Frank Ocean Drops NSFW “Nikes” Video
After holding out for what seems like a decade, Frank Ocean finally dropped some new material, yesterday (Aug. 19), in the form of his new Endless visual album. But there's more where that came from. Frank drops the new LP's apparent lead single with the video for "Nikes."
The surreal NSFW video seems like a dream state with various quick shots of random things and people. Frank appears, wasted, sipping on something out of a Styrofoam cup while sitting between some supped-up rides. "These bitches want Nikes/They looking for a check/Tell em it ain't likely/Said she need a ring like Carmelo/Must be on that white like Othello/All you want is Nikes/But the real one's just like you/Just like me," he sings.
While the Odd Future crooner sings on, a screwed voice talks over his lyrics adding to the complexity of the track. During the verse, things get more surreal with Frank singing, "Gotta love passion, gotta love trade/Gotta keep the scales, a little mermaid/We out by the pool, some little mermaids/Female in jail/Twigs with the bed/Now that's a real mermaid."
A$AP Rocky and Trina make cameos in the eye-catching clip.
After catching the wrath of fans, Ocean is really coming through, looking to drop two full projects in the span of a couple days. Endless features Jazmine Sullivan, Sampha, James Blake, Om’mas Keith, The London Symphony Orchestra and Arca on the song “Mine.”
The album previously known as Boy Don't Cry will be coming out this weekend.
