Frank Ocean Giveth Again
All theories on interwoven sexuality references aside, Frank Ocean surprised fans with the release of “Biking” exclusively on his Blonded Beats 1 radio show on Friday night (April 7). With 2016’s Blonde still fresh on everyone’s mind, the ever-busy artist enlisted the help of Jay Z and Odd Future buddy, Tyler, the Creator on the single, the second song to be debuted in 2017 after March’s “Chanel.”
Reminiscent of Lupe Fiasco’s “Kick Push,” Ocean and his collaborators reflect on the sensations and memories of riding a bicycle, but mainly the freedom. The slow, acoustic guitar helps to evoke that nostalgia, accompanied with lyrics like "I'm bikin' uphill and it's burning my quads / I'm bikin' downhill and it sounds like a fishing rod." Read into it however you please, but do listen to the predictably perfect track and check out the video below.
