NEW MUSIC: “GOLDEN GIRL” – FRANK OCEAN FT/ TYLER THE CREATOR + “CHANNEL ORANGE” WILL NOT BE SOLD AT TARGET STORES
New tracks are pouring in from Frank Ocean and the latest one is “Golden Girl”. This track is actually a bonus track from his upcoming album “Channel Orange”.
“GOLDEN GIRL. Reminds Me Of Being In Hawaii Right Now. With A Freckled Faced One. Yah,”
tweeted by Tyler the Creator.
Take a listen for yourself and tell us what you think.
Speaking of Frank Ocean’s album Target has decided not to speak on it at all or sell his album “Channel Orange.” Although Target denies it had anything to do with Ocean recently expressing his sexuality, so this is what they had to say,
“At Target, we focus on offering our guests a wide assortment of physical CDs, so our selection of new releases is dedicated to physical CDs rather than titles that are released digitally in advance of the street date.”
And you know someone had to take to twitter, what other way to expose a company than on social media.
“Target has refused to carry Frank’s album because of iTunes exclusive. Interesting since they also donate to non-equal rights organizations,
tweeted Christian Clancy, Ocean’s manager, which he later deleted.
This official statement was then released to Billboard,
The claims made about Target’s decision to not carry the Frank Ocean album are absolutely false. Target supports inclusivity and diversity in every aspect of our business. Our assortment decisions are based on a number of factors, including guest demand.
Target has a longstanding tradition of supporting music and artistry that reflects the diverse landscape of American culture. Our history of partnering with diverse artists includes recent partnerships with a variety of musicians, such as Ricky Martin, B.o.B., and Gloria Estefan.
What do you think? Is target discriminating against Frank Ocean or is it just business?
