Frank Ocean New Album: No Update On ‘Boys Don’t Cry,’ Fans Are Losing Patience

Frank Ocean is trending on Twitter yet again for not releasing his highly anticipated album Boys Don’t Cry and many of his fans are losing it.

The talented singer has not released an album since he dropped Channel Orange four years ago. Fans still play his timeless hits “Thinkin Bout You,” “Pyramids” and “Sweet Life.”

Frank Ocean fans were expecting Boys Don’t Cry to be released on July 31 this year. Now it’s August 1, Frank Ocean fans are responding on Twitter demanding music.


Some good news is that Frank Ocean is live streaming on his website. However, this could just be another teaser.

It seems as though the album his done. Frank Ocean has a picture on his website showing two versions of the album have been made. See it here.

Some Frank Ocean supporters have had hilarious responses to the delay of his album. TheShadeRoom captured one of the more funny letters aimed at Frank.

Here is what the letter says.

“Fu** you Frank (Nah, I didn’t mean that I love you fam),” the author writes. “Why you taking so long with this fu**ing album? (It’s really ok, take all the time you need. I love you bro). Word to my moms I aint buying nuffin. I will illegal download every track on that album. (idk why I’m playing mysself I’ll buy like four copies. I love you cuz). Listen, it deadass the end of July. No one has ever played me for this long. You played all of us Frank. Don’t worry we are still gonna be your fans ’til the world ends. I luv you man). In all honestly…fu** you. (I love you fam).

The letter is signed “Everyone in Earth.”


The viral post has been shared thousands of times on social media.

Frank Ocean is featured on Kanye West’s new album The Life of Pablo where he was originally on “Wolves” before Kanye remade the song. He then made Frank’s segment its own song named “Frank’s Track.”

Kanye was aware he had a Frank Ocean exclusive and knew better than to remove it from his album.

The last we heard from the singer was his response to the Orlando shooting where he wrote an emotional letter on his Tumblr blog.

“I daydream on the idea that maybe all this barbarism and all these transgressions against ourselves is an equal and opposite reaction to something better happening in this world, some great swelling wave of openness and wakefulness out here. Reality by comparison looks grey, as in neither black nor white but also bleak. We are all God’s children, I heard. I left my siblings out of it and spoke with my maker directly and I think he sounds a lot like myself. If I being myself were more awesome at being detached from my own story in a way I being myself never could be.”

Frank Ocean’s last album was certified Gold and many more copies worldwide. “Channel Orange” was also praised by critics. From what we know about Boys Don’t Cry so far is that producers Hit-Boy, Rodney Jerkins and Danger Mouse are expected to be featured on the album.
