Frank Ocean is among the most interesting R&B singers on the planet. He emerged from shit-kicking hip-hop collective Odd Future with a major label debut that topped the 2012 Pazz and Jop album poll. His openness about a teenage romance with a man put him at the forefront of public discourse well beyond the world of music. And this week he's in the news again. This time, though, it has nothing to do with his personal life or even his music. It's about a song he didn't sing for a Chipotle commercial, the ensuing legal action and the public posting of a very unfriendly check that, so far, he hasn't actually delivered.
