Frank Ocean is being considered as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live when NBC's venerable sketch comedy series returns September 15, according to reports.

Since coming out last month, the 24-year-old hip-hop musician has seen his career skyrocket. His album Channel Orange was met with both widespread critical acclaim and impressive sales. In addition, Ocean has also made numerous high-profile appearances, including Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and on September 6 he's scheduled to perform on the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, where his "Swim Good" video is nominated in three categories.
