In My Room

Album: Yet to be titled (2019)
Charted: 72 85

Songfacts®:

  • This 2-minute rapped freestyle features plenty of wordplay from Frank Ocean. The braggadocios verse contains familiar rap themes of sex, drugs and bling. However, by the end of the track, Ocean has become more vulnerable as he describes a series of intimate encounters with a lover.

    Every night you were in my room
    My room, my room with me
    I guess I can't state my feelings too soon
    I don't know you


    Ocean's dissatisfaction with the relationship seems to be linked to his hatred of people invading his privacy.
  • Ocean co-wrote and co-produced the track alongside Michael Uzowuru. A longtime collaborator of the rapper/singer, Uzowuru has previously worked on such songs as "Nights" and "Chanel."
