* CoverVersion: Technically, although it's really more like extended {{sampling}}. About half of the songs on ''nostalgia. ULTRA.'' transpose the beats from other artists' tracks[[note]] Music/{{Coldplay}} for "Strawberry Swing," one-time Music/KanyeWest protege Mr. Hudson for "There Will Be Tears," Music/TheEagles' "Hotel California" for "American Wedding," and Music/{{MGMT}}'s "Electric Feel" for "Nature Feels"[[/note]]; Frank tends to match the melodies but creates his own lyrics and harmonies.

Added DiffLines:

* ExactWords: When his 30th birthday began nearing, fans pointed back to an old tweet of his that said "5 albums before 30", noting that he had 4 under his belt (''Nostalgia, Ultra'', ''Channel Orange'', ''Endless'', ''Blonde'') and had 1 more to go. When he turned 30, nothing happened. Then he took to his Tumblr to state that [[http://frankocean.tumblr.com/post/167963583301/well-i-made-the-album-before-30-i-just-aint he did make the album before 30]]...[[HereWeGoAgain he just didn't put it out]].

Added DiffLines:

* MrFanservice: Let's just say [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Cqa0MQ_WIAA4q5g.jpg he's got quite the build]].
* NewSoundAlbum: ''Blonde'' was vastly more experimental than ''Channel Orange''.
* RecurringRiff: The Buddy Ross song "Runnin Around" is used multiple times throughout ''Blonde'' as background music for its spoken-word interludes.
* ShoutOut:
** "Seigfried" contains the line [[Music/ElliottSmith "This is not my life, it's just a fond farewell to a friend"]].
** "Provider" name-drops Creator/StanleyKubrick and Music/AphexTwin.

In 2015, a photo posted by Tyler to Twitter with the caption "Although it's no more, those 7 letters (OFWGKTA) will remain forever" led many to believe that the collective was splitting up. Tyler eventually chalked the reactions up to a misunderstanding, although they were heightened by further evidence of storms brewing amongst the group members. They ultimately confirmed in 2016 that they were still together.
