You might soon be able to save San Andreas while cruising to “Skyline To.”
The GTA series is known for its very on-point, palm trees and pavement-tinged music taste, working with the likes of DJ Shadow, Cashmere Cat, Toro y Moi, Flying Lotus and more. Now, Frank Ocean may be added to the lineup.
Dazed reported that a now-deleted post on Ocean’s Tumblr suggests the musician will be, in some capacity, joining Grand Theft Auto V. The singer posted a screenshot of the music selection screen for the GTA radio, with Blonded Radio, Ocean’s Beats 1 radio show, as a possible selection.
An update for GTA online, called “Doomsday Heist,” will be released today by Rockstar Games. Ocean’s station will be called “Blonded Los Santos 97.8 FM,” which sounds like the absolute dreamiest way to soundtrack the saving of San Andreas, the Southern California-inspired metropolis GTA’s world is based in. You can watch a preview of the new game, “The Doomsday Heist,” below.
Also, a GTA radio station isn’t all Ocean hinted at on Tumblr. On Nov. 28, he suggested a new, unreleased album had been completed via a 13-word statement: “I made the album before 30. I just aint put that bitch out!”
