>3 THINGS I’M LOVING NOW!
1 FRANK OCEAN’S VIVID DEBUT
Channel Orange, his instant neo-soul classic, continues to reveal new shades to me. “Bad Religion,” starting with that churchy organ, breaks my heart every time I hear it.
2 GREEN DAY’S NEW DAWN
Previewing their upcoming album trilogy with “Oh Love”—a punk-pop blast that has already hit No. 1 on Billboard’s rock chart—the trio have helped save a slow summer for the genre.
3 JESSIE J AT THE OLYMPICS
The Brit was the big winner at the closing ceremony, singing her hit “Price Tag,” the Bee Gees’ “You Should Be Dancing” with Taio Cruz and Tinie Tempah, and even “We Will Rock You” with Queen.
