Frank Ocean’s “blonded RADIO” Returns With a New Episode: Listen

Music, News

Frank Ocean’s Beats 1 radio program “blonded RADIO” is back with a new episode. It’s live streaming now; check it out here.

Vegyn and Roof Access have returned to host the episode alongside Ocean himself. It marks the first new installment of the show since the 2018 Christmas episode aired last December. The show kicked off with a clip of Justice’s recent DJ set at the first-ever PrEP+, Ocean’s new queer club night in New York City. Check out the tracklist below, which will updated live as the episode progresses.

The new episode of “blonded RADIO” follows the reveal of several new songs earlier today, “Dear April” and “Cayendo.” Remixes of the two tracks were previewed at PrEP+ and were produced by Justice and Sango respectively. The songs are being sold as vinyl singles via his website and are not yet available to stream online.

At one point, Ocean seemed to address a complaint from a party-goer who said their phone was slapped out of their hand at the party. He said he was contemplating changing the rules before saying, “If you filmin’ yourself or a neighbor, well you know what? Nah… ‘cuz you played too much… Read the signs. But I love it when you dance. I love it.” (The house rules for PrEP+ included “No photos or videos are allowed” and “The dance floor is for dancing.”)
