Frank Ocean Sales Jump 136% In Two Hours Following BRIT Appearance

 Frank Ocean Sales Jump 136% In Two Hours Following BRIT Appearance

…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.

UK BRIT AWARDS SALES INCREASE TWO HOURS THAT GRAPE JUICE Frank Ocean Sales Jump 136% In Two Hours Following BRIT Appearance

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.

    Wait! When will “Fortune” go gold? Lmao!
    Frank has a gold album even though it was released later with no major hits on mainstream radio. Drake’s “Take Care” went platinum only a month after it’s release & now it’s 2x platinum.
    When will Fist Brown? Nobody is checking for that undercover homo thug.
    It all belongs to Frank & Miguel now. Christina Brown went home empty handed while Drake, Frank, & Miguel all won grammies.

    Why do people need to put everybody against others? Both Miguel and Frank are among the most talented acts to debut these last few years (in fact the two most talented if we talk about R&B, the two most critically acclaimed this year by far). They are nothing alike so I don´t see the comparison
    Congrats to both of them and I wish they really had huge sales (cos yes we can say they are having success but the truth is they aren´t big seleers, it´s impossible for R&B these days it seems)

    Miguel & Frank are both great. I gotta be honest, Iprefer Miguel a tad bit more than Frank though.
    Congrats to the both of them on their new found success though.

    Same here. Frank is pretty raw and authentic about his music tho instead of overproduced. I guess that’s why ppl like him a lot. But I do like Miguel’s voice better.

    TGJ,

    You should make a story about the new “Law & Order” episode that’s about Chris Brown & Rihanna abusive relationship. In the preview they have the Chris inspired character eventually killing the Rihanna one, who refused to leave him.

    Reply

    Eye Candy Replied:

    Hmmmm
    I just seen the article & I must say, the episode looks very interesting.
    This is why I think their relationship will not last. All the references to their dysfunctional relationship will begin to become tiresome if it’s not already. As long as they’re together, people will never forget ’09, especially with her bringing it up every second. Just last week an angry fan threw a bottle at her for getting back with Fist Brown. She is a masochist that loves drama with a preference for “bad boys” because she thinks she can change them, while he is a misogynist with anger problems. Sounds like a match made in hell.

    I’m not impressed. Considering all the press and acclaim he’s had over the past year, his album should be at least 3x platinum in the U.S., not just barely gold. Frank is all hype and no substance. I heard he’s already working on his next album. How is he gonna create attention for it, announce that he’s having a s** change?

    Did not know Frank has sooooo many fans. When a report of a sales increase happens, they all spill out but after his gloriously horrendous performance at the Grammys happened….crickets. As an artist, he’s a bit overrated,as a singer he’s highly overrated, as a performer, ummm. I’ve tried to see what others claim to see for over 2 years, I just don’t see what’s so enthralling or special yet.
