Frank Ocean the 23 year old New Orleans sensation has garnered a lot of press recently from his association with the hip-hop group of the moment, Odd Future. The singer/songwriter has recently released the video for one of his solo endeavors – “Novacane.” The entitled track is off his mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra which will be re-released through Island Def Jam this summer.
Frank Ocean sings about meeting and wooing a dentist-to-be over a smooth, pulsating beat. More important, however, is the visual accompanying the song. Staying true to the OFWGKTA tradition of quirky, slightly disturbing music videos – we see Frank Ocean’s face physically ebbing and flowing in the same way one feels when injected with Frank Ocean – Novacane novocaine at the dentist. The ending offers a fun surprise, as well.
