Frank Ocean legally changes his name

Oh Frank Ocean, you’re such a tease. First you post one beautiful new song onto your Tumblr, with some unrelated lyrics. Then you release the most emotional Aaliyah cover ever. Then you post a photo of your new album cover and the vague news that it’ll be out in July.

Once again bringing himself into our news cycle in a most mysterious way, we found out today that he’s changed his name legally – to, you guessed it, FRANK OCEAN.

Letting go of his birth name, Christopher Edwin Breaux, a Los Angeles judge has now officially signed off on Ocean no longer being a mere moniker, but a true identity.

TMZ reported this time last year that Ocean had filed papers for the name change, but they were put on hold for a while following issues related to his drivers license.

Talk about dedication to your music, right?!
