Titled “Hero,” the track plays to each of the artists’ strengths from the get go. Frank Ocean reminded his he’s still got the best pipes in music right now. Mick Jones and Paul Simonon crafted a melodic beat which sounds like it could be right off Sandanista!. And kick-drums abound which were presumably brought by Diplo.
They kept it short and sweet (under three minutes long), so you probably spent more time reading this than listening to the song.
I’m a spring intern at RVA Mag and GayRVA. I recently got my degree in journalism from Virginia Tech, where I also wrote for the Collegiate Times newspaper. I spent the first half of my life as an impatient New Yorker, but I grew up here in Richmond, buying skateboards from Dominion, seeing shows at Alley Katz, and watching VCU Rams basketball games. I like everything bagels, wasting my money on clothes I don’t need, moombahton music, and cycling. I probably fell down putting on my pants this morning.
