Nearly 36 hours after Frank Ocean debuted "Lens" during an episode of Blonded Radio, the singer unexpectedly returned to Beats 1 early Monday morning with an updated take on his Endless song, "Slide on Me," featuring a new verse by Young Thug.

The Atlanta rapper opens up the new version of "Slide on Me" with a characteristically amorphous verse that unfurls over the song's acoustic guitar melody. Ocean's contribution is largely unchanged from the Endless original, albeit with a little more dub echo on his vocals on the chorus.

The new "Slide on Me" is the latest track that Ocean has premiered post-Blonde on his Blonded Radio, joining two versions of "Lens" (one solo, the other featuring Travis Scott), two versions of "Chanel" (solo and an A$AP Rocky-guesting take) and "Biking," a song with Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator.


Listen to Ocean's latest episode of Blonded Radio at Apple Music. In addition to "Slide on Me," the latest playlist featured tracks by Kanye West, Grandaddy, John Mayer, Gerry Rafferty, Marvin Gaye, D'Angelo, Suicide and a re-airing of "Lens."
