GTA 5 Adds A Frank Ocean Radio Station And It Has Some Good Songs
Frank Ocean gets his own station in GTA V.
Arriving in Grand Theft Auto V today alongside the new Doomsday Heist for GTA Online is a Frank Ocean radio station. Teased by the singer on his Tumblr this week, the "Blonded Los Santos 97.8 FM" channel is available in GTA V's campaign and GTA Online. The name of the station is likely a reference to Ocean's 2016 album, Blonde.
We've been listening to the station and found that it has songs by Ocean and other artists. Ocean's "Crack Rock," "Chanel," and "Ivy" are featured on the station, as is Jay Z's "Dead Presidents II," "Know Ya Wrong" by Schoolboy Q, "Rain" by SWV, and Joy Again's "On A Farm." "So In Love" by Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye's "When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You?" are also featured on the station. There are probably more, but these are the ones we've heard so far.
There is also some choice dialogue during the song breaks, including a discussion about murdering the barista when they don't have your drink order. Jump into the game for yourself to hear the songs and the dialogue.
The new radio station comes to GTA V through the game's newest update which is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The centerpiece of this is the massive Doomsday Heist, which is the first new online heist Rockstar has launched since the missions were first introduced in 2015. You can see the full patch notes for today's update here on Rockstar's website.
