Popular Music: The Podcast

Oct 16, 2017

In episode THIRTY-FOUR of Popular Music: The Podcast, Analise and Steven go into deep analysis over Frank Ocean’s “Nikes,” the first single from his album, “Blonde.” We’ll go through everything from Frank’s early years, how he departed ways from Def Jam with a “contract” album, and how there might even be a lyrical storytelling thread between Frank and Joni Mitchell. Analise will try to convince you of this. You be the judge.

 No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Steven Ray Morris and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
