If you weren't tuned in to Frank Ocean's third blonded RADIO Beats 1 show on Saturday (April 8), the enigmatic artist premiered his "Biking" collaboration with Jay Z and longtime friend Tyler, the Creator. Get to streaming above.
The mellow track opens up with Jigga's signature adlib-filled flow, spitting "Life goes in cycles / What comes around goes around / So before it goes down / Get you some icicles." Ocean then rushes in as he croons, "When's the last time I asked for some help?" on the sunlit production. The middle of the track takes a dark turn when Tyler, the creator comes in with a memorable verse. "My accolades hang from my neck / Pedal, I drown in the heat / My sapphires drown in my sweat," he raps.
"Biking" marks the fourth collaboration between Ocean and Hov, following “No Church in the Wild" and “Made in America" from 2011's Watch the Throne, and “Oceans" off 2013's Magna Carta Holy Grail. The Odd Future members have previously worked together on tracks like “She,” “Window,” “Analog 2,” "Golden Girl" and “Slater.”
Ocean previously shared his "Chanel" tune and its remix featuring A$AP Rocky on the second episode of blonded RADIO. He also appears on Calvin Harris' summertime anthem "Slide" with Migos. Next up, watch an interview with Frank Ocean backstage at the 2013 BRITs:
