Frank Ocean - Chanel
In the second episode of Frank Ocean’s Beats1 radio show blonded, Frank debuted a brand new song called ‘Chanel’. The track was played 18 times in the second half of the show, including a remixed version from A$AP Rocky.
The song is a step back from the melodic tones of the emotionally charged blond which the enigmatic artist released last year. Instead the artist returns to the tales of consumerist nature and excessive lifestyles that pervaded Channel orange, “My pockets snug, they can’t hold my cell phone, they bend my Visa, my Amex and Mastercard” the artist boasts. Frank is certainly riding a wave of success at the moment, and this song is only adding swell to that. Frank also released a hand crafted playlist, featuring songs from Young Fathers, Mary Lou Williams, and Alex G. You can see the entire tracklist via Fader.
The new song is available to stream on both Spotify and Apple Music. We’ve got it on repeat all day, so hopefully you enjoy it.
