Watch the Official Video: Frank Ocean – Nikes
Just a couple days after dropping his visual album Endless, Frank Ocean returns with the eccentric video for “Nikes,” a song expected to land on his forthcoming LP, which was previously titled Boys Don’t Cry .
“Nikes” finds Ocean in a dream and nightmare-like trance, one filled with scattered visuals of glitter, the devil, semi-NSFW Nudty, a rapping Chihuahua, and bodies on fire. Images of models, cash, horses, S3x, and pregnant women flash before a baby is shown to close out the clip.
The five-minute video also features cameos from Trina and A$AP Rocky, who holds a framed portrait of the late A$AP Yams, followed by tributes to Pimp C and Trayvon Martin. “Pour up for A$AP,” sings Ocean. “R.I.P. Pimp C / R.I.P. Trayvon / That ni**a looked just like me.”
Aside from those acknowledgements, Ocean also celebrates iconic rap labels in the song’s lyrics, shouting out Slip-N-Slide (hence the Trina cameo) and Rap-A-Lot Records.
“Nikes” contains “two versions” overlapping one another. One is a chopped-and-screwed monologue,perhaps prompting the Rap-A-Lot reference, and the other a melodic piece filled with smooth harmonies.
The song’s release comes after a lengthy lead-up. Back in April 2015, Ocean teased Boys Don’t Cry with a Tumblr post captioned: “I got two versions. I got twooo versions…” Those lyrics now appear on “Nikes.”
