A Song Made Famous By Daft Punk Might Be Sampled On Frank Ocean’s Endless

Listen closely to “In Here Somewhere.”

Frank Ocean's visual album Endless has dropped and fans are poring over its credits, which include appearances from James Blake, Jazmine Sullivan, and Sampha among others. Some fans are suggesting that "In Here Somewhere," track 11 of the 18-track album, features an uncredited sample of The Sherbs's 1982 single "We Ride Tonight".

What sounds like a slowed down version of the simple synth part that opens the track can be heard right at the start of Ocean's song. The Australian band's single is perhaps better known as being sampled by Daft Punk on Random Access Memories track "Contact" in 2013. The credits for "In Here Somewhere" make no mention of either Daft Punk or The Sherbs. The other musicians credited on the song are Troy Noka and British artist Joe Thornalley.
