While the release of Frank Ocean's Blonde has answered a lot of pertinent questions, like for instance, "where the hell has Frank Ocean been?", it has also opened up the door for a whole new slew of questions to arise. First, there's the whole figuring out who each song is about and which tracks directly pertains to Ocean's life. But there's also the question of getting to know each person who is featured on the album. For instance, who is Sebastian of "Facebook Story", the man who tells the story of the song's title? Come on, I know you've been wondering, too.
Well, first, let me refresh your memory (though considering that the album just debuted, it shouldn't be too rusty, but it's a lot to take in at once, so you might need the aid). "Facebook Story" starts with a man with a French accent, who Genius has identified as "Sebastian," telling a tale about why a past relationship had gone awry.
I was just telling that I got this girl before. And I was together since 3 years. And em, I was not even cheating on her or what. And Facebook arrived and she wanted me to accept her on Facebook. And I don't want it because I was like in front of her. And she told me like 'Accept me on Facebook.' It was virtual, made no sense. So I say, 'I'm in front of you, I don't need to accept you on Facebook.' She started to be crazy. She thought that because I didn't accept her. She thought I was cheating. She told me like, uh, it's over and I can't believe it. It is crazy because I like her. I'm in front of you, I'm every day here in your house. That's like jealousy. Pure jealousy for nothing. You know, virtual thing.
SebastiAn hasn’t released any original material since his own debut album, Total, which was released back 2011, and since then has been producing a variety of different acts including Fall Out Boy, Katerine and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
And, on Friday, he even changed his profile picture to a joint photo with Ocean. It's in a black and white filter, you know, for effect. Being on "Facebook Story" is a pretty big deal, and fans will now get to know SebastiAn and all his musical contributions.
