Watch Frank Ocean’s Coming-Out TV Performance of ‘Bad Religion’ (Video)

Days after coming out, Ocean makes TV debut with song about unrequited love

Frank Ocean gave his first TV performance Monday, singing the unrequited love song "Bad Religion" on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."

The Fallon performance came just days after the hip-hop and R&B artist came out in a long online post describing his unreturned love for another man. "Bad Religion" chronicled a similar situation.

"I could never make him love me, no," sang Ocean, backed by a string section and Fallon's house band, The Roots.

Ocean also surprised fans by releasing his debut album, "Channel Orange," on iTunes a week ahead of schedule. It was the No. 1 album Tuesday.
