Video: Frank Ocean Performs With John Mayer On Saturday Night Live Season Premiere

Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean continued his hot streak of amazing live television performances with two hot ones as musical guest on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live.

Ocean started off his appearance by performing his soulful ballad “Thinkin’ Bout You.” Perched on a stool in the middle of the stage, the singer delivered falsetto goodness on the track. He received a little help from singer/songwriter John Mayer who quietly strummed along on his guitar. Ocean and Mayer would return to the stage later for another SNL performance. This time, they’d perform the second half of the nearly 10-minute long single “Pyramids.”

Both “Thinkin Bout You” and “Pyramids” can be found on Frank Ocean’s critically-acclaimed latest album “channel Orange.” The set rocketed to No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart when it was released earlier this year, a feat he achieved with mostly digital downloads as the album was released one week early due to popular demand. Watch Frank Ocean make his Saturday Night Live debut in the performance videos below.

  1. I loved seeing Frank Ocean perform on SNL on Saturday. I love his voice and I think he does exceptionally well live, contrary to many artists. I liked that he had John Mayer play guitar during this set, I thought that was a nice touch. It was great discussing this performance with my Dish coworkers. Luckily I recorded it on my Hopper because when I played back the recording I was able to start watching on my living room TV and then continue watching where I left off on any TV in my house.
