* 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," 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.

* DownerEnding: "Swim Good" and "Super Rich Kids". Played with in "Strawberry Swing", but hey, at least [[{{Superman}} whoever was in that spaceship got off the planet...]]

* DiegeticSwitch: "Golden Girl" does this, starting by playing the song on a radio before transitioning into the studio version.

Earl announced his ''Doris'' album in late 2012 before dropping the video for the "Chum" single. Another single, "Whoa" (with Tyler on the hook) followed in March of 2013. After much waiting, anticipation, and plenty of delays, his studio debut album ''Doris'' was released in August 2013 to critical acclaim; Earl has already confirmed the name of the next album to be ''Gnossos,'' but nothing else is known about it.

* MinimalistCoverArt: ''channel ORANGE'' bears the name in two distinct white fonts on an orange background.
* OneOfUs: ''nostalgia, ULTRA.'''s interludes are named after ''Franchise/StreetFighter'', ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'', ''[[VideoGame/GoldenEye1997 GoldenEye]]'' and ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur''.
** ''channel ORANGE'' starts with the UsefulNotes/PlayStation 1 starting up and Frank playing Street Fighter II. There are also references to [[Manga/DragonBall Majin Buu]] in "Pink Matter".
** From Odd Future's song "Oldie": "Yeah, get me a Persian rug where the centre looks like ''Galaga''..."
** During promotion for channel ORANGE, his appearance on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' featured a performance set covered in active video games. During the closing guitar solo of "Pyramids", he left to play one.
* TrueCompanions: Ocean has no plans on distancing himself from Odd Future. His tumblr account header, to date, still reads "FRANK OCEAN � OFWG � KTA".
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: ''nostaglia, ULTRA.'' was supposed to get [[UpdatedRerelease re-released]] as ''nostalgia, LITE.'', with several of the sampled songs (notably the {{Eagles}}' "Hotel California") removed.
** "Thinkin Bout You" was originally ghostwritten for Bridget Kelly, a.k.a. that girl Music/JayZ brings out for "Empire State of Mind" when he can't find Music/AliciaKeys. The version that helped Frank blow up was a rough cut he recorded for Kelly to sing over in the studio; it was never supposed to see the light of day.
