Frank Ocean Quits Music Career To Become An Author?

The star says he could be done with music

We've watched him propel to stardom past his OFWGKTA band members including Tyler, The Creator with his chart-topping hits, but Frank Ocean may already be done with music, just a few months after releasing his debut solo album.

The 25-year-old world class singer and songwriter from Louisiana might not make another album to follow his critically acclaimed Channel Orange, and instead will focus on becoming an author.

The Odd Future singer turned solo has received huge critical acclaim for his debut Channel Orange, earlier this year, but as he enjoys the process of telling stories so much, his next project could be writing a book rather than producing more music.

Talking to The Guardian, Frank said: "Some people focus more on sonics. Some people focus more on story.''

''I focus on both sonics and story, but music sometimes, just music itself, can turn into more of a maths problem,'' he added.

"Storytelling is the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff,'' he continued.

''So much so that I might not make another album. I must write a novel instead. I don't know!"

And when he was pressed further about his only record possibly being his last, he said: "It could be. "It could be it if I flew next week and my plane crashed.

''It could be it if somebody walked along and shot me for my bracelet or something. It could always be it,'' he added.
