A day after Missy Elliott delivered an electrifying performance, Frank Ocean wowed audiences with a sublime performance of his beloved songs and he brought out a very special guest.
According to Esquire, Ocean serenaded Brad Pitt (via a video screen) with his rendition of The Carpenters’ song "Close to You" and Stevie Wonder's "Never Can Say Goodbye." It was a tender moment that mesmerized both the sold-out crowd in attendance as well as folks on social media.
In a recent interview with GQ Style, Pitt revealed that he's an admirer of Ocean and listens to his music constantly. “I've been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean,” he said. “I find this young man so special. Talk about getting to the raw truth. He's painfully honest. He's very, very special. I can't find a bad one.”
Viewers on Twitter spotted director Spike Jonze on stage directing the whole spectacle leading to speculation that there's some kind of video in the works As of right right now that's pure speculation.
Outside of the Brad Pitt cameo, Ocean delivered an amazing set as he performed many of his hits including "Thinking Bout You" and "Biking."
We must also note that this is also Ocean's first concert performance in the U.S. in over three years.
