More controversy surrounds the release of Frank Ocean’s debut album Channel Orange as last night Frank Ocean released his album a week early exclusively on iTunes. This has upset Target enough to decide they won’t sell the physical copy when it drops next Tuesday July 17th. Target is saying it will not carry the album because of the early release, but Christian Clancy who represents Frank Ocean and his Odd Future group mates is implying it is for another reason. Read the tweet above and I’m sure you can figure out the other reason, this all comes to light after the singer had released his coming out letter last week telling the world he had once loved another man. Not to beat a dead horse, but it shouldn’t matter what someones sexuality is regarding whether you sell/listen to their music. This spells potential trouble for Target if true.
