Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny have not ben hiding their romance as of late. Most recently, the duo were spotted enjoying each other’s company at the first weekend of Coachella. Living a fantasy so many of us have; Jenner and Bunny swayed, with arms wrapped around, to a live performance of Frank Ocean’s “Pink + White”.
Frank Ocean headlined the festival Sunday night (April 16th). Ocean himself prefers to stay in obscurity, rarely releasing lengthy projects, and not often preforming live. His being in public is news worthy, let alone holding the stage of one of the most revered music celebrations.
Unlike most, if not all, other performer’s sets, Ocean’s set was not officially recorded by the venue. The only way to get glimpses is through live streams or short clips released by fans in attendance. During his set, Frank gave a heart felt speech acknowledging the love he holds for his late brother. Later going on to end the night leaving his fans wanting more. Frank Ocean fans are some of the most die hard, and are seemingly never pleased due to the constant craving of more from Frank. During his speech though, he hinted at an album, though in the same breath said it wouldn’t be too soon. I guess we’ll just have to continue waiting.
The second weekend of the Coachella Valley Arts And Music Festival ensues Friday April 21st, through the 23rd.
