Frank Ocean has released his first solo music since albums Blonde and Endless: the gorgeous cut for his song 'Chanel'.

He premiered the song on the second episode of his 'blonded RADIO' show on Beats 1 on Friday evening, shortly after featuring on Calvin Harris track 'Slide' alongside Migos.

Ocean also made two Tumblr posts to accompany the track release: one featuring art with the fashion brand's famous logo, and another showing the song's lyrics in an interesting pattern.

A version of the song featuring A$AP Rocky was also played on Beats 1.

Listen to the solo version below - it's available on Tidal, iTunes and Spotify.

The song opens with the lines: "My guy pretty like a guy/And he got fight stories to tell/I see both sides like Chanel/See both sides like Chanel."

Ocean's collaboration with Calvin Harris and Migos - 'Slide' - is already being tipped as one of the songs of the summer.

The Scottish DJ had been teasing the track for weeks over Snapchat before revealing its title on Twitter.
