Frank Ocean Gives Aaliyah the Best Birthday Gift

Aaliyah would have celebrated her 37th birthday this past Thursday, and for that, Frank Ocean pays homage to the R&B Princess and soul legends the Isley Brothers’ in new track “You Are Luhh.”

Frank Ocean doesn’t release music often, but when he does, it’s always a treat. The new record isn’t an Ocean original piece, but a lovely cover of “At Your Best (You Are Love),” a song first penned by the Isley Brothers’ in 1976 then adopted by Aaliyah for her debut album Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number.

Frank’s falsetto rendition will easily crack your iTunes Top 25 Most Played in no time. Coming in at around 5 minutes, Frank melts hearts with his ethereal soulful vocals, backed by the sounds of piano. It serves as a strong placement holder to tide fans over until his long anticipated sophomore album, which is slated to be released later this year, we hope. *Insert Emoji Prayer Hands*
