I'm a hoarder of pretty epic proportions when it comes to digital artifacts of music I dig. One of my favorite artists is Frank Ocean, the enigmatic R&B superpower whose fans have experienced both droughts and floods of new music during his short—yet impressive career as a recording artist.

The following is a complete list of things you should have in your collection if you are a Frank Ocean super-fan. Releases will be listed in categories with sub-headings in chronological order to the year where possible.

Songs You'll Find on YouTube & Soundcloud That I'm Almost Positive Are Not By Frank Ocean

Go with your gut on these.


This archive is the result of years of searching, researching, re-researching, and collecting the links and tracks that make up Frank Ocean's musical history. If you have anything that's not included on this list, please reach out to me. I'd love to hear it.

Special thanks to the users of KanyeToThe.com and reddit.com/r/FrankOcean for all of your sleuthing as well. I did my best to credit some of you above, but I appreciate every single person that contributes to the preservation of Frank's extended catalogue and related media.

For more of my writing on Frank Ocean, check out this look back at the four years prior to Endless and Blonde. In this, I go into what we expected, what we got, and what's still lingering in the ether.
