Audio: Frank Ocean, “Provider”

Frank Ocean

It’s been a really lucky 12 months for Frank Ocean fans. Since he shared the impeccably composed Endless and Blonde albums last August, he’s also been generously dropping self-contained tracks via his blonded RADIO show on Beats 1. The latest is a beachy new jam titled “Provider.” Atop mellow vibes in the track’s production, Frank’s signature vocals flicker in and out of focus as his off-kilter lyrical pattern explores provisions of patience, spirituality and romance. The song comes with an accompanying lyric video which can be seen on Ocean’s official website.

Episode 007 of blonded RADIO didn’t end there. The elusive angel of sound also dropped a surprise freestyle over 2 Chainz’s “Rolls Royce Bitch.” Listen to the tempo-defying “Provider” below.
