After dropping “Chanel” and “Biking,” Frank Ocean unleashes two version of “Lens,” a new song premiered through blonded Radio. The first is a solo edition, while the second is a Travis Scott-assisted remix.
Over a soothing beat, an Auto-Tuned Frank harmonizes about Mariah Carey, Rally’s, and freeways, before touching on his partner’s timeless qualities.
“Fake flowers, no water needed,” sings Ocean. “Real life drowned by the weekend / No wins, call it timeless / No ends ’cause you’re timeless.”
“Lens V2” follows with a twist from Travis Scott. Over an extended version of the original, La Flame comes through with vocal effects too. “Cameras on me, I need tints,” he sings. “Smiling but inside, I’m feeling bent / Come direct please, I can’t take no hints.”
Prior to dropping “Lens” and “Lens V2,” Frank unleashed “Chanel” and its A$AP Rocky-assisted remix via blonded Radio. He also teamed up with Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator on “Biking.”
It’s unclear whether these tracks are meant to make up a new project or whether they are unreleased cuts from last year’s Endless or blonde.
