It looks like the wait for new Frank Ocean music wasn’t nearly as long as the gap between 2012’s “Channel Orange” and 2016’s “Blonde ” and “Endless.”
The singer sent fans into the weekend with a smooth new track, “Chanel,” which he debuted Friday night on his Beats 1 show, “blonded RADIO.”
“My guy pretty like a girl / And he got fight stories to tell / I see on both sides like Chanel / See on both sides like Chanel,” he sings at the top of the track. The lyrics tackle intimacy with a lover, sexuality, fame and success.
According to Rolling Stone , the song played 18 times during the two-hour radio show — including a remixed version featuring A$AP Rocky.
The artist was also recently featured on Calvin Harris’ new song, “Slide,” alongside Migos.
Ocean shared two images on his Tumblr after the release.
Ocean fans were, naturally, unprepared for a new song so soon after “Blonde” and “Endless.”
Us: “Frank Ocean is going to go back into hiding after he releases his new album.”
