*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.

Quickly rising into a superstar status, Ocean's got a very warm and soulful, light baritone, which he is able to stretch up there quite well too. There's a lot of lower singing and smooth falsetto to be found on his songs, especially in the background vocals.

wait... I'm confused as to the definition of modal-non modal (I'm a newbie) I know his g5 was in falsetto but what about that f5 and that e5 in Sweet Life and Bad Religion respectively? I know he belts high af in both of those songs, channeling an authentic tenor, so I don't see why they'd be in question

I'll listen to them now (I probably should have listened to them first lol) but are you referring to his belting there or his falsetto?
