even higher, if you can believe that. It’s already been two and a half years since channel ORANGE dropped, and that’s a lifetime in the music industry. I’m hoping he puts out a new full-length, or at least an EP, before summer hits.
