The New Orleans, LA native gained notoriety after the release of his 2011 mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra. He quickly drew interest from such names as Kanye West, Beyonce Knowles, and Jay Z.

The songs on his long awaited debut album, Channel Orange (due July 17th) dealt with subjects ranging from interpersonal relationships, personal reflection and social commentaries. He had recently posted on his Tumblr blog about falling in love with a 19-year-old male in the summer of 2007 and thanking his for his influence on how it helped him become who he is today.
