Frank Ocean once again was trending on Twitter in the early hours of the morning (April 8, 2017) thanks to the surprise arrival of episode 3 of “blonded,” his ongoing music program with Apple’s Beats One Radio.
The unannounced episode was foreshadowed on a blonded.co, a dedicated site for the program, which uploaded a visual prior to the show featuring a snippet from a new singled titled “Biking.” The single features contributions from Jay Z and Ocean’s old friend Tyler the Creator. In his second episode of “blonded,” Ocean released the single, “Chanel.”
The episode 3 playlist was eclectic (we expect no less from Ocean), and included 29 singles by The Doobie Brothers, Patti LaBelle, Ray J, Rihanna, Kehlani, Drake ft. Kanye West and many more. (Visit Fader for the complete list of 29 songs.) The show closed out with the debut of “Biking,” a single featuring Jay-Z and Ocean’s old friend Tyler the Creator. The episode is now available to stream on all formats.
Check out the video and playlist below, along with a flier for the FYE Fest, which Ocean will be headlining.
