Tyler, The Creator and Frank Ocean Reconnect on New Song “911 / Mr. Lonely”
The new song finds Tyler, who last collabed with Ocean back in April on "Biking," reflecting on his own loneliness as he spits about looking for a special somebody to spend his time with.
"I am the loneliest man alive, but I keep on dancing to throw them off/I'm gon' run out of moves 'cause I can't groove to the blues, if you know any DJ's tell them to call me at 9-1-1.." raps Tyler, who also released his A$AP Rocky-assisted track, "Who Dat Boy" just yesterday.
That's just the "911" part of the song. After that we get "Mr. Lonely," where the beat switches up to a more frenetic pace and Tyler's thoughts seem to race as quickly as the new instrumental. It still ends with him referencing the number "911," though.
For his part, Ocean pretty much plays it cool, serving up his typically emotive vocals as a sort of background music that blends in seamlessly with the diverse instrumental while still adding a thick layer of dopeness to the track. It's no wonder he was almost featured on Young Thug's newest album.
