After the release of his Channel Orange album, singer-songwriter, Frank Ocean has had the world on their toes to when he will be releasing a new project. Well now, rumor has it, the artist who let the world of his sexuality is expected to surprise everyone with the release of his ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ album this Friday and will be released exclusively on Apple Music.
According to NYT:
Mr. Ocean, the innovative and enigmatic R&B singer, is set to release his next album, “Boys Don’t Cry,” on Friday through an exclusive deal with Apple Music, according to a person with knowledge of the release plans. The release is also expected to include a major video and a printed publication called “Boys Don’t Cry” that will be distributed at Apple stores.
Mr. Ocean’s album is expected to remain exclusive to Apple for only two weeks before becoming more widely available, according to that person, who was not authorized to discuss the release plans and therefore spoke on condition of anonymity. But it is another coup for Apple, which has struck a series of deals with artists including Drake, Future, Chance the Rapper and the band The 1975, that have each given the company’s streaming service an early lock on a hot new record.
For almost 2 years, Frank Ocean has teased his fans and music lovers with songs such as “HERO” featuring Diplo, Mick Jones + Paul Simonon, plus delivering a redition of Aaliyah’s “At Your Best (You Are Love)” but this definitely wasn’t enough for Frank Ocean fans.
Lets hope this true!
