Sweet baby Jesus, was it only one year ago that we were all introduced to the soulful sounds of Frank Ocean courtesy of his critically acclaimed effort, Nostalgia: ULTRA? It seems that the New Orleans' born singer/songwriter has come a long way since paying homage to Coldplay on "Strawberry Swing," as he joins RocNation songbird Rita Ora to open up for the multi-platinum band this summer.

Frank Ocean performed in a handful of limited engagement shows this past winter and doesn't have much experience performing solo, however he'll get a crash course this summer when he gets the chance to take on Coldplay's massive European crowds. As for Jay-Z's latest product, Rita Ora, she will be splitting dates for the first half of the tour.
