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

Published: Thursday 21st Feb 2013 by David

…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.

    • Eye Candy February 21, 2013

      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.

  5. TurntUp4Cici February 21, 2013

    • FentySoSnatched February 21, 2013

      Oh f*** off would you. Just f*** off. Rihanna has more top tens than your lying fave. Still acting like she carried that baby when even Oprah was throwing sly shade at her because her lies were so obvious.

    • Music Soul Harmony February 21, 2013

      BYE. Beyonce has showed her bare pregnant belly multiple times in pics and in the documentary. U idiots just want to believe anything cuz you cant stand her but okay.

  13. FentySoSnatched February 21, 2013

    Frank. IS. THE.KING.OF. R AND B and you will all deal.

  14. Mother Mariah February 21, 2013

    Sad that they are giving him all of these accolades simply because he admitted to liking the D! Queen of overrated!

    • RICHANDBLACK11 February 21, 2013

      I don’t think so
      Frankchelle album is
      great , very deep
      album no shade all light.

  15. JOHNVIDAL February 21, 2013

    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)

  16. KellyKDL February 21, 2013

    My TGJ sisters, why are we coming for Miguelanisha like this. Yall know you love Adorn.

    • RICHANDBLACK11 February 21, 2013

  18. Draggin4MrsCarter February 21, 2013

    Where is Gilberto. I miss him.

  19. Eye Candy February 21, 2013

    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.

    • Music Soul Harmony February 21, 2013

      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.

    • Eye Candy February 21, 2013

      Yes, Miguel’s voice speaks to me more.

  20. POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) February 21, 2013

    a piece chile.

  22. My Forehead Tho February 21, 2013


    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.

    • Eye Candy February 21, 2013

      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.

    • Vegas Girl February 22, 2013

      I thought it was the “Chris” character that ended up dead?

  23. ladylady February 21, 2013

    Suck Chris Brown. You will *NEVER* see sales like this.

    • CBreezyGurl February 21, 2013

      Chris has already seen sales like this, and better. Frank will never see Chris’s best numbers.

    • SlayDeleAdkins February 21, 2013

      Honey, Frank will never sell 3 Million copies of one album like Chris has! So have severeal!!

  24. DD1G February 21, 2013

    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?

  25. SlayDeleAdkins February 21, 2013

    King of R&B??? B**** Please!! ——–> _/

  26. SBC19 February 21, 2013

    F*****’ homosexual. Sorry but I don’t rock with dudes who suck other mens penises.

  27. CHUDDS February 21, 2013

    Yall are phony as s***. Now everyone’s a Frank fan because he’s “slaying”. GTFOH. I’ll take Miguel anyday. Oh yeah….and for someone who doesn’t want to be referred to as R&B, he surely accepts awards in the R&B category!

  28. Vegas Girl February 22, 2013

    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.
