Frank Ocean - Lens
Frank Ocean's Saturday night episode of Blonded Radio hosted two versions of "Lens." "V2" features a guest appearance from Travis Scott, while the proper version is identical outside of chopping the transitionary Travis outro. That means it stands at a three and a half minutes next to V2's six. The track finds Frank experimenting with auto-tune and builds from a simple key arrangement to a chugging 80s synth groove.
"Lens" is one of a few new standalone releases we've heard from Frank over the last few weeks. The singer shared Biking" with Jay Z and Tyler The Creator and "Chanel" (as well as a remix with ASAP Rocky) on previous episodes of his Beats 1 radio show. He also appears on Clavin Harris' recent single "Slide" alongside Migos.

Throw team on back like I tatted the Mariah
Then get the scream mask for the vert rides
Weed smoke in the sky, picture what I'm realizin'
Ain't seen rainbows in the sky since college
This thing won't last unless we're both lyin'
