Friday night, Frank Ocean surprised fans with a new track, "Biking" in the third episode of his Beats1 Radio Show, "blonded RADIO." This comes on the tail of  Ocean's last single, "Chanel," released on the second episode of the radio show. The track features Jay Z and Ocean's fellow Odd Future confidant, Tyler the Creator.

The track opens up with Jay Z's verse and subtly transitions into a pool of soft beats where Ocean plays with words, juxtaposing mindful existential questions (how much one can handle) and a mindless activity (riding a bike): "God gave you what you could handle/ Gave you what you could handle/ I got the grip like the handle/ And I'm bikin'/ I'm bikin' with me and my Daniel."

Tyler, the Creator comes in in the third sliver of the song, where his verses adds brisk beats to Ocean's melancholic voice.

"Biking" was played at the end of the radio show after streaming a playlist featuring artists such as Kanye West, Young Thug, Kelhani, Kanye West, Babyface and Death Grips. Listen to the track and the playlist below.
