Nike by Frank Ocean
in mood and verse Frank Ocean takes us on a soulful psychedelic ride filled with monstrous pain and passion. ‘Nikes’ is a trip designed to mesmerize you. Frank and provocative lyrics wrapped in swaggarific swirl of sound and complemented by arousing imagery, are all designed to seduce you. And a seduction it is. The verse gives way to the performers attempt to pull you away from your love with a promise of a night to remember. Yeah… you’ll remember it if you give in. Yeah.
Giving credit where credit is due. DoBeDo Productions produced this psychedelic mini-movie which was directed by Tyrone Lebon. Director of Photography - Adré Chemtoff and edited by Adam Biskupski. VFX by Electric Theatre Creative. ‘Nikes’ by Frank Ocean is the first single off his new album, ‘Blonde.’

Maxwell has artfully managed to transfix music lovers for more than two decades, releasing 4 studio albums, all in his own time - all duly anointed as classics. Now, the Brooklyn-born soul legend returns with his 5th album, BlackSUMMERS’night, the long-awaited second installment of his trailblazing trilogy, a powerful reminder that great music really is about more than moving the twitter needle.
The first single, the stunning “Lake By The Ocean” kick-crosses diced-up drum grooves to the singer’s undulating sensuality. His legendary vocal nuances are even richer now, commanding our attention with less on blackSUMMERS’night, seductively shifting intonation and meaning as he reaches for more than just a reprise on the sequel; a master fully in charge of his instrument.

Photographers are inspired by a sista’s presence and/or she is curious and inspired by the images in Pangea and this leads to discussions creating captures of afrosensual glamour, possibly as earthSistas. It takes a level of boldness to step in front of the camera, baring your natural beauty for the world to see. And such an action is not for everyone. But every woman should have the opportunity to explore her inner diva. Thirty Minutes in the Garden is a way to do that from an afrosensual perspective.
