It’s been known for sometime now that Frank Ocean had written a song for Brandy’s new album. Now you can finally listen to “Scared of Beautiful” that’s set to appear on her album “Two Eleven” in stores on Tuesday.

Listening to the song it’s very easy to picture Frank Ocean signing this based on the songs style and flow. I’m sure we’d all be interested to hear Frank’s demo version that was recorded. Hopefully he finds an opportunity to perform this live like he has in the past for Beyonce’s “Miss You”.  Listen to Frank Ocean’s version of the song right here! 

If you’re interested, the full lyrics to the song can be read below.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Turn the lamp on, let me talk to yah
See the light bulb does something to yah
Makes it a little harder to tell a lie on it
Makes it a difficult to run and hide on it
Tell the truth to me, good truth to me
Come closer to me, that’s you
I wanna see the details inside those beautiful eyes

Myself ain’t never talked to me like that before, no
And I wonder, what on earth is he searching for?
No wonder why there’s no mirrors on these walls no more (no more)
You can’t tell me why you’re so terrified of beautiful

[Chorus]
Scared of good more then the evil
Scared of the light more then the dark
Scared of the truth so much more then a lie
I’m scared for me, I’m scared of me
Scared of beautiful

[Verse 2]
Turn the lamp down, dont talk to me
That lightbulb took something from me
Gave something to me, I can’t decide, I cant decide
Took freedom, gave purpose
Can’t blend in, too perfect
All this beauty ever gave me was a reason for some beautiful lies

Myself ain’t never talked to me like that before, no 
And I wonder, what on earth is he searching for? 
No wonder why there’s no mirrors on these walls no more (no more) 
You can’t tell me why you’re so terrified of beautifull

[Chorus] 
Scared of good more then the evil 
Scared of the light more then the dark 
Scared of the truth so much more then a lie 
I’m scared for me, I’m scared of me 
Scared of beautiful

[Verse 3]
Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Who’s the fairest of them all?
Mirror, mirror, ______
Compared to all the beautiful ones
No wonder why theres no mirrors on these walls no more
You cant tell me why you’re so terrified of beautiful

[Chorus] 
Scared of good more then the evil 
Scared of the light more then the dark 
Scared of the truth so much more then a lie 
I’m scared for me, I’m scared of me 

[Outro]
I’m scared of me, I’m scared for me, I’m scared for me
I’m scared to be, beautiful
Beautiful,
Beautiful,
Beautiful.

    I expected a lot more out of the collaboration but it was o.k. in my opinion frank oceans version is better.

  • Ashonya

    To be honest, I loved Frank’s original version better. I’m upset that Frank might not get his credit for this song. Like, people might just recognize it as Brandy’s lyrics. But I’m happy for Brandy’s album, I hope it’s successful.
