Frank Ocean bounces back once again with some more music! After almost two years, Frank Ocean drops new single ‘DHL’ during his new episode of ‘Blonded’, his Beats 1 Radio show. Could this be the beginning of his new era? We hope so!
You may be wondering why this is such a big deal for us and so many of Ocean’s fans. As many fans complained before, it had taken him four years to release his sophomore album “Blonde“. The fact that he premiered his new song on his radio show hints to the fans that a new project is coming. Considering there is a four-year gap between his debut and second album, we can only assume he will release his third sometime next year. ‘Channel Orange’ was released in 2012 while “Blonde” was released in 2016. We are only a couple of months away from 2020, so the pattern makes sense, right? Not to mention, he released his last single over a year ago (‘Lens’).
Rising back from the dead.
Now, let’s get more into this fire track he just dropped! Assuming this is what he’s talking about, DHL is an international shipping company. Some of us not might be familiar with it because it’s more popular in Europe and Asia. Even though we can never be sure about Frank’s metaphors (because he’s THAT brilliant), many people have come to the conclusion that it’s about drugs. As he repeats in the chorus:
“Got a pack, came from the DHL
Just got up with a pack
I got a pack, came from the DHL
Just got up on a pill
Got a pack, fuckin’ with a Saturday night chill”
Frank Ocean, ‘DHL’
That’s not all, y’all! He also hints to us that more music is coming soon; he has many unreleased songs, as he says in his second verse:
“Old files just turned two, yeah, flu, yeah
Still sound like it’s comin’ soon, comin’ soon, yeah”
“New files sittin’ on my drive, nothin’ new, yeah
New vibes and I can’t get down, what you do, yeah”
Frank Ocean “DHL”
We sure hope our predictions are right! We’ve all missed Frank Ocean, and we are starving for more music. We do understand, however, as he just opened up his own queer night club, ‘PrEP+’ a few nights ago. It’s also been confirmed that he shared snippets of some unreleased songs.
2020 is the start of a brand new decade, so we wouldn’t be surprised if artists started reappearing for this special year. We know for sure that Harry Styles will release a new project, along with 5SOS and possibly Rihanna. Despite these being rumors, we are crossing our fingers AND our toes!
