Frank Ocean – Pyramids

Por @jp192 | 11-06-12

Luego del teaser de Channel Orange, Frank Ocean decidió soltar via tumblr una de las canciones que vendrán en su próximo disco, el track «Pyramids» tiene una duración de 9 minutos y cuenta con la participación de John Mayer en un solo de guitarras.

«Pyramids» a pesar de ser una canción extensa, re imagina el contexto actual y no vacila en llevar al extremo más pop los ritmos future R&B que The Weeknd publicó durante el año pasado. Frank Ocean es sensato, se mantiene fiel a su proza lúcida, la misma que vimos en «Nostalgia, Ultra» (2011); por lo mismo enfatiza la atmósfera y los adornos electrónicos que puedan favorecer el desempeño de la canción. A estas alturas, lo único que puedo asegurar es que Channel Orange ya se está candidateando como lo mejor del 2012, y eso que sólo he escuchado este track.

Después del salto pueden leer la letra de «Pyramids».

Frank Ocean – Pyramids Lyrics

Set the cheetahs on the looose

There’s a thief out on the move

Underneath our legion’s view

They have taken cleopatra

Run run run come back for my glory

Bring her back to me

Run run run the crown of our pharaoh

The throne of our queen is empty

(GREAT SYNTH BREAK)

And we’ll run to the future

Shining like diamonds in a rocky world

A rocky, rocky world

Our skin like bronze and our hair like cashmere

As we march to the rhthym

On the palace floor

Chandeliers inside the pyramid

Tremble from the force

Cymbals crash inside the pyramid

Voices fill up the halls

Set the cheetahs on the looose

Theres a thief out on the move

Underneath our legions view

They have taken cleopatra

The jewel of Africa

What good is a jewel that ain’t still precious

How could you run off on me?

How could you run off on us?

You feel like God inside that gold

I found you laying down with Samson

And his full head of hair

Found my black queen Cleopatra

Bad dreams Cleopatra

Remove her

Send the cheetahs to the tomb

Our war is over our queen has met her doom

No more she lives no more serpent in her room

No more it has killed Cleopatra

Big sun coming strong through the motel blinds

Wake up to your girl for now let’s call her Cleopatra

I watch you fix your hair

Then put your panties on in the mirror, Cleopatra

Then your lipstick, Cleopatra

Then your six inch heels

Catch her


She’s headed to the pyramid

Shes working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

Working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

Working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

Working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

Working at the pyramid tonight

Pimping in my convos

Bubbles in my champagne

Let it be some jazz playing

Top floor motel suite twisting my cigars

Floor model tv with the vcr

Got rubies in my damn chain

Whip ain’t got no gas tank

But it still got woodgrain

Got your girl working for me

Hit the strip and my bills paid

That keep my bills paid

Hit the strip and my bills paid

Keep a nigga bills paid


She’s working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

Working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

Working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

Working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

You showed up after work I’m bathing your body

Touch you in places only I know

You’re wet and you’re warm just like our bathwater

Can we make love before you go

The way you say my name makes me feel like

I’m that nigga

But I’m still unemployed

You say it’s big but you take it

Ride cowgirl

But your love ain’t free no more

(baby)
But your love ain’t free no more

She’s working at the pyramid tonight


Working at the pyramid

Working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

Working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

Working at the pyramid tonight

Working at the pyramid

(Guitar solo by John Mayer)
