Frank Ocean has an estimated net worth of $10 million.
Born in New Orleans, Frank Ocean left his hometown for Los Angeles just after Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. There, he tries to develop his musical career. At the end of 2009, he joined the OFWGKTA group (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) with Hodgy Beats and Tyler, The Creator. He then meets producer Christopher “Tricky” Stewart who allows him to sign with the prestigious Def Jam label.
In 2010, he officially took the stagename of Christopher Francis Ocean and then wrote titles for John Legend, Brandy and Beyoncé Knowles.
In February 2011, he released the mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra which is very well received by fans and critics. Def Jam then marketed the mixtape as an EP in July 2011.
He then collaborated with Jay-Z and Kanye West on 2 tracks from their joint album Watch the Throne. He then participated in the writing of lyrics for Beyoncé Knowles’ album 4.
in 2012, Ocean releases his debut album Channel Orange which peaked at #2 on The Billboard 200. The album was later certified gold by the RIAA selling over 621,000 copies.
In 2016, Frank decided he wants to go independent and started his own label and put out his own music with any help from the major labels. But he was still contractually obligated to release an album under Def Jam. On August 18, 2016, he dropped a visual album called Endless exclusively on Apple Music under Def Jam.
Two days later, Frank releases his official 17 track follow up album Blonde under his own independent label Boys Don’t Cry. The album is another Apple Music exclusive and does very well earning him his first #1 album on the Billboard 200.
Since then, he’s said to be making a much bigger paycheck independently than he ever would have made with a label. He also has his own radio show now on Beats 1 radio on Apple Music.
