Stream 'Scared of Beautiful', a sublime new Brandy song written by Frank Ocean

Brandy’s new album Two Eleven is out this week. 

A highlight comes in the form of  ’Scared of Beautiful’, a song penned by r’n'b star of the moment Frank Ocean. Ocean, of course, was a songwriter before he was a pop star, and Brandy has described ‘Scared’ as “speak[ing] to the fear of being the best version of you, the best part of yourself.” The production by Warryn Campbell is sublime, the moment when the guitar comes in over those filtered 808s sending particular shivers down FACT’s collective spine right now.

You can hear Ocean’s demo version below Brandy’s.
