The latest installment follows just two days after the premiere of the fourth edition of Ocean's Apple Music show
The latest episode of Frank Ocean‘s ‘blonded RADIO’ is currently streaming online on Beats 1 – listen to the new show below.
The surprise airing of the fifth episode of Ocean’s Apple Music show has come just two days after its previous installment (April 22), which saw the artist premiere his latest stand-alone single ‘Lens’. The surprise track came in two versions, with one featuring a guest verse from Travis Scott.
‘Episode 005’ is currently streaming on Apple Music’s Beats 1 station, which is available to listen to now via iTunes here.
The surprise release of ‘Lens’ followed another unexpected single drop earlier this month. ‘Biking’, which featured Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator, also premiered on an episode of Ocean’s ‘blonded’ Apple Music show.
Since the long-awaited release of his second studio album ‘blonde’ last year, Ocean has also released the stand-alone single ‘Chanel’ – again, premiered through his ‘blonded’ radio show.
