Downtown Music Publishing writer Shea Taylor has co-written the lead single “Thinkin Bout You” and “Pilot Jones” on the debut album from Frank Ocean, Channel ORANGE.

The album, released July 10th, 2012 has already garnered critical acclaim. Alexis Petridis of The Guardian rates it 5/5 stars writing, “while it plays, you forget about the chatter and just luxuriate in a wildly original talent.”

Jason Lipshutz of Billboard writes, “this 24-year-old is lapping his peers and setting the blogosphere ablaze because of the fearlessness in everything he does… Ocean’s irrepressible spirit carries all 55 minutes of this opus, shining light on subjects that are not discussed often enough and spinning new webs of ideas around familiar R&B tropes… it’s one of the best albums of the year.”
