One of the most anticipated and critically acclaimed albums of this decade, Frank Ocean’s Blonde has firmly cemented itself as a modern classic, and was the first release by the singer on his own label Boys Don’t Cry. Pitchfork have released this short video breaking down the album, from its troubled beginnings to its bizarre online marketing strategy and eventual release. The album represented the coming together of years of the singer playing a “chess game” with the Def Jam label, trying to work in a way that freed him from his contract and allowed him to work on his music in the way he wanted.
