Sometimes a song comes along and after a few seconds of listening, you just know you want to listen to what else is in store for the next three minutes or so.

Frank Ocean : You Are Luhh

Who’s ever heard a song from an album and thought…“Ummm WOW! This is awesome. Why is this not a single yet?”  When we first heard Maroon 5‘s latest album V , we had the same exact thought about Sugar.
