If you didn’t get your hands on a copy of Frank Ocean’s Boys Don’t Cry magazine and don’t feel like shelling out anywhere from $300 to $20,000 to get one off eBay, just continue to be patient. One, because his mama told us to. And two, because bits of the publication are making their way to the internet anyway. Like these poems penned by Kanye West and Tyler, the Creator. Or this list of Frank Ocean’s favorite songs.

Unsurprisingly eclectic (this is Frank we’re talking about!), his picks feature the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Frank Sinatra, Donna Summer, James Blake, D’Angelo, Nina Simone, Roberta Flack, D.R.A.M., GoldLink, Al Green, Chaka Khan, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, OutKast, Ray J and Daft Punk. It appropriately closes out with The Cure’s track “Boys Don’t Cry.”

And we’ve put them all into playlist for you so you can be as musically multi-faceted as Frank himself.

So, how does this compare to the POTUS’ playlists?
