Frank Ocean is on the cover of Fader Magazine’s Fall Fashion Issue. Frank is a member of Odd Future and has a few joints on the new Kanye/Jay-Z album “Watch The Throne”. We’re so happy for Frank (formerly “Lonny Breaux”)! His talent is undeniable.
Some Frank/Dapo songs include “Bigger” (Justin Bieber’s MY WORLD), “Quickly” (John Legend’s EVOLVER featuring Brandy). and a handful of songs on Frank’s mixed tape, The Lonny Breaux Collection.

JUSTIN BIEBER NEVER SAY NEVER in theaters on FRIDAY!!! Bring 5 friends! This is an incredible film and we are honored to be a part of Justin’s incredible story!! Jon Chu did an amazing job mixing Justin Bieber’s 3D concert footage with backstage, family & fan footage!
Dapo took a break from the studio this afternoon to attend the “2010 Teen Choice Awards Talent Swag Social” at the London West Hollywood (Hosted by California Queen and benefiting the “Children of the Night” charity)
Jennifer Tapiero (StarCam Host) chatted with Dapo about what it’s like working with Demi Lovato (and about Demi’s “new sound”), his song with Matthew “Mdot” Finley “Fire” in Camp Rock 2, what it’s like working with the hottest pop star in the world, Justin Bieber (“Bigger” & “Overboard”), how cool is Jesse McCartney and his new hot dance song, “Up”, on the Step Up 3D soundtrack & in the movie (Step Up 3D hits theaters today!), and what it’s like to write with American Idol sweetheart, David Archuleta. We’ll post the interview as soon as it becomes available!
Miss California Teen USA (Emma Baker) tried out her interview chops with Dapo and they realized they have “Nigeria” in common when she heard he was from Nigeria, she revealed that her father is from Nigeria! It’s an interesting story and you’ll have to wait until the interview is released! (We’ll post a link!) Oh, and this interview was shot in 3D!! Perfect timing since today Step Up 3D hits theaters nation-wide!!
