Frank Ocean “Provider”

When you listen to Frank Ocean do you enter a delicious dreamscape like I do? The Willy Wonka of music delivering such sweet ear candy. His new single “Provider” showcases his progressive flare on Hip Hop/R&B. Starting out with only smooth e-piano chords and a divine lead vocal, the melodic and harmonic environment are constantly changing with the use of free stream of consciousness lyrics and intriguing chord changes, but that’s nothing new. His constant use of simplistic instrumentation leaves space for an immense amount of enchanting effects throughout the song. Even the beat that falls in at 0:28 is unexpected. Frank’s consistent surprise tactics are stunning! Check out “Provider” if you haven’t yet. You won’t regret it.
