Frank Ocean & Young Thug Share New Collaboration “Slide On Me”

Frank Ocean just surprised us all with another episode of his blonde RADIO beats 1 show bringing every more new music. Episode 005 came just a day after episode 004 and premiered a new version of Frank’s “Slide On Me” featuring Young Thug

The original version of “Slide On Me” appeared on Frank’s visual album Endless that was released right before his Blonde album this past fall. Frank has been on fire lately pumping out a ton of new music. This follows up he brand new song “Lens” that came with a second version featuring Travis Scott, his original track “Chanel”, his “Biking” collaboration with Tyler, The Creator and Jay-Z as well as his “Slide” collaboration with Calvin Harris and Migos.

Young Thug switches things up on this new version of the track as he raps in a calm manor without using autotune, and perfectly matches the relaxed vibe of the guitar-based song. Hopefully Frank keeps up this level of output as we can’t get enough of these new songs. Check out the track here on blonded RADIO. Enjoy!

Listen To Frank Ocean & Travis Scott’s Surprise New Collaboration “Lens”

Frank Ocean is back with even more new music! On his surprise episode 004 of his blonded RADIO Beats 1 show, he shared an incredible new song “Lens” with a second version featuring Travis Scott

This new episode of his radio show brings even more new music from Frank who has been on a roll recently. This latest output follows up recent releases “Chanel” with a version featuring A$AP Rocky, and “Biking” (ft. Tyler, The Creater and Jay Z) as well as his “Slide” collaboration with Calvin Harris and Migos.

“Lens” is sounding great as Frank sings atop the minimal, piano-based production as he even raps on it. He experiments more with autotune at points of the song as a perfect fit alongside Travis Scott on the second version. We’re not sure whether these recent releases from Frank are loose singles or part of a project, but we’re hoping he keeps up the output of new music. The full tracklist of episode 004 is below.

D.R.A.M. Links With A$AP Rocky & Juicy J for New Song “Gilligan”

D.R.A.M., one of our favorite rapper/singers from Virgina, just released the first official single since his impressive debut album last year. “Gilligan” features A$AP Rocky & Juicy J, and fans have been excited for the full version to be released after Rocky brought the other two out to perform this song at Coachella last weekend.

The beat, produced by A$AP Rocky and Juicy J, is harder than anything we heard on Big Baby D.R.A.M., with Juicy J’s Three 6 Mafia influence heavily coming through. D.R.A.M. (Does. Real. Ass. Music.) starts with a confident hook and a first verse that holds up next to the other high-profile rappers on the track. Juicy J provides an always-reliable verse about stacks and strippers, while A$AP Rocky lays down a dizzying verse with an insane amount of internal rhymes. No mention if this will be on a new project, but if it’s anything like his last rap collab it’s going to be a major hit. Enjoy!

Kendrick Lamar Says New Music Is Coming In Instagram Live Video

Kendrick Lamar just went live on Instagram and said “I got some more music” before ending the live video…. Since his album DAMN. dropped last week there have been numerous fan theories he has more music on the way. 

The theories all started when Kendrick’s producer Sounwave tweeted a cryptic message saying “what If I told you there was another version” with a image of Morpheus from the Matrix. This sent kdot fans in a whirlwind of second album theories speculating a second album would release on Easter Sunday. Kendrick’s faith is a big part of his life and music so when he died in a skit on DAMN. after dropping on Good Friday, many thought he would return with a new project for his Coachella performance on Easter. When Sunday came and went many fans gave up on a second album. However, some dedicated fans on the Kendrick reddit have kept many theories going that there is another album coming this week and Kendrick saying this makes thing interesting. The theories go very deep so be careful going down that rabbit hole…

While we don’t know if Kendrick is just messing with us or indeed has more music coming, he has our attention. See a rip of the video where he mentions new music at the end – skip to 21:05. Enjoy!

Listen To Big Boi’s New Collab ‘Kill Jill’ With Killer Mike and Jeezy Off Upcoming Album

Big Boi announced a new album on Instagram yesterday, and has shared with us the first preview from his third solo album, entitled Boomiverse. The first of two singles, “Kill Jill,” taps fellow Atlanta rappers Killer Mike and Jeezy for a hard-hitting southern banger.

While the song won’t officially be released until tonight, the snippet reassures us that we’ll get a reliable Jeezy chorus to go with Big Boi’s baritone raps. The trap drums combined with a chopped-up vocal sample sounds like it will be the perfect soundtrack for these three lyrical rappers to shine on. Check out the Apple Music preview below, and look out for an update with the full track later tonight. Enjoy!
