Finally, new Frank Ocean music may be closer than we think! On Saturday, the 28-year-old singer hinted that his new project may be released this month. The singer posted a library card with dates crossed off. Based on what wasn’t scratched off, it appears that he’s noting that his new album, Boys Don’t Cry, may be released sometime this month.
Ocean embarked on his musical career as a ghostwriter for several prominent artists, including John Legend, Justin Bieber and Brandy. In 2010, he became a member of Odd Future. Ocean subsequently released his breakout mixtape, Nostalgia, Ultra, to critical acclaim in 2011. The singles, “Novacane” and “Swim Good”, both achieved chart success. In 2012, Ocean finished in second place in BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll. His debut studio album, Channel Orange, was released in July 2012 to critical acclaim and was promoted with three charting singles: “Thinkin Bout You”, “Pyramids” and “Sweet Life”. Ocean’s music has been characterized by music writers as idiosyncratic in style.
