Hear New Sound: Frank Ocean's "Sweet Life"

It's been a very eventful week for Odd Future member Frank Ocean, who bravely opened up about his sexuality through his Tumblr to the applause of basically everyone living in 2012, and has forced everyone who's criticized OFWGKTA of being socially insensitive to re-think their perspective on the crew's art and intentions. The crooniest of the hip-hop collective is also a few weeks away from releasing his hotly anticipated Def Jam debut Channel Orange, which officially drops on July 17th. To cap off his self-liberating success, Ocean has posted a new track "Sweet Life," a song title that probably sums up just how Ocean is feeling following his personal revelation and the mounting support he's received from friends, fans and fellow musicians in recent days. Co-produced by Pharrell, "Sweet Life" is a warm, syrupy laid back R&B track made for the post-Fourth of July stretch of the summer when Sundays can really get lazy. Take it in below...
