As reported last week, Frank Ocean, Diplo, and The Clash’s Mick Jones and Paul Simonon came together for a new song titled “Hero” as a part of Converse’s Three Artists, One Song initiative. No, this one won’t inspire any twerking. Rather, the single is a beautifully smooth, soulful offering that masterfully weaves together Ocean’s stunning vocals, Jones and Simonon’s electric guitar skills, Diplo’s chameleon-like production, and a moving children’s choir. The result, as expected, is immense.
