God bless Frank Ocean‘s Tumblr. The most recent blessing Frank has revealed to us through his Tumblr is his own Grand Theft Auto radio station called blonded Los Santos 97.8 FM. (blonded is Ocean’s Apple Music Beats 1 radio show where he has dropped singles “Chanel,” “Biking,” “Lens” and “Provider” without warning this year.)
According to Pitchfork, Ocean’s GTA station’s playlist features himself, JAY-Z, Future, Lil Uzi Vert, Migos, ScHoolboy Q, Aphex Twin, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye and more. The station is available today (Dec. 12) with the game’s “Doomsday Heist” update.
Prior to teasing his GTA radio station, Ocean took to Tumblr to respond to rumors about a new album stemming from comments he’s made in the past about having five albums before he turns 30. Ocean turned 30 on Oct. 28 and currently has four released projects to his name: nostalgia, ULTRA (2011), channel ORANGE (2012), Endless (2016) followed directly by Blond.
“‘Well I made the album before 30,” Ocean posted to this Tumblr. “I just ain’t put that bitch out!’ – QUOTES FROM AN INTERVIEW I HAVEN’T GIVEN HAHA”
Watch a trailer for the new GTA update, sadly without Ocean, and a sneak peek at Ocean’s in-game playlist, below.
