There were a lot of things competing for our attention on Sunday night. Between Game of Thrones and the MTV Video Music Awards most were glued to their televisions for several hours as the weekend drew to a close, but if that applies to you then you missed the biggest surprise of the evening. Not only did Frank Ocean deliver a surprise episode of his “blonded RADIO” show on Beats 1, but he used the appearance to premiere a new song called “Provider”
I know what you’re thinking: Frank Ocean surprised us again? Yes, he did. The California based vocalist has made numerous surprise appearances on Beats 1 in recent weeks, and every time he has delivered new material. “Provider” is a smooth track with a pop radio friendly tempo that reminds us Ocean can appeal to the mainstream whenever he desires to do so. Click below to stream the song in full before it disappears from the internet for good:
Fans of Ocean will tell you “Provider” must be a song from the vocalist’s next project, which current has no release date. We cannot say for certain whether or not that is the case, but the recent surge in fresh material – coupled with his critically-acclaimed summer performances – has us believing there will be more news from Ocean in the weeks ahead.
