Fresh off taking home his first Golden gramophone for debut full-length Channel Orange, R&B innovator Frank Ocean has unveiled the latest single selection off the universally-acclaimed set. A soulfully cynical examination of upper-class ennui, Super Rich Kids boasts a catchy, piano-driven beat by Ocean’s constant collaborator, Malay, and a chorus interpolated from Mary J. Blige classic Real Love. Joining his Odd Future colleague on the guest tip, Earl Sweatshirt lends his wry, polysyllabically-rhymed flows to verse two. This record can be found, along with previous singles Pyramids, Sweet Life, Thinkin’ Bout You and Lost, on Frank Ocean’s freshman LP, out now via Def Jam.
