Okay, so it has now has been widely accepted that Frank Ocean has gone Missing-In-Action. He hasn’t kept up his promise on launching his new album “Boys Don’t Cry,” which was to be released in July this year.
Music lovers thought probably an announcement about the delayed launch would be made but it’s almost October and no one has heard a word from the artist. Furthermore, concerns over his whereabouts, have gripped the music world. As many fans may recollect, he had also skipped his FYF Fest engagement and the reason being “a scheduling conflict beyond our control,” as shared by his publicist.
So much is the eagerness amongst fans that Ocean’s younger brother, Ryan Breaux became the receiver of their wrath when in an instagram post he revealed that the album is finally out and his bio had the iTunes link. However, the link ended at Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” music video. Fans were then enraged over being misled.
as noted by the Independent.
So far, it is known that the artist had began work on a new album and one of his collaborators, Christophe Chassol shared details with Bet. He said, “Ocean invited me to Abbey Road to record on his album. I asked him how he heard about me. He told me his friend Diplo was listening a lot to [my album] ‘Indiamore’, and they started to listen to it, and they were wondering how I was doing the speech harmonization, so he called me. He asked me to do some speech harmonization on a song with him.”
This happened earlier in the year and it isn’t known whether the recording was for “Boys Don’t Cry” or some other project.
Twitter has been abuzz about his absence and many fans humorously blamed the recent celestial event — the Red Moon Total Lunar Eclipse — as an act by the Government to distract fans from the fact that Frank Ocean isn’t around and that he hasn’t come out with is album yet.
And not to forget the tweet from Ernest Baker
Eager fans will have to wait for Frank Ocean to surface and then make an announcement about whether or not he intends to launch his album “Boys Don’t Cry.” Fans can keep coming back to check for updates on the artist and the much-delayed album in question.
