According to the New York Times, Frank Ocean will finally release his second studio album ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ on Friday.
The album, which has been speculated on for years, will reportedly be released on Apple Music. Nonsubscribers to Apple Music will be able to hear the album after the reported two week exclusivity deal with Apple.
Ocean’s last album, ‘ORANGE,’ was released over four years ago, drawing widespread acclaim from music critics and putting Ocean on the map. The song “Thinkin’ Bout You” reached number 32 on the Billboard’s Top 100 and has been a consistent feature on radio stations ever since.
Ocean has “trolled” fans a number of times with album drop date promises, website changes, and Spotify drops of old music. Fans are keeping their fingers crossed that this time is for real.
