5 Tracks From Frank Ocean's 'Blonde' Have Debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 news

Frank Ocean’s winning streak continues. Not only did his sophomore studio album Blonde take the top spot on the Billboard 200 last week, a total of five songs from the project have debuted on the Hot 100 chart.

Billboard reports that the record’s highest charting song is “Nikes,” which landed at No. 79, followed by “Ivy” (No. 80), “Pink +White” (No. 84), “Solo” (No. 96), and “Nights” (No. 98). This is big news for the 28-year-old singer, as he has now more than doubled his total of career Hot 100 charting songs. According to the music publication, Ocean previously had four tracks that landed on the chart—the highest ranking song being 2012’s “Thinkin Bout You” at No. 32.

All this commercial success isn’t exactly shocking. Ocean’s follow-up to his 2012 debut album channel ORANGE has been talked about, and teased, for several years. Once Blonde officially dropped, fans collectively went wild, and ultimately helped the album land the third highest opening sales week of the year, so far.

Ocean’s decision to go independent with this project has also made all its success seemingly sweeter. Because Blonde was not released with his former label Def Jam, the singer has reportedly netted $1 million in sales. Again, he just keeps on winning.
