Frank Ocean

Veja a lista completa dos créditos de “Blonde”, de Frank Ocean

Papéis de Kanye West e Beyoncé no aclamado disco de Ocean foram finalmente revelados

Era até agora um segredo mais ou menos bem guardado: quem havia ajudado Frank Ocean a trabalhar nas canções de Blonde, álbum há muito aguardado - e aclamado - e editado este ano?

Aquando do lançamento do disco, em agosto, apenas se sabia que Kanye West e Beyoncé, entre muitos outros nomes, haviam estado envolvidos de alguma forma. A lista de colaboradores havia sido publicada na fanzine especial de Ocean, a Boy's Don't Cry.

Um mês depois, a ASCAP - associação que protege os direitos de autor nos Estados Unidos - publicou uma outra lista, a dos créditos de Blonde, onde era revelado que nomes como Tyler, the Creator e James Blake haviam ajudado na composição.

Agora, com a edição física de Blonde a chegar finalmente aos fãs, depois de o músico a ter lançado durante a última black friday, já se sabe exatamente que papéis tiveram todos estes músicos na criação do álbum.

Se Beyoncé esteve encarregue das vozes extra que se escutam em "Pink + White", já Kanye West é co-autor de "White Ferrari" - e não James Blake, conforme se pensou anteriormente. O músico britânico, esse, é responsável por temas como "Solo" ou "Godspeed", participando também em "Skyline To".
