Frank Ocean, Diplo & The Clash Collaborate on New Track ‘Hero’

By Shannon Carlin

Frank Ocean has yet to announce a follow-up to his 2012 album, Channel Orange, but he’s giving fans a little consolation prize with his brand new track “Hero.”

The track isn’t officially his though, it’s actually part of Converse’s musical series, Three Artists, One Song, which has different artists teaming up for one collaborative track. This time around, Ocean is teaming up with Diplo and The Clash’s guitarist Mick Jones and bassist Paul Simonon.

On the ’60s inspired track, which has a little bit of The Clash’s punk rock edge, Ocean sings about and letting everyone know, “I’m a black man/I can dunk.” Perhaps a nod to the product he’s hawking. The little kids choir, which joins in halfway through, gives it that same intimate, soulful feel Ocean brought to Beyoncé “Superpower” off her latest album. And perhaps, gives us a hint of what’s to come with Ocean’s next release.
