I tried to channel overwhelming emotions.

from Frank Ocean – Frank Ocean's Open Letter on Tumblr on Rap Genius

Meaning

Says Ocean

“My music definitely comes from a place of experience. Everything connects to a truth. Heartbreak, I imagine, has been the same emotion since the beginning of it all… Going through heartbreak was new for me. I wasn’t trying to make a record that people could relate to. I was just trying to make a record with the shit that I wanted to express. The shit that I wanted to get off my chest. Everybody has a unique experience, but it’s a feeling that’s so human that others can relate to it.”
