Ocean premiered “Biking” on April 7, with the familiar strains of “Futura Free” — the last track off his last album, Blonde — giving way to piano and Jay Z putting a new spin on an old adage: “What goes around comes around."
Acoustic guitar strums and Ocean's voice wash over us shortly thereafter, as does talk of making toasts at his friends' weddings and the physical stress inflicted by the simple act of biking up and downhill. Tyler comes in far more subdued than we're used to hearing him, speaking of sapphires soaking in his own sweat. (He then shared his verses from the track on Twitter, above.)
Ocean closed out the third episode of blondedRADIO with a few more rounds of the “Biking,” and hey — no complaints here. He played “Chanel” on a loop when he dropped that, too, and we're very into “Biking” getting imprinted on our brains in similar fashion.
