Grand Theft Auto V's Newest Radio Station Is Hosted by Frank Ocean

Grand Theft Auto V's Newest Radio Station Is Hosted by Frank Ocean

God bless Frank Ocean's Tumblr.

The name of the station, for the benefit of people (like me) who have no idea what "blonded" means, comes from Frank Ocean's real-life Blonded Radio show, which as Wikipedia explains ran from February to August 2017 on Beats 1. After his critical breakthrough, Channel Orange, Ocean went underground for several years, toying with his follow-up. The station is part of the GTA Online: The Doomsday Heist. Hosted by Frank Ocean, Vegyn, Roof Access and Fed, blonded Los Santos 97.8FM is an eclectic mix of savory soul, hip-hop and deep cuts and is the first new radio station added to the game since 2015's The Lab. 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.

"Grand Theft Auto Online" developer Rockstar kept news of Ocean's involvement in the update a closely guarded secret, but they have a long history of including acclaimed songs on the in-car radio stations ever since releasing "Grand Theft Auto III" back in 2001. After that, check out some of the game's other DJs, including Flying Lotus and Kenny Loggins.
