First off, channel ORANGE is a great record, there’s no denying that. Feel free to checkout our album review of it right this way. To date, the album has moved closed to 200,000 units in the US.
Many attribute that based on the fact of Frank being a great artist and songwriter, while others think him revealing how his first love was man had a huge part to do with his marketing plan.
The same way sex tapes get “leaked,” and rappers start useless feuds right before a big project comes out. So what do you think? Would Frank still have this success if he kept quiet about his sexual orientation, or did coming out to the world put him on this platform?
