After previewing it on his ‘blonded’ Beats1 radio show, Frank Ocean released new track ‘Chanel’ this week. Frank seems to be on a release wave at the moment, as we got the dancy ‘Slide‘ a few weeks back, featuring Calvin Harris and Migos.
Featuring haunting piano, and sporadic Ocean raps and melodies, Chanel seems to channel a similar energy to recent visual album Endless. It is his first solo release since he dropped both Endless and Blonde midway through last year. You can hear the original version of Chanel on Apple Music here.
These releases don’t be appeared to be connected to any specific release, and are very different from one another.
