Women lie, men lie, numbers don’t…and neither do pictures.

Just in case you thought the so called rumors were false, it’s official—Frank Ocean and Jay-Z have indeed united as one in the studio. After the success of his own mixtape turned EP project, ‘Nostalgia, Ultra’ and writing talents behind Beyonce’s song “I Miss You” from her ‘4’ album ,it has been confirmed that one half of the Odd Future duo has been tapped by the Jigga Man himself to work on his forthcoming solo LP.

Franks manager, Kelly Clancy recently released a photo via twitter and OddFuturetalk.com which ultimately seemed to portray how focused both parties were while working on new music together. In earlier years, this probably would have been Jay-Z’s other right hand man turned foe, Beanie Sigel, but so much for all of that now. Anyway,  if you look closely at the photo, the two even almost seem to have the same exact facial expression as they appear to be buried in their work, yet still on one accord.  In other news, Frank O. will also be featured on the highly-anticipated ‘Watch The Throne,’ collaborative album by Jay-Z and Kanye West. So big congrats to the man of the summer, Mr. Frank Ocean!

Do you think that the two are a great pair musically? While you take time to think about it, check out Frank Ocean’s video for his hot song ‘Novacane’ here.
