Frank Ocean Honors Aaliyah’s Birthday, Covers “At Your Best (You Are Love)”


Today, a commemorative Frank Ocean-Aaliyah cover surfaced; in honor of what would be her 36th birthday, the Neo-soul singer released his soft and minimal take of the late R&B songstress’ 1994 hit, “At Your Best (You Are Love)”–her custom version of the Isley Brothers’ 1976 classic.

The Tumblr-uploaded track–which Ocean also coins as “You Are Luhh”–is beautifully bare, with nothing other than a drowned-out piano and goosebump-y vocals–a showcase of the Channel Orange artist’s notably high register and sweet falsetto.
