…and Frank Ocean‘s UK chart reign just won’t let up!
In what can only extend his reign as the world’s leading R&B male, the ‘Pink Matter’ vocalist has seen sales of his music rise by 136% in the UK…in the space of two hours.
Find out why below…
Following his appearance at last night’s BRIT Awards, the British Phonographic Industry tracked sales of all entertainers linked to the event, preempting a sales rise for these acts in the market in the hours that followed.
However, while expecting a minor jump in units sold by all involved, very few expected Ocean’s sales to soar as much as they did- rising by 136% in just two hours, forcing his debut album ‘Channel Orange’ back into the iTunes Top Ten, securing it the #8 spot.
His success in the nation last night comes after his US sales sky rocketed by 120% in the hours that followed his performance at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, and before the release of his hotly anticipated sophomore album- which he is currently crafting via Def Jam Records.
This, being the record label also home to ‘We Found Love’ singer Rihanna and ‘Runnin Blind’ star Elijah Blake.
