Frank Ocean Debuts Psychedelic ‘Nikes’ Video Ahead of Second Surprise Album Release

The gift that keeps on giving. Hours after dropping his surprise visual album, Endless, Frank Ocean treated fans to yet another music video — and he reportedly has plenty more on the way.

The Grammy Award winner, 28, debuted his new song “Nikes” and its accompanying NSFW music video on Apple Music in the early hours of Saturday, August 20. The song, which is not included on Endless, is expected to serve as the first single from Ocean’s forthcoming follow-up to the visual album.

As fans know, Ocean released Endless, a 45-minute, 18-track project, earlier this week. Shortly after the new LP dropped, Rolling Stone reported that a second album is “set for release by Apple this weekend.” The forthcoming record — which was previously called Boys Don’t Cry, but has since been scrapped for an alternate title — will serve as the singer’s official sophomore album, his first since 2012’s critically acclaimed Channel Orange.

The “Nikes” music video features dozens of models and dancers, many of them fully naked, in a series of trippy, colorful scenes. The five-minute clip also features cameos from rappers A$AP Rocky and Trina, plus a rapping Chihuahua.

“I got two versions. I got twoooo versions,” Ocean croons on the hip-hop-inspired, beat-driven track, in reference to his two new albums.

In another scene, the R&B singer rocks an angelic white jumpsuit with glitter all over his face. He sings, “We’re not in love / But I make love to you / When you’re not here / I save some for you / I’m not him, but I mean something to you.”
