Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Frank Ocean (of Odd Future) has been all over the news in recent months for things unrelated to music. Despite the controversy, however, he has forged on, undeterred, with his newest project channel ORANGE. Over choppy syncopated beats, soul-tinged samples, and slippery melodies, Ocean croons effortlessly, which at its best makes him a soaring graduate of the most endearing rising R&B stars of the past. Ocean’s style is refreshing, and there’s a youthful vibrancy to him that is immediately striking, so much so that superstars like John Legend, Beyonce and Justin Beiber have commissioned his unique perspective. At this point Ocean has all the makings of a superstar (a little bit of controversy, charisma, and most importantly, raw talent), and his set at the Metro will be a perfect opportunity to witness the young star’s ascension.
