Tyler, the Creator Says 'Blonde' is the Best Frank Ocean Album
It’s no secret that Tyler, the Creator is one of the leaders of #FrankOceanHive.
Recently. Tyler sat down with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. Of course, Frank Ocean came up as a topic, and Tyler started gushing.
Talking about how they collaborate, Tyler says:
“We’ve never ever in our life planned a collaboration. I’m always in the studio just making sh*t and he’s like ‘where you at?’”
When speaking about how “911” came about:
“’911′ was an accident. I had a whole different melody. [Frank] came in. I was like ‘I don’t like this.’ [Frank] was like, ‘Let me try something.’ He just started saying ‘chirp chirp chirp chirp’ about 400 f*ckin’ times. Ended up keeping the sh*t. He lowekey didn’t want it on there, and I was like ‘you are out of your f*cking mind.’”
During the interview, Tyler also settled what has become a mini debate recently: which is the best Frank Ocean album, Channel Orange or his 2016 album Blonde. (Endless isn’t in the running):
“Blonde is so sick. I always tell him I like that sh*t way better than Channel Orange—and don’t like comparing. But, the looseness of structure and the chords and shit on Blonde speaks to me more than Channel Orange. But I think Channel Orange has a little bit more pop structures, which gets to people a little more.”
