Frank Ocean’s decision to pull a fast one on Def Jam and Universal Music Group is working out nicely, if you care about trivial things like artistic freedom and fat bank accounts.

Frank released a 45-minute visual album titled Endless earlier this month, freeing him from his contractual obligations with the record companies. Then, just days later, released Blonde on his own independent label, Boys Don’t Cry.

That album has sold 276,000 units since its release last Saturday. According to Forbes, artists on a major record label typically make anywhere from $1.50 to $2.00 per album. But since Ocean released his project on his own label, he’s seeing anywhere from $5 to $7.50 per album sold. That means after the expenses that went into producing the album, Ocean has already pocketed $1 million in profit in just one week.

Jill Scott’s Drunken Disaster NOT The Result Of Divorce Drama … So She Says.

Jill Scott is blaming it on the alcohol … not her divorce.

Jilly from Philly had one drink (or several) too many and decided to document her mood for all to see on social media. By the looks of it, she instantly regretted it.

Scott snatched the video down within hours of posting it, but that was still long enough for fans to reach out to the songstress with cries of concern in her comment section. Jill, who recently filed for divorce from her second husband, Mike Dobson, seemed to be crying in the beginning of the video … then laughing hysterically by the end. And, of course, her tribe of supporters took notice.

Unfortunately, Scott wasn’t here for the sympathy. Instead she clapped back at those insinuating she was drowning her divorce tears in a bottle of Henny. In an IG post captioned, “Real Talk. Good Night,” Jill explained that all y’all need to chill and not everything is about her ex.

So, do you believe her? Jill and Mike were married just 15 months before Scott filed for divorce citing “inappropriate marital conduct.” Dobson then went on a media tour shading the Neo-soul singer calling her controlling and evil.

Look, Jill, if you are hitting the bottle to hide your pain we won’t blame you. Even if it is “out of your mind” we’re sure it’s still stressful and that’s ok. On the other hand, if you were justing getting super lit on a Saturday, then more power to you!
