As if having two new Frank Ocean albums last year wasn't enough, the Oceanic one now has a show, blonded RADIO, on Beats 1.

While he's seemingly applying the same "on-his-own-time" approach to his broadcast schedule as he does his own music, this new venture does open the door for new Frank Ocean music to arrive more frequently than ever. On episode two, he gave us a full hour of his new track "Chanel," but that's not all.

Sprinkled in the "Chanel" shower was a remix of the track with Harlem hitmaker A$AP Rocky. Both tracks have been well received, not just for the disarming melody and catchy hook, but as an honest affirmed and empowering statement from the perspective of bisexuality.
