About Thinkin Bout You

"Thinkin Bout You" is a song by American singer Frank Ocean, released as the lead single from his debut studio album Channel Orange (2012). The song was written by Ocean and produced by Shea Taylor. Originally to be featured on Bridget Kelly's debut album, Ocean released his original version of the track for free on his Tumblr account in 2011. In May 2012, the song was officially sent to radio and released on iTunes as a single by Ocean. Kelly would later release her own version of the track entitled "Thinking Bout Forever". Lyrically, the track is about a relationship just out of his reach and the turmoil that ensues. The track also explores feelings of regret and heartbreak. The song received highly positive reviews from music critics, who praised the atmospheric production, Ocean's falsetto and writing ability. Some critics noted the possible bisexual undertones featured on the track. In September 2012, the song peaked at position 32 on the Billboard Hot 100, 94 on the UK Singles Chart, and 13 on the Heatseekers Songs chart. In 2011, the song received a music video directed by visual art group High5Collective released on September 15. Ocean appears in the violent clip revolving around an inter-dimensional love story and zombies. Ocean performed the track during his seven-show tour through North America and Europe in November 2011, at the April 2012 Coachella Musical Festival, and his supporting tour for Channel Orange. "Thinkin Bout You" has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and has sold more than one million units in the United States. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2013 for Record of the Year.

A tornado flew around my room before you came
Excuse the mess it made, it usually doesn't rain in
Southern California, much like Arizona
My eyes don't shed tears, but, boy, they bawl

When I'm thinkin' 'bout you (ooh, no, no, no)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you (you know, know, know)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you
Do you think about me still? Do ya, do ya?

Or do you not think so far ahead? (ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (ooh, ooh)

Or do you not think so far ahead? (ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (ooh, ooh)

No, I don't like you, I just thought you were cool enough to kick it
Got a beach house I could sell you in Idaho
Since you think I don't love you, I just thought you were cute
That's why I kiss you
Got a fighter jet, I don't get fly it, though

I'm lyin' down thinkin' 'bout you (ooh, no, no, no)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you (you know, know, know)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you
Do you think about me still?
Do ya, do ya?

Or do you not think so far ahead? (ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (ooh, ooh)

Or do you not think so far ahead? (ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (ooh, ooh)

Yes, of course
I remember, how could I forget?
How you feel?
And though you were my first time
A new feel
It won't ever get old, not in my soul
Not in my spirit, keep it alive
We'll go down this road
'Til it turns from color to black and white

Or do you not think so far ahead? (ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (ooh, ooh)

Or do you not think so far ahead? (ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (ooh, ooh)
