Releasing lyrics to a song before releasing the actual song is a growing phenomenon in the hip-hop world. The artist formerly known as Jay-Z recently used this strange technique to promote his latest LP, but the results were pretty lame. Frank Ocean has done a much better job, probably because he’s not trying to cram an album down our throats.
Discussing Versace and much more, the Odd Future singer flexes his superb writing skills just as gracefully as you’d expect. Headlines will try to frame the song as a Chris Brown diss, but there’s so much more going on. If you read the lyrics to the cadence of “Versace,” it’s even more rewarding. When the vocals are released, the fun will really begin, but for now, read along below.
