  • This modern day ballad was penned by Frank Ocean, but much to Conor's disappointment, he never got to meet the American R&B singer-songwriter. "It was one of those sessions where a song is put out there, where someone writes it, and someone else hears it and I end up with a song on my album," he explained to MTV News. "For me, it's kind of annoying I never got to meet him, but at the same time it's an incredible song."
