blonded is the Beats 1 radio show and label company that is conducted by Frank Ocean. His show typically airs on Apple Music during the weekend. The show includes artists of multiple different backgrounds and different genres. Selections could satisfy music lovers from all eras, with artists such as Aretha Franklin, Usher, Thundercat, Whitney Houston, Mary Lou Williams and many others.
On his second episode, he debuted the track “Chanel”, which is his first solo track released since his critically acclaimed album blond.
Now, it has become tradition on his show to air new music at the end of each episode. Songs like “Biking”, “Lens”, and “Slide on Me (Remix)” have all been premiered on this show.
The playlist for each episode is posted after the episode goes live, and Frank has always put a picture of a close friend of his, with blonde hair.
