Watch Frank Ocean's First TV Performance

Monday night delivered another big moment for hip hop: Frank Ocean, just one week after coming out about his sexuality, performed on TV for the first time on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to support his new album, Channel Orange. Fallon was stoked

Ocean's performance of "Bad Religion" was a killer: Backed by Fallon's house band the Roots and a string section, Ocean soared onstage, singing about unrequited love and deep secrets: "I can't tell you the truth about my disguise. I can't trust no one... I can never make him love me..."

Ocean also announced that his album would drop that night, a week before its scheduled release. Stream Channel Orange over at Frank's Tumblr.
