If you love Frank Ocean’s albums, you might have to let them hold you over for a bit longer. The singer/producer has his eyes set on something else that allows him to be more creative: a novel.

According to CNN, Ocean told The Guardian that storytelling is the most interesting part of making music “so much so that I might not make another album. I might just write a novel next. I don’t know.”
At this point, there’s no need to worry because Ocean is still not only making music for himself but he continues to work with others (there are rumors that he’ll once again be working with Beyonce on her next project).  However, his creative mind doesn’t allow him to stop at just music. The Grammy nominated artist continued by saying:

“…But I do think – it would be f*****g legendary if I just made ‘Channel Orange’ last year, then put out a best-selling novel next year, then, you know, designed an arena in Stockholm in 2014! I don’t know! You just do what you can and you have as much fun as possible, and love your life as much as you can … As long as your intentions are solid, and about growth and progression and being productive and not being idle, then you’re doing good in my book.”

There’s no end to what he might do next but his fans are already chomping at the bit for something new so hopefully, he’ll oblige by dropping a haiku, guest feature or another story on his blog as soon as possible.

    i like his music, but i would not rush to the book store if he wrote a novel. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. He’s great with music and songwriting, but let’s not act like he’s some kind of great philosopher…

      You can’t be serious. Michael Jackson, child you are delusional.

        It’s obvious you can’t comprehend. I said LIKE not IS or WILL BE. His creativity reminds me of Michael Jackson. I am fully aware that Michael Jackson success will NEVER be touched or replicated. Before you are so quick to call someone delusional re-read what was said.

      That was funnier than what that clown just said. I hate when people try to state the obvious when we all see and know the obvious which makes her joke NOT funny. I’ll roll my eyes with you.

    • bluekissess

      That joke was so weak. Try again.

      I know I won’t read anything that has to do with that. He makes me feel uncomfortable, call me homophobic but he just looks and acts weird. Those clothes are stupid tacky and his childish facial expressions lately are confusing.
