Frank Ocean Readies Possible Def Jam Debut "Channel Orange" For July 17th Release; Drops Video Teaser

(AllHipHop News) Def Jam recording artist and Odd Future member Frank Ocean has officially revealed a title and date for what many believe to be the singer's Def Jam debut album, Channel Orange.

The singer released a video teaser on his Tumblr last night (June 7) that features what many believe to be a new song from Channel Orange and concludes with a date of July 17th.

If Channel Orange does turn out to be Ocean's Def Jam debut, it will drop in what is becoming a crowded, but anticipated month for the label, who will also be releasing Nas' tenth studio album Life Is Good on the same date.

Two weeks later, Rick Ross will be releasing his fifth album, God Forgives, I Don't, on July 31st.

Despite his appearance on Odd Future's March-released The O.F. Tape Vol. 2, Channel Orange will be the first full-length project from Frank Ocean, who is following-up last year's critically acclaimed project, Nostalgia. ULTRA.

Frank Ocean, who was featured on two of Watch the Thrones' tracks, is also said to have worked with Jay-Z at the tail-end of last year on the MC's upcoming new solo album as well.

Channel Orange will be released on July 17th.
