Want another Frank Ocean album to drop after Blonde? You may be waiting for a while, but don’t worry. One musician went viral this week for teaching Twitter how to create their own Ocean songs from scratch.
Singer-songwriter Nat Puff, better known by her stage name “Left At London,” put together a short video yesterday building a “Fake Ocean” song one step at a time. She starts first by joking that Ocean only uses one or two instruments in the background and that “you don’t need drums, ’cause it’s a Frank Ocean song.” Then she breaks down the lyrics, stressing that if you want to create a good Ocean song, you should invoke nature as much as possible, because “that man is a living, breathing haiku.”
“The other motifs being nostalgia, loneliness, and different names for weed that you didn’t know existed before,” Puff quips, after which singing, “stumbled through the trees / the trees, you and me / we were kids, now we’re grown.”
As for the chorus? Puff stresses you can choose “any random song from the ’60s or ’70s,” rip the chorus, pitch shift it, sing a bunch of harmonies, and throw it all together. So of course, she chose John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” Then she beat shifts it and starts rapping about how “this ain’t real your man give me head” and being “freshly drenched in that coochie water.” Catch the whole video below.

Puff quickly went viral, in part because her “Fake Ocean” song actually does sound like something Frank Ocean would put together.

Some listeners even want her to release the track. But then again, a real Frank Ocean song would never drop, right?

Meanwhile, Puff also went viral on Sunday after joking that hip-hop radio stations won’t stop playing Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” for 13 hours straight.
“Please, for the loveGod god, stop playing ‘SICKO MODE’—” a caller complains, to which she responds, “No, no, no, don’t say that, it will make Drake angry” as the song starts blasting.
