Singer-songwriter Frank Ocean is crushing the R&B competition. Despite having no radio single, Ocean is debuting at number two on the Billboard charts.
Frank Ocean’s debut album Channel Orange is estimated to sell 130 thousand digital units. This is a feat considering he released the album as an iTunes exclusive a week before the hard copy dropped. With Frank selling the amount projected, he immediately is placed on the level of R&B’s hottest artists like Chris Brown. Chris Brown’ latest project Fortune sold135k in its first week with the help of heavy promotion and a few singles. Frank Ocean is selling the same amount digitally with no single and no promotion.
