Frank Ocean fans are on a good mood following reports that the much-awaited album of the singer, “Boys Don’t Cry” ” is dropping on Friday (June 3).
One Twitter user named @SnatchedBops, seemed to have found out that Frank’s latest album will finally be released on Friday.
Time magazine wrote Ocean’s fans seem convinced that the album is finally making its way to record stores after almost a year of delay. Although some are still skeptical about it, considering the previous false reports, many are excited that the release is finally happening.

The magazine noted some celebrity endorsements such as from Chance the Rapper, who called the album “amazing,” while James Blake said “Boys Don’t Cry” is “better” than the previous work of Ocean.
The Fader noted that Frank Ocean first hinted the release of his new album in a Tumblr post in April 2015. In the post, the singer was seen posing in front of a pile of records. He captioned the photo: “I got two versions. I got twoooo versions,” and also used the hashtags #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY. His rep then confirmed to Billboard that Ocean’s album along with a magazine will be release in July 2015.
Months passed but no new album from Ocean was released. However, the teasing never ends.
In February, there were reports that a very private listening session with Ocean went down in New York City and a short clip of the session found its way online. The following month, Ocean’s “Boys Don’t Cry” album had leaked online, but the clip and audio in soundclouds have been removed immediately.
“I always tell people: When he’s ready, the world is gonna get it. It could be tomorrow… well, not tomorrow but maybe a month,” Malay said. “We’ve all been working hard. He’s been working super hard. I feel like he’s working harder than he’s ever worked in his life. I’m excited for everyone to hear it. I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised, for sure.”
In February, Kanye West released “The Life Of Pablo,” in which Frank Ocean contributed vocals to the original version of “Wolves,” The Fader wrote. However, the track was separated and made it a 38-second standalone version which West called “Frank’s Track.”
