Frank Ocean’s “Biking” Gets the “Two Version” Rework by
More Frank. More life.
After dropping “Biking” a few weeks ago on his Beats 1 blonded RADIO show, Frank Ocean continues to follow the theme of his “two versionz” wave and dropped a solo version of the reflective track.
Frank stays true to the tone, using the bike metaphor as a notion of life’s ups and downs. But one must remain true to one’s purpose and continue to push forward.
“And how did I become so accomplished?/ ’cause I don’t see foes/ I just see a cold/ I just see a hold/ Chinks in your armor/ Like Pac in the Hummer/ Like Jigga in the summer/ Left the house like Obama/ Hit the road like a runner/ Hit the road like Road Runner/ I’m biking, I’m biking, I’m biking.” he sings.
The original version, which included verses from Tyler, The Creator and Jay Z, were replaced with verses of his own. Like most of his musical offerings, he premiered the track on the sixth episode of blonded. The song is now available on streaming services including on Apple Music, Spotify, and TIDAL.
The summer of Frank has returned and we’re here for it. Tune in below and let us know your thoughts.
