It’s here. The wait for Frank Ocean’s new album arrived Saturday on Apple Music. The singer’s 17-track album titled “Blonde” was released one day after he released a 45-minute “visual album” on the streaming service.
Prior to releasing it, he jokingly wrote on his Tumblr:
F*CK, SORRY.. I TOOK A NAP, BUT IT’S PLAYING ON APPLE RADIO RN.
“Blonde” is Ocean’s second studio album and is his follow-up to his successful 2012 debut album “Channel Orange.” That album featured the hit song “Thinkin Bout You” and earned him two Grammy Awards, including best urban contemporary album. To celebrate the release of “Blonde,” pop up stores were created in Los Angeles, New York, London, and Chicago.
After releasing Blonde, Ocean wrote:
I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE MAKING ALL OF THIS. THANK YOU ALL. ESPECIALLY THOSE OF YOU WHO NEVER LET ME FORGET I HAD TO FINISH. WHICH IS BASICALLY EVERY ONE OF YA’LL. HAHA. LOVE YOU.
