Ocean began his musical career as a ghostwriter, prior to joining hip hop collective Odd Future in 2010. His contributions to the group have been critically lauded, and allowed Ocean to release his debut mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra a year later. 

Ocean released his debut studio album, Channel Orange, in July 2012, which debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and was soon certified platinum. The album was also a resounding critical success, and won Ocean his first Grammy Award, for Best Urban Contemporary Album. The album also contained the singles "Thinkin Bout You", "Pyramids", and "Sweet Life", with the former also gaining him a nomination for Record of the Year at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.

His second album, Blonde, was released in 2016, and was subject to controversy after Ocean endured protracted contract disputes with Def Jam, which led to the album suffering repeated pushbacks and delays. Upon release, Blonde debuted at number one in several countries, and was also highly acclaimed by critics. The album was soon certified platinum, and contained the single "Nikes."

Ocean's idiosyncratic musical style and contributions to the medium have credited him with revitalizing R&B to encourage innovation. Ocean has also gained critical acclaim for his introspective and elliptical songwriting, unconventional production techniques, and vocal range. His distinctive sound and style has influenced numerous artists of various music genres, and he is considered one of the most acclaimed artists of the 21st century.
