New Music: John Mayer f/ Frank Ocean – ‘Wildfire’

John Mayer and Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean lends his voice to fellow singer-songwriter John Mayer on “Wildfire,” a short and sweet ballad off Mayer’s album Paradise Valley, due August 20. The Odd Future crooner brings his peaceful energy to the subtle 90-second song.

Mayer played guitar on “Pyramids” and “White” off Ocean’s album channel ORANGE and performed with him on “SNL.”

“Frank is such an interesting, deep, touched, wonderful guy,” Mayer previously told Rolling Stone. “They don’t make a lot of other Frank Oceans, and the guy is looking for another. And the way that his mind works is craving the same frequency that he’s able to communicate on, and I think he’s just searching for that kind of depth that he has inside of himself in someone else. He’s fascinating to me. He’s so great.”

Paradise Valley, which also features Mayer’s girlfriend Katy Perry, is now available to stream in its entirety on iTunes.

Jay-Z Previews New Song ‘Oceans’ Featuring Frank Ocean

Jay-Z

The countdown is on to Magna Carta Holy Grail. With exactly one week to go, Jay-Z continues to tease with more goodies. After revealing the lyrics to the Justin Timberlake-assisted “Holy Grail” earlier in the week, HipHop-N-More has unearthed the lyrics to “Oceans” featuring Frank Ocean.

Jay explains the meaning behind the piano-driven song. “It sounds like a celebration of where we are now on some big yacht, throwing champagne in the water,” he tells Rick Rubin. “But the undertow of the thing is that this is the same water that brought us here originally as slaves, so it has this old duality and how we are rewriting history.”

On July 4, Samsung will release 1 million free copies of Magna Carta Holy Grail to Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4, and Note II owners before the rest of the world receives it on July 9.

Listen to a preview of “Oceans” in the video below.
