Frank Ocean was set to headline Coachella in 2020, but the event was cancelled due to COVID-19.

I’ll be the first one to admit, Frank Ocean is a lyricist and a vibe that just about anyone should admire. Recently, due to the loss of his brother, it appears as if Frank Ocean won’t be coming out with music anytime soon. 

 But his biggest fan lives in my house: my sister. Junior Luisa Martinez began listening to Frank Ocean in the fall of 2017.

“I missed his last concert right before he went into hermit mode,” said Martinez

“Solo” was the first song Luisa truly fell in love with aside from his iconic piece “Thinking Bout You”. 

“I loved that it was between gospel and rap, a soft rap. And I just love his lyrics. When I listened to it, I felt like I was at the tip of a windy mountain or hill and was looking over a city,” said Martinez. 

Luisa described what she felt when she started listening to his music, it’s almost as if it began to fill her with tranquility. It made her feel full.  Everyone knows music is a form of expression or a form of escape, but I’ve heard Luisa play his music every single morning for the past four years and I’m not sure if I should be concerned or if I should admire her loyalty and love for Frank Ocean, or as she calls him, “Frankie”.

Luisa’s top five Frank Ocean songs are:

5. Pyramids

4. Higgs




Godspeed is about wishing an old lover the best in life. To still fulfill the vows that were once promised between two lovers. Even if the relationship is gone, the love isn’t. 

“Godspeed is my favorite song because deep down we all have that one person we will always have love for, no matter the circumstance. It also makes me forget about all the small things and reminds me of what really matters in life,” says Martinez. 

Frank Ocean is an immaculate vibe. Not that anyone asked, but my favorite Frank Ocean song has to be “Lost”. But without a doubt, Luisa takes the trophy for admiring Frank Ocean.
