Frank Ocean new album Boys Don’t Cry is finally dropping this week and his fans are hoping that this is not just another trick.
After several delays, the R&B singer will finally released his long overdue album via Apple Music on Friday (Aug 5). Ocean will be linking Boys Don’t Cry with the streaming service. The album release announcement came after an Apple Music-hosted live stream video of Ocean went online.
The black-and-white streaming video featured Ocean showing up at around 9 am in an almost abandoned warehouse. At first he was seen chopping woods. He was later seen drilling holes and cutting up metal poles. From time to time, he would stop working to check his phone or drink water. Throughout the streaming, music would play in the background or the camera would switch angles. The video currently streaming at the R&B singer’s website, which appears to be working on Safari browser or mobiles only.

According to New York Times, the release of Boys Don’t Cry is also expected to include a video and a printed publication. Both will be distributed at Apple stores. The publication also cited a source saying the album will remain exclusive to Apple for two weeks before becoming more widely available.
Frank Ocean new album was expected to released last month after he posted a picture of a library book slip showing the past dates of which the LP had been pushed back. July 2016 was written at the bottom of the list however the exact date was blocked out. July has passed and no album was seen in record stores.
In March, Ocean’s Boys Don’t Cry album had leaked online. However, the audio in SoundClouds have been taken down immediately. Now that Boys Don’t Cry is finally coming, you could verify if the tracklist of the album that was also earlier leaked is true.
