This is joy, this is pleasure

Grand Theft Auto Online’s coolest feature is its constantly updating number of radio stations. The latest DJ to get his own show on Los Santos’ local airwaves is perhaps Rockstar’s coolest choice yet: Frank Ocean.

I admit to having a slight personal bias here: Frank Ocean is one of my all-time favorites. But any new content from the artist is a widespread cause for celebration. After his critical breakthrough, Channel Orange, Ocean went underground for several years, toying with his follow-up. That led to last year’s similarly successful Blonde, which is the clear inspiration behind his GTA Online station.

Blonded Los Santos 97.8 FM includes several of Frank Ocean’s own hits, alongside a fantastic mix of other artists and genres. There’s Grammy-nominated rapper Lil Uzi Vert, Marvin Gaye and Aphex Twin all in the two-hour mix, so you’ve got a very good reason to spend hours in GTA Online just on cruise control.

For Ocean fans like myself who have yet to join the huge GTA Online playerbase, there’s a complete upload of Blonded Los Santos online. Listen below for what might be the best playlist you’ll hear this week. After that, check out some of the game’s other DJs, including Flying Lotus and Kenny Loggins. (Seriously. No judgment here, though.)
