Frank Ocean is rarely in the news but as of late, he’s been in more headlines than usual. Last week, it was reported that Ocean had sent a cease and desist letter to Travis Scott over the use of his voice on Astroworld. Since then, both Trav and Frank have responded to the news, writing that their issues have since been resolved. La Flame referred to the Odd Future singer as “family,” insisting that nothing is wrong in their working relationship. This summer, his most recent album Blonde was awarded platinum certification as the project that was coupled with Endless continues to be a mainstay in people’s playlists. Now, the artist celebrates another achievement regarding the album.
The Billboard 200 can be a decent measure of how people are consuming the most popular albums in the world. Each week, it’s updated to reflect what people are listening to the most and Frank Ocean’s Blonde has found a home on the list for a crazy chunk of the last two years, now going on 100 weeks on the Billboard 200. The news was circulated by Chart Data, a reliable group of industry insiders.
Congratulations to Frank Ocean on the achievement. Let’s go for another 100 weeks.
