Early this morning, Frank Ocean premiered his new single “Chanel” on the second episode of his Apple Music radio show, Blonded. In the song, Frank Ocean embraces his bisexuality by stating in the first line “My guy pretty like a girl”.
The hook of the song is what really reminds us of Frank Ocean’s master penmanship.
“I see both sides like Chanel.”
A clever double entendre:
- C both sides like the Chanel Logo
- Coco Chanel was known to have had lesbian affairs on the side making her bisexual. Frank Ocean is insinuating that he sees both sexes like Coco Chanel.
Along with the release of the single Ocean also made two Tumblr posts to accompany the song. One features art incorporating the iconic Chanel logo and the other displays the lyrics of the song in a peculiar manner. There is also a remix of the single featuring A$AP Rocky.
Does this mean that we can expect to hear more from Frank Ocean in the near future?
