Frank Ocean Pairs With Tyler, The Creator For ‘Channel Orange’ Bonus Track “Golden Girl”

Frank Ocean‘s well-received debut album Channel Orange is now available online — and it’s already blowing up iTunes as the #1 album download at the moment. When the physical copy drops on July 17, you’ll be able to pick it up with the bonus track “Golden Girl”. (Well, unless you’ll be doing your shopping at Target.) Ocean’s Odd Future member Tyler, The Creator joins him on this sweet and breezy, methodically-paced tune that is not about the beloved TV series about four old women living together in Miami. Listen below.

Frank Ocean feat. Tyler, The Creator – “Golden Girl”

Though he made headlines this month for sharing a personal story about falling in love with a man when he was 19 that has since been called his “coming out”, the object of Frank’s affections in “Golden Girl” is a female. Sings Ocean: “You’re a girl on this Island, I’m a boy from America / My flight leaves tonight, but I don’t think I’m going backwards / I won’t be going backwards / You’re my golden girl / You’re the one I’ve chosen, girl.”
