RnB heartthrob Frank Ocean has shared a new single titled “Biking”, with cameos from both Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator. The track was debuted on the third episode of Ocean’s “blonded RADIO”, which he runs on Beats 1, and as with everything that he puts out, it hasn’t taken long to start drawing a fair amount of attention. Based around softly strummed acoustic guitar and Frank’s velvety vocals, the track waits until Tyler enters the fray late on before it really explodes, with an outro designed to leave you wanting to hear more collaborations from Frank and his Odd Future colleague.
Frank Ocean plays in the UK with shows at Parklife and Lovebox this summer, offering UK residents a very rare opportunity to see the American singer in the flesh. Kicking off on Saturday 10th June, Parklife at Manchester’s Heaton Park will also see huge names A Tribe Called Quest, Jess Glynne, The 1975 and hundreds more perform, with Frank playing on the main stage as the headline act on Sunday 11th June. Lovebox, held at Victoria Park in London, have invited him to play the headline slot on Friday 14th July, with Jamie xx, Solange and more in support.
