It's Friday and still there is no new music from alternative singer Frank Ocean.
The openly gay singer/songwriter promised to drop Boys Don't Cry, the follow-up to his 2012 sleeper album Channel Orange, in July. But July came and went without a peep from the 28-year-old New Orleans musician.
For some reason, fans are waiting in anticipation for this album as if Ocean is a platinum-selling R&B icon with a stack of hits in his catalog.
It's disturbing to see people so emotionally invested in an album from a mediocre artist with no track record.
Is it because this album is rumored to be gay-themed album? Or is it just because Ocean is trending on Twitter?
Random: Social Media makes Frank Ocean a way bigger star then he actually is lol

What if #FrankOcean's plan is to announce there is no album, teach us that life is full of disappointment, and fly away in his spaceship?

Forget the music at this point. I want the Frank Ocean album to drop so the Frank ocean jokes can stop.
