Rumors have been rife about what we can expect from Ocean’s return, and we’ve got some inside scoop for you. A Reddit user by the name of onimajipy was lucky enough to catch a rehearsal for Ocean’s upcoming performance and let’s just say, it sounds like he’s got some tricks up his sleeve.

In a video shared on Reddit, Ocean can be seen practicing his 2016 hit “Nights” from his critically acclaimed album Blonde. But that’s not all. According to onimajipy, there’s a chance that Ocean will be debuting some new music during his set, including a potential club banger.

“I’m likely 50% sure I heard the new shit, it’s the club sound,” onimajipy shared in a reply. “I personally don’t enjoy club music that much but the song playing was so mesmerizing with Frank’s vocals. I ain’t never heard it, and (I) know pretty much his whole discography.”

The thought of Ocean dipping his toes into the world of dance music is enough to send fans into a frenzy. With the likes of Beyoncé and Drake experimenting with the genre, it makes perfect sense why Ocean would want to explore this new territory.

And that’s not all. BMW has also hinted at potential activity from Ocean, with an Instagram video uploaded on-site at Coachella featuring the same orange BMW E30 M3 used in the cover art of Ocean’s debut mixtape, Nostalgia, Ultra (2011). Fans are now speculating that this could be a hint at the album’s addition to digital streaming platforms.

So, there you have it folks. The return of Frank Ocean is imminent, and we’re ready for it. With potential new music on the horizon and a headline slot at one of the world’s biggest music festivals, it’s safe to say that Ocean is back and better than ever.
