Frank Ocean - 'Nikes'

"Nikes" is a gorgeous and grainy representation of the rabbit hole in Frank's mind. The "Nikes" visual is a mesmerizing collection of references, symbols and guest appearances that follow the song's wayward narrative. Featuring bodies drenched in glitter, holy entities, expensive cars and Trayvon Martin tributes. The music video features tributes to victims of gun violence as well as Ocean himself covered in glitter.
