Frank Ocean fans had been eagerly waiting for a major studio album release.

Around the same time Ocean also revealed that he was bisexual. All of that buzz helped him sell some albums because “Channel Orange” debuted at the second spot on the Billboard charts and it grabbed a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year.
