Ocean has also written songs for Beyonce, Justin Bieber, John Legend and Brandy. He appeared on two songs from Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaborative album, "Watch the Throne."

The singer is also a member of the alternative hip-hop group Odd Future. His band mate, Tyler, the Creator, is known for using homophobic words in songs, but he also has showed support for Ocean.

Outside of the celebrity world, some fans have praised Ocean. Others, though, weren't as supportive, with some saying they could no longer listen to Ocean's music because he was romantically linked to a man.

Ocean will launch his U.S. tour next week.
