posted by Oscar June 30, 2017
Jay-Z has made his triumphant return with new album 4:44, and with it comes a new animated music video for stand-out track “The Story of O.J.” The video, which was co-directed by Jay-Z himself plus Mark Romanek (“99 Problems”), brings to life the characters as 1940s-’50s-styled cartoons, depicting the figures the Roc Nation founder talks about in his song.

For some of us non-Sprint, non-TIDAL subscribers, this visual has surfaced throughout the Internet and it’s our best way to hear some new Jay, and lucky for us, this track is a powerful and thoughtfully impactful song. See the visual above via TIDAL. Continue Reading

Frank Ocean Shares New Track feat. Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator: “Biking”

posted by Oscar April 8, 2017

Frank Ocean has graced the weekend with another new song, making use of the broadcast of the third episode of Beats 1 show blonded Radio.

The track is called “Biking” and it features Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator. The production starts off a little more organic thanks to the piano taking the lead before making way for an acoustic guitar, then taking a turn for the hazy when the verses start to pop off. HOVA provided a decent intro, but it’s Ocean’s rapping that is the true highlight throughout, but Tyler’s raspy verse isn’t too far behind either.

Peep the latest Frank Ocean offering below. Continue Reading
