Frank Ocean makes cameo on Tyler, The Creator’s album, fans say 'his voice is all I need'
Frank Ocean is one of the very few musicians who enjoy a tremendous fan following despite releasing very few projects. The Grammy-winning singer, who usually stays low-key, was trending on the Internet over the weekend after his loyal fans got elated after hearing his voice on Tyler, The Creator’s song ‘Lemonhead’ from his brand new album ‘Call Me If You Get Lost.’
Even though Tyler never dropped a hint about collaborating with Ocean, the latter’s fans erupted with joy after noticing his name on the credits of the song. The California native’s surprise cameo on the track lasted only four lines as he hopped on ‘Lemonhead’s outro. The song also features assistance from DJ Drama on the backing vocals and 42 Dugg on the second verse. Speaking of new music, Doja Cat also dropped her third album ‘Planet Her’ while Ed Sheeran too made headlines for his new single ‘Bad Habits’ on June 24.

Frank Ocean’s surprise cameo on ‘Lemonhead’
Tyler, The Creator’s sixth album ‘Call Me If You Get Lost’ is stacked with 16 tracks, and ‘Lemonhead’ is placed at number three. While Tyler and Dugg overtake the entire song, Ocean appears briefly at the very end. Ocean goes for a spoken word while poking fun at Tyler and references Chinese contemporary artist and activist Ai Wei Wei. “My bro is runnin’ his finger around the Ai Weiwei, Ai Veivei bowl. I got that s**t sittin’ on my counter like a fruit bowl, that’s like a hundred racks. I like the color green, in every shade. I like life. Mine, like, my life. Don’t f**king bite, y’all ni**as love to steal.”
Tyler, The Creator’s new album also features top hip-hop artists like Lil Wayne, Ty Dolla $ign, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Brent Faiyaz, Domo Genesis, Lil Uzi Vert, Pharrell Williams and others. Just like his previous albums, the latest one is also written, composed and arranged by Tyler. He first teased his fans with the album when billboards with the phrase “Call Me If You Get Lost” followed by a telephone number started popping up in cities like Los Angeles, London, and Paris. The hotline played snippets of the rapper’s new music and a voicemail conversation between Tyler and his mother. He had also revealed the cover art of the album earlier which is a driving license featuring the close-up photo of the rapper. Fans can plug into his brand new album right here.
