Frank Ocean is an R&B pioneer who bares his goddamn soul on the track, but he’s also very good at staying out of the spotlight. That’s why it’s such a surprise the Grammy Award-winner has set his Instagram account public, granting fans a peek into the life of the secretive songwriter.

Ocean flipped the switch this morning with a post literally welcoming new @blonded followers with open arms.

A deeper look into the account reveals the fella’s very on-brand lifestyle. Luxurious shots document his hangs with Odd Future co-conspirator Tyler, The Creator, his sartorial expertise, and of course, his deep and enduring love for the BMW M3. 

Some of the shots have also appeared on his public and publicly-known Tumblr, but there are still stacks of unseen goodies.

Fans had long suspected @blonded belonged to Ocean, considering the similarity of its name to the album Blonde, and the fact his ma was one of its select few followers for ages. 

There’s not much more to it – just another account with a flawless aesthetic, curated by one of the defining voices of a generation.
