You can’t start the fall quarter without already having a favorite off of Frank Ocean’s “Blond“. If you don’t have one yet, start with “Ivy“, a track that shows the same type of introspection and emotion that Ocean showed off in “Pink Matter“. Something about this song is sad yet exciting, much like the beginning of the school year.
