They are like the championship, after all...
Frank Ocean recently spoke with the Guardian (via Billboard) about his Grammy nominations, a possible temporary break from music and more. Check out the highlights:
Joking that he could retire after the success of his first album: "It could be [the last album]. I don't ever want to be caught up in a system of thinking I can do one thing cos that's just … that's just telling yourself a lie...I don't intend to stop making music. This isn't a faux retirement… I was just making music yesterday."
On his Grammy Award nominations: "Of course awards matter. It's like a player in any ball league… the Grammys are like the championship, and that's cool. It's cool to be recognized by your peers."
On what albums he enjoyed in 2012: "I thought Norah Jones made a really good record."
On who he wants to make new music: "I think Fleetwood Mac needs to make a new album. I think so."
