Yesterday would have been Aaliyah’s 36th birthday. And to honor her, Frank Ocean released a cover of the Isley Brothers' “At Your Best (You Are Love)”, which Baby Girl famously covered. Get into the ballad inside….
Frank Oceanreleased a gift to the masses as he honors one of R&B’s most loved (and sorely missed) stars, Aaliyah.
The “Thinkin Bout You” singer paid homage to Aaliyah, on what would have been her 36th birthday (Jan. 16th), with the release of a soulful rendition of the Isley Brothers' 1976 classic “At Your Best (You Are Love)”. The "One In A Million" singer released her own cover, which appeared on her debut album Age Ain't Nothing But A Number, in 1994.
Frank has been teasing fans with new music via his Tumblr as they patiently await for the follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut album Channel Orange. And this falsetto-laced jewel "You Are Luhh" is just the track to hold them over.
Take a listen below:
As for the production we can expect for his upcoming LP, the "Pyramids" singer is currently hitting the studio with superproducers Rodney Jerkins and Hit-Boy for his sophomore album. No word on when we can expect it to be released but, we're here for it.
