Frank Ocean Taps Young Thug for “Slide on Me” Remix
And Frank Ocean's back with yet another ostensibly eclectic collaboration, this one with Young Thug. "Slide on Me" is a laid-back jam fueled by gentle-guitar and the pleasant mix of Thugger and Mr. Ocean's vocals. You can bet this will end up being on the soundtrack to your summer.
"See you peepin out the peep hole/Gambling with your life, Cee-Lo/Three strikes and they all been gold/Three strikes and they all been gold/That's low, oh/That's low," Thugger half-sings during his verse. He's also got an interesting reference to Janet Jackson.
A Thugger-less version of "Slide on Me" appeared on Ocean's Endless album, a project he dropped toward the end of 2016. Ocean premiered this updated version of the track earlier this morning on his Beats 1 radio show, Blonded RADIO.
Of course, this is just the latest bit of new heat Ocean's given us through his show. On Saturday (April 22), the singer premiered two new tracks, with one featuring Travis Scott. The first is a piano-driven track called "Lens." Using a healthy dose of Auto-Tune, Ocean reflects on the intricacies of a romance in the hook.
The second track was "Lens V2," an updated version of "Lens" that features an appearance from Travis Scott, who simply adds his verse to the original "Lens." Both versions are very dope. You can check out the "Slide on Me" remix below.
