According to Billboard, Hit-Boy and Rodney Jerkins have gone into the studio with Ocean. Hit-Boy has produced songs like Jay Z & Kanye West’s “Niggas in Paris,” Beyoncé’s “XO,” and Drake’s “Trophies.”

Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins’ production discography includes Destiny’s Child’s “Cater 2 U,” Ciara’s “Got Me Good,” and Michael Jackson’s “Xscape.”

Ocean has also hired a new management team. After firing 4Strikes Management back in June, the “Thinkin Bout You” singer has brought on Three Six Zero to handle his business affairs.

“Frank is an incredibly intelligent and creatively brilliant individual,” said Mark Gillespie, co-founder of Three Six Zero Group. “We’re proud that he felt Three Six Zero was the right home for him.”
