Frank Ocean releases "Chanel"

13 March 10:34

Frank Ocean's latest release, Chanel, debuted on his Beats 1 Radio Show. The song follows the same recognisable formula that has catapulted him to success with ethereal pad sounds, mellow paino chord progrssion and layered vocals. The song has many similarities to Nike from his Blonde album which, draws on an extended comparative metaphor between his lived experiences and a prominent designer brand. 


In true Frank Ocean fashion, the release was unexpected. This marks his first release since his 2016 albums Blonde and Endless. Not long after dropping the song, Ocean uploaded two pictures to his Tumblr, of which one featured lyrics to Chanel in an abstract layout. Two versions of the single are making its circulations, of which A$AP Rocky features on. During his hour long premiere of the single, Ocean played alternate versions of his pulsing jam Chanel. The song speaks to intimacy, sexuality and wealth. Listen to Chanel on iTunes or Tidal.


Below is a snippet of the Tumblr post for the song:
