Frank Ocean is probably spending his 30th birthday (Oct. 28) in secrecy, since we haven't heard from him in awhile. Nevertheless, the talented piano man is, arguably, one of this generation's greatest singers.

Ocean is undeniably a great vocalist who wrings humanity out of his voice and tenderness out of his falsetto. His songwriting glues together his sonic ambitions and adds that relatable feeling through his mystique. Examples of his skills are found all throughout his discography, from Nostalgia, Ultra to channel ORANGE.

In 2012, channel ORANGE became something of a cultural moment partly because of an agreed-upon fact: It's arguably the best R&B album to come out this decade. However, it's notable for being an album from an openly bisexual man -- a first for a release of this magnitude.

Fast forward to 2016. Ocean released Blonde, his most critically acclaimed album to date. Songs like "Nikes" and "Godspeed" are fan-favorites from the LP.

This past summer, Ocean came out of hiding and went on a brief tour -- his first since 2014. The Grammy-winning singer also dropped new singles "Provider" and "Slide on Me" featuring Young Thug. All exemplifying his songwriting brilliance.

Speaking of songwriting, next month, Ocean is set to present music legend Rick Rubin with the Legendary Genius Award at Spotify's inaugural Secret Genius Awards. The event, which honors songwriters, will happen on Nov. 1 in Los Angeles.

Happy Birthday, Frank Ocean!
