Audio: Frank Ocean "Try"
Every new Frank Ocean leak seems to be less weird than the last and more into conventional R&B territory–case in point, “Try” which is not so different melodically from a Beyonce jam like “Irreplaceable,” say, even if the theme and scale are. But that is good because we already know he can do the different, more idiosyncratic stuff brilliantly. So hearing these more straightforward jams surface on demo–with his highly personal writing still intact–is oddly reassuring. But still leaves you wondering which sides of him will see next–the Odd Future side? Or the writing-for-Beyonce side.[audio:http://www.okayplayer.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Frank_Ocean-Try.mp3|titles= Frank Ocean “Try”]
