American singer-songwriter and rapper Frank Ocean has released two studio albums, one collaboration album, two mixtapes, nine singles (including two as a featured artist) and eight music videos. In 2008, Ocean released his first independent mixtape Lonny Breaux, where it was named after his former alter ego. In February 2011, he released his first major project, which is his second mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra. The mixtape spawned two singles: "Novacane" and "Swim Good". "Novacane" became his first single to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number 82.[1] Both singles charted on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.[2] Ocean had three guest appearances on the album Goblin by rapper Tyler, The Creator; the song "She" was released as a single. Ocean had two guest appearances on the Kanye West and Jay Z collaborative album Watch the Throne. Their song "No Church in the Wild", which features Ocean, was released as a single, peaking at number 72 on the Billboard Hot 100.[3] Ocean has also written songs for several artists, such as Damienn Jones ("Cinderella" and "Summertime"), Brandy Norwood ("1st & Love" and "Scared of Beautiful"), John Legend ("Quickly"), Beyoncé ("I Miss You"), Bridget Kelly ("Thinking About Forever"), and Justin Bieber ("Bigger").

His debut studio album, Channel Orange, was released on July 10, 2012. Upon release, the album received universal acclaim (92/100 points) from music critics, who praised the album for its bold lyrical content, and it became the highest rated R&B album on Metacritic (Until D'Angelo's Black Messiah with 95/100 points in 2014), which assigns a normalized score based on ratings from selected mainstream critics.[4] The album peaked at number 2 on both the US Billboard 200 and the UK Albums Chart,[5][6] while it hit number 1 on the US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.[7] It also became the first album in chart history to chart within the UK Albums Chart top 20 solely based on digital sales.[8] Five singles were released from the album: "Thinkin Bout You", "Pyramids", "Sweet Life", "Lost" and "Super Rich Kids". "Thinkin Bout You" peaked at number 32 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Ocean's first top 40 hit on the chart.[1] "Lost" became a top five hit in New Zealand and also achieved chart success in Australia and Denmark.[9][10][11]
