Day 139 Frank Ocean – You Are Luhh (Aaliyah Cover)

Frank Ocean - You Are LuhhIf Sia is my idea of the ultimate female vocalist, Frank Ocean easily stands out as a worthy male equivalent. Just moments after unveiling a brand new solo track yesterday, Ocean dropped this heartbreaking cover of the late Aaliyah’s At Your Best (You Are Love), itself a cover of The Isley Brothers original radio hit from way back in 1976. Released on what would have been Aaliyah’s 36th birthday, You Are Luhh is an emotional homage to the musician and boy is it beautiful. Showing-off all the gorgeous layers to his voice, Ocean reaches sumptuous highs and smooth, soulful lows in this exquisite and personally touching reinterpretation of The Isley Brothers / Aaliyah’s classic. Check out You Are Luhh below or via Frank Ocean’s tumblr blog here.
