Frank Ocean Gives Stirring Performance On “Jimmy Fallon”

Julie Gerstein / July 10, 2012

On last night’s Jimmy Fallon, openly gay R&B singer Frank Ocean offered up his debut television performance. Ocean chose to sing the song “Bad Religion,” off his new album Channel Orange, a moving song about loving someone who can’t love you back. In it, he intones:

This unrequited  love
To me it’s nothing but
A one-man cult
And cyanide in my styrofoam cup
I could never make him love me
Never make him love me

Ocean’s vocals, and his message, are heartbreaking and powerful. And definitely worth a listen.
