Back in October, shortly after his string of eight consecutive shows to christen Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Jay-Z cooked something up in the studio with Frank Ocean and Pharrell. Now we may have some information about that collab: Ocean is appearing on Magna Carta Holy Grail track “Oceans” (get it?!) based on another lyric sheet revealed by Hov. It’s unclear if Pharrell had a hand on the album’s seventh track, but based on the initial MCHG teaser ad, we know he’s involved in the album.
Of course, Jay and Ocean worked together on Watch The Throne cuts “No Church In The Wild” and “Made In America” in 2011. Hov also enlisted Justin Timberlake on the album, and we’re sure some other big-name features will be revealed ahead of its July 4 release. Head below to see the “Oceans” lyric sheet (which, unlike “Holy Grail” and “Heaven,” doesn’t lift any iconic ’90s rock lyrics).
