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?

    Bump Frank Ocean......I'm waiting on that New Edition album. Yes Sir!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    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?
    ^^^^^^
    Gatdamn. I'm dead AF

    Who the hell are all these ppl with the Twitter check-mark? Or whatever it's called. Hadn't heard of half of them. I'm gonna ask for one and see what happens.

  • https://www.wattpad.com/user/aleonhart Annie Leonhart

    On topic: didn't even know or cared he had a new album coming out. ?

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I agree with Sophia and Zachary LMAO

  • KcoolMuziq

    Sophomore albums are ALWAYS the hardest for any artist. Frank is under a lot of pressure.Plus add to that he has the weight of his sexuality being constantly brought up & scrutinized.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    1/2 them folks probably aren't even gonna buy it ??

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Somebody let me know when I give a damn..

  • Taylordanes

    why are these blogs creating so much hype around him? how much is his publicist paying these people to keep this going is my question??

  • nucynu25

    Lmao ...idk why this tickled me

  • nicelyput32

    Never heard of him.

  • yes yes, ya’ll!

    I like Frank Ocean.

    OT: the white man who punched George Zimmerman called him a "n***er lover"?!? Say what now? ? Somebody lyin'.

  • gellie

    Should've stayed in the closet if he wanted a career in RnB. I hate to be insensitive about it, but it's one thing to know...it's another thing to KNOW. All these folks gassing him up, *applause* *applause*...dude fell off a cliff right after he came out.

  • HIS4EVA

    i dont thiNk thats the recent guy though. and thats according to GZ.

  • eljjai

    huh?

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Who are these people waiting for his album to drop?? I mean, who? I'm thinking they were all born in 1995 and on.. Welp, TGIF!

  • hottlanta

    Donald Trump said he heard the album just like he saw that plane with all of that money.

  • yes yes, ya’ll!

    This from TMZ so consider the source but:

    Zimmerman claims the puncher -- a white man identified only as Eddie -- and his friends recognized him. He says one of Eddie's friends asked him to prove he was "that guy." Zimmerman says he took out his driver's license and also told the group he'd shot Trayvon in self-defense.

    According to Zimmerman, that pissed off Eddie, who then said .. "You better get the f*** out here you n***** lover, you ain't welcome here." Moments later, Zimmerman says Eddie punched him in the face.

  • yes yes, ya’ll!

    Oops. I posted a reply under my original comment that was intended for you. See above.

  • Critical_Thinking

    Auntie,

    This meme is for you...

  • Karma WhO

    He's too busy whiping ass at your local nursing home..no time to be in the booth!

  • Fendi

    Much ado about nothing. People act like Channel Orange was such a masterpiece. Hype outsells actual talent these days.

  • Fendi

    I see what you did there.

  • MsSincerity

    Lol

  • KB

    @EndlessONEder has it right. I don't understand the following and why folks are pressed.

  • KB

    You too....LOL.

  • nicelyput32

    ??

  • Jessy

    So I know who J/Jas Prince is but was this a play off words on Jay Z's investment into getting Prince's catalog on Tidal? I've been wanting to ask someone since I heard the song. I guess I could look on Genuis... LOL

  • Lolalao

    His publicist did a heck job. He's trending on Twitter, has a Snapchat filter, and people making YouTube vids about this. They did a heck of a job..

  • https://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    He wants his check from Cash Money Records.

  • Jessy

    Makes sense. Just as Jas wanted his check from Cash Money. I still think it's a double entendre tho

  • Luv Pitties

    I would love to see that interview that had Whitney making those expressions. Is anyone else tired of those Arthur memes?

  • BLACK *I*C*E*

    Who's even thinking about him??

  • Mel

    He came out the closet and his career didn't even take off like he thought it would. The only artists that can take a hiatus and have me anticipating their new music is Maxwell and Sade.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    I forgot about him.

  • Tea??

    I liked "nova cane" & "thinking bout you" songs but I never understood the hype about him ??

  • BlueCandy

    Why are people waiting for this garbage?

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I've been saying that since the first album. I'm still trying to listen to what is so great about it

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Neither do I SMH

  • kekeb

    I like Frank Ocean's music. Leave this man alone and let him perfect his art

  • PrettyMe

    He already had a career. He's a major songwriter and producer. That was his first album as an artist in the spotlight.

  • ReadingUfromTX

    That album track tho..

    DEAD

  • ThaRealist StudioGangster

    I bet he won't break his promise of dropping the soap....SMH @ these new niggas thinking that being a fucboi is cool.

  • The Last Unicorn

    Any fool that doesn't understand why there is such a huge anticipation for the new Frank Ocean album has not really listened to his work and probably do not understand what a master poet Ocean is. Frank's lyrics are epic.
