Frank Ocean Drops New Songs “Lens” and “Lens V2″ Featuring Travis Scott
Unlike the post-Channel Orange days, Frank Ocean has been very active with the new music following his 2016 release, Blonde. The singer aired a new episode of his Blonded RADIO show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 last night (April 22), and debuted two new bangers, "Lens" and "Lens V2" featuring Travis Scott.
The subdued single is driven by solemn piano chords and finds Frank using Auto-Tune to express his thoughts on a complicated relationship. "Despite our history/Some way at night, you're stuck when you think of me/Despite the life I lead/All this life in me/Spirits watch me, pants down/Can't be 'barrassed of it/I feel their smiles on me (smiles on me)," he croons on the chorus.
The V2 version keeps all other elements the same, but adds Travis Scott to the mix. "Yeah, cameras, cameras on me, I need tints (watch, tints)/Smilin' but inside I'm feelin' bent (watch, tints)/Come direct, please I can't take no hints (yah!, yeah)/Bicycles and pegs, yeah/Ride low, duck the feds, watch/Du-rag on my head, yeah/Money on my head, yeah/Cameras, cameras on me when I'm bent/Mix the waterfall right behind the tent (yeah)/Backseat, spacious, I pulled up, spaceship, yeah," he spits on his verse.
Only four episodes in and Frank's Blonded radio has become the stop for new music from the Odd Future crooner, similar to the way Drake's OVO Sound Radio has been the plug for many Drizzy exclusives. This is the second time Frank has debuted a double dose on his internet radio show. Last month, he unveiled "Chanel" and the "Chanel" Remix featuring A$AP Rocky on the broadcast.
Earlier this month, he put out the Jay Z and Tyler, The Creator collab, "Biking."
