On Christmas Day, Frank Ocean delivered a surprise gift to us all in the form of a special episode of his Beats 1 show blonded RADIO.

Co-hosted by Vegyn and Roof Access, “blonded Xmas" featured an hour long set of selected holiday music ranging from Whitney Houston's "Joy to the World" to Gucci Mane's "St. Brick Intro." After giving Stevie Wonder's "Ave Maria" a spin, Ocean asked Siri to explain what the term “Ave Maria” meant which was extremely delightful.

This marks Ocean's first time back on the radio show since his "blonded: Midterm" special in early November. During that time, he also switched his Instagram account from private to public. Scroll down for the full tracklist and listen to the archived holiday episode here.
