Frank Ocean where have you been? Apparently making new music! In case you missed it, the singer/rapper released a new song recently, Chanel, and it may be just what the fans wanted. Especially if you were not feeling his recent albums, Blonde and Endless. 

We absolutely LOVE this track. It reminds us of the music and singles that first made us Frank Ocean fans. Frank dropped Chanel during the second episode of Blonded radio show on Apple Radio Friday and it now seems to be making waves with people everywhere. The song also has a version remixed with rapper, A$AP Rocky, which only makes it even more appealing.

Frank took to Tumblr to release the lyrics to the song in a true “artsy” kind of way:

frank ocean chanel lyrics hey mikey atl

We know that’s confusing so we have the lyrics posted on the next page. Happy listening!

[Verse 1]
My guy pretty like a girl
And he got fight stories to tell
I see both sides like Chanel
See on both sides like Chanel
Swimming laps through pool water
Heated like I’m underworld
Hide my tattoos in Shibuya
Police think I’m of the underworld
12 treat a nigga like he 12
How you looking up to me and talking down?
Can’t you see I am the big man? (Big man)
God level I am the I am (whoa)
Now film it with that drone cam
In the pink like Killa Cam
Put a zoom on that stick, Noé
Up so close I’m on that kill
Remote controller on your lower back
Yes the good
Dick could roll the eyes back in the skull
Rolling when you ride, poppin’
Rolling when you ride
Ride the Rodman
Got one that’s straight acting
Turnt out like some dirty plastic (Ride)
2016 burnt some discs
2017 ideas playing off a Walkman
This a cult not a clique on the net
With a cup in a cup, Actavis
That’s a double edge, “issa knife”
And I don’t like to fight ’til I’m fighting
Revenge in the air make my lungs sick
Chopper in the sky like a gun trick
Clips on clips like Mikey
It’s really all[Hook]
I see both sides like Chanel
See on both sides like Chanel[Bridge]
It’s really you on my mind
It’s really you on my mind
It’s really you
It’s really you on my mind[Verse 2]
V both sides of the 12
Steam both sides of the L
Freeze smoke rings and they hail
Sleet snow grind for the wealth
Whole team diamonds is real
Showed ’em how to shine by they selves
You need a cosign for your health
I need that bitch to grind on my belt
I know you need to try for my belt
I know you seen it driving itself
No matte black on the ride ’cause it’s stale
But it’s stealth

[Hook]
I see both sides like Chanel
I see both sides like Chanel

[Outro]
My pockets snug
They can’t hold my 7
They banned my Visa
My Amex and Mastercards
I got new money
And it’s all cash
I got new bags
And they all collabs
I rubber band a bunch of thousand dollar Delta gift cards
Amazing the cash online unknown
Blazing the dash counting money at home

My pockets snug
They can’t hold my 7
They banned my Visa
My Amex and Mastercards
I got new money
And it’s all cash
I got new bags
And they all collabs
I rubber band a bunch of thousand dollar Delta gift cards
Amazing the cash online unknown
Blazing the dash counting money at home

Brandy and Monica gaves us the “Verzuz Battle” we have been waiting for! The two legendary singers who rose to fame as adolescents in the nineties are now fully grown women with rivaling musical catalogues and a history of personal beefs.

However, tonight, Brandy and Monica settled their issues–off-screen of course–and reached over 1.2 million viewers with their highly anticipated Verzuz Battle, creating a moods and moments none of us will ever forget!

Back and forth the ladies delivered hit after hit and bop after bop; which had many Generation X-ers and Millennials reconnecting with their childhood. From Brandy we heard hits like “What About Us?,” “Brokenhearted (the Wanye duet),” “Sittin’ On Top Of The World,” and more. Meanwhile Monica came just as heard with classics like “So Gone,” “4 U I Will,” “Everything To Me,” “First Night,” and more.

Naturally, the ladies dabbled in fun shade; reminiscing on the alleged slap down Monica gave Brandy in their youth, and their aforementioned off-screen heart to heart to clear the air. They apparently had not spoken to each other for eight years.  Nevertheless, their honesty and ability to forgive one another was endearing and an excellent example of how two people in a longstanding feud can heal one another.

 Honestly, their Verzuz Battle left us wanting a joint album from them. Brandy and Monica are magic together, and this is the closest match up in the history of the Instagram Live series. To us, there was no clear winner.

The positive commentary and feedback from thousands of celebrities and influencers; and over a million fans shows we definitely need R&B to make a comeback. The singers we have grown to know and love are good for more than just features and hooks. Brandy and Monica PLEASE go on tour! We will definitely buy tickets!
