In his fourth installment of his Beats 1 radio show blonded RADIO, Frank Ocean released two cuts of his new song “Lens,” one featuring Travis Scott. The song moves from describing a date to exploring Ocean’s concerns about losing one’s identity in a relationship. The song drops references to Ocean’s grandfather Lionel, Aunt Janet, Ocean’s childhood friend Matthew, and Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s failed marriage.
Like every good Frank Ocean track, “Lens” slowly accumulates depth with new instrumental textures, as Ocean and then Travis Scott meditate on which camera lenses each feels exposed to. Scott, for his part, will be joining Kendrick Lamar on tour this summer. Listen to “Lens” below, hear the full radio show here and finally, listen to “Biking,” another new Frank Ocean song recently debuted on blonded Radio, right here.
