Frank Ocean - Pyramids


Frank Ocean recently released this track which is off his upcoming album Channel Orange, to be released on July 17th. This 10 minute track is split up into two parts, with (possibly) the same character in both. The lyrics suggest Ocean's extensive knowledge of Egyptian history, with both overt and subtle references. In the first part of the song, he describes the actual Egyptian pharaoh Cleopatra, while in the second part, he sings about what is probably a modern-day interpretation of Cleopatra. At the least, they share a namesake. The ending guitar solo features John Mayer and gives the song a feel similar to The Weeknd.
