Frank Ocean recently took to Instagram Stories to share a short one-minute preview of his new song. He hasn’t provided any other information about the upcoming music.

Ocean has not released a new song since the release of “Cayendo” and “Dear April” in April 2020. He had hinted at a new single for the end of that year but later scrapped the plan.

In December 2021, Ocean showcased a nine-minute untitled song during a Christmas special on his Apple Music 1 Blonded Radio show but didn’t officially release it.

Lovin On Me at midnight EST,” he wrote on Instagram ahead of the release of the track.
