<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/03/download-frank-ocean-nostalgia-ultra-mixtape"> Frank Ocean's Nostalgia Ultra: strong enough for a man but made for a women. There's a level of ingenuity in creating asexual slow grooves that don't fully get recognized as they should, yet Frankie O. managed to harness the chemical imbalances of R&B to both sides. It's astronomical. It's magic. Give that aggin a top hat and call him the Ghetto Houdini. The accompanying video for "Songs For Women" is such a feat where at first glance it may seem like it only appeals to the alpha male. But the clip ultimately gives the ladies a reason to feel sexy in their own skin as well, subsequently permitting everybody to meet in the middle for the music. Voilà.
