As 2012 draws to a close, it’s clear that many people have Frank Ocean on their minds as one of the year’s standout artists — ourselves included: his debut Channel Orange ranked rather high on our Best Albums Of 2012 list! Another artist who is all about Ocean is up-and-coming “Ready Or Not” singer/recent X Factor performer Bridgit Mendler.
“I know it’s a super popular song, but I can’t help it — it’s so good,” Mendler told us about Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” when she sat down to discuss the music that moved her in 2012. And what exactly is it about this “dude” and his hit single that Brigit loves so much? Watch above to find out, then let us know what your own favorite song of the year was.
