After a fan asked what reggae in the future would sound like, Mayer brought up a new, unreleased song Ocean recently played for him. "I won't say the title of [the song], it's his business, but he's doing stuff right now that's so... talk about space reggae, future reggae, that’s Frank Ocean.” John Mayer played guitar on Ocean's debut album Channel Orange.

Representatives for Frank Ocean were not immediately available for comment. Calvin Harris will soon release "Slide," a new song featuring Frank Ocean and Migos.
