Frank Ocean

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?
