Frank Ocean's "Thinkin Bout You" Is The 2 Man Weave's 2012 Song Of The Year



Originally I had wanted to come up with anywhere from five to ten nominees and then have you, the readers, vote on which song deserves the title of "song of the year". But after some thought and deliberation I realized that there was only one possible choice.

Frank Ocean represents everything that is right in American in 2012. His album "Channel Orange", along with a beautifully sincere post from his tumblr page,  represented the turning of a new leaf in the r&b genre. No longer should artists feel the need to hide who they really are in fear of alienating potential listeners. Ocean's honesty and sincerity (along with his angelic voice) is the exact reason for his immense new found fame. Frank is an open book, and his words created a masterpiece.

I for one am looking forward to whatever it is Frank brings to the table in 2013. Whether it's in the form of music, words or acting I'm sure it'll be great. Because when you can be honest to yourself, and the whole world, there's nothing left to hide and the end result will be you in your purest form.

Or do you not think so far ahead?
