Frank Ocean has pulled so many false alarms, he parodied it last month on his website by posting a library card stamped with a slew of rumored release dates that have come and gone. Well we can probably add Friday, August 5, to the collection.
So far, Boys Don’t Cry hasn’t made its way online or on physical shelves yet and time’s a-ticking. It also has the internet up-in-arms, as they’re already calling today a waste.
“Good morning to everyone except Frank Ocean,” one Twitter user tweeted. Frank Ocean’s anticipated release is so tiresome that Snapchat introduced a filter just for the occasion. You can either choose from the “Waiting for Frank Ocean's new music like…” one where you’re a skeleton or one that’s a TextEdit notepad reading “Dear Frank Ocean…” Either is super accurate.
Rumors that Frank Ocean would release his Boys Don’t Cry album this week came when a New York Times report pegged Friday as the official release date for the project. The singer had also changed up the top of his website to include a looping video of a person sawing wood.
We’re chalking up today as a lost cause, but if Frank does drop his sophomore album, you know we’ll have full coverage of it. Check out social media’s reaction to waiting for Frank Ocean to drop below.
