Frank Ocean Opens Up On His Sexuality: "My First Love Was A Man"

4 July 2012, 16:02

The 'Swim Good' singer makes the confession in a post on his Tumblr account.

Frank Ocean has sparked a debate over his sexuality after it was revealed that his first love was a man.

The American singer, who has written with the likes of Justin Bieber and Beyonce as well as produced such hits as 'Thinkin Bout You' made the declaration in a revealing post on his Tumblr account.

"4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too," he wrote. "We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide.

"Most of the day I'd see him, and his smile. I'd hear his conversation and his silence. Until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realised I was in love, it was malignant.

"It was hopeless. There was no escaping, no negotiating with the feeling. No choice. It was my first love. It changed my life."

Speculation first gathered about the star's sexuality during a playback for his upcoming album 'Channel Orange' which referenced a love story between two men.

Frank concludes his message with a thank you and a declaration that he feels "free".

"So thank you. All of you. For everything good. I feel like a free man. If I listen closely ... I can hear the sky falling too," he said.

Frank Ocean's album 'Channel Orange' will be released on 17th July.
