LISTEN: Frank Ocean Surprises Fans With New Song ‘Chanel’
Last night (Mar. 10) at the end of the second episode of his Beats 1 Radio show “Blonded”, R&B singer Frank Ocean dropped a new song titled “Chanel”. It sent fans into a meltdown, and Ocean rapidly began trending on Twitter.
He followed up the surprise release with a remix of that very same track featuring rapper ASAP Rocky. “Chanel” marks the first release by Ocean since his critically-acclaimed projects Blonde and Endless in August 2016.
It didn’t take long for the lyrics to be published online for “Chanel”, where Ocean sings, “My guy pretty like a girl/ And he got fight stories to tell/ I see both sides like Chanel/ See on both sides like Chanel.”
What’s made clear is that he’s talking about a relationship with a man, something he’s been open about before. With this latest release, however, rumours have begun to swirl surrounding whether or not this song is about his bisexuality, as he “sees both sides”.
While it remains doubtful Ocean will explain the lyrics, the song is extremely catchy. Take a listen to “Chanel” below:
