‘Sweet Life’ was one of the songs on Frank Ocean’s debut album channel ORANGE that made a big impact on me. The deeply Soulful (Stevie Wonder) keys that open it, Ocean’s stunningly pristine voice and that infectious groove made a very good first impression. Re-listening to it now, just a few minutes after he released it via his soundcloud reaffirms my initial reaction. ‘Sweet Life’ was co-produced by Pharrell Williams.
Our playback review mentioned the surprising amount of Soul infused throughout the album – listen to this. Some funky sh*t.
channel ORANGE is due out August 17th.
