Keep your ears perked, Upper East Siders. The dulcet tones of R&B crooner Frank Ocean will wash over Monday’s episode of Gossip Girl. Underscoring one of the show’s signature big-event eps (playfully titled “Monstrous Ball”), Ocean’s hit “Thinkin Bout You” will be featured alongside other Channel Orange tracks “Lost,” “Super Rich Kids,” “Pyramids,” and “Sweet Life.” It’s not only the first time The CW tentpole has exclusively featured a single artist during a broadcast, it’s also the first time one of Ocean’s songs has been featured on a TV series.

Gossip Girl’s all-Ocean ep airs Monday, Nov. 12, as 9 p.m. ET.
