Jermaine Dupri Sees Frank Ocean As R&B Music Savior
Jermaine Dupri fell (very) short of calling Frank Ocean the savior of RnB music in a recent post he did on his official site Global 14 (too bad Ocean does not see himself as an R’n'B star).
The producer explained that he hopes that Mr. Ocean’s debut album “Channel Orange” sells at least 200,000 units in its first week for the following reasons.
-Music executives will pay more attention and promote R’n'B singers (R.Kelly’s “Write Me Back” was a solid piece that needed a better push).
-With Ocean having practically no screaming rappers talking about bling, hoes and cash – Dupri prays that singers will be free to simply put out R’n'B only songs.
Jermaine’s letter is just one of the many positive responses that the crooner has been receiving from his peers.
