With regards to the content, Boys Don?t Cry is expected to be launched with a major video and a printed publication that has a title similar to the album itself and will be distributed through Apple Stores as well.
In addition, the album?s launch is said to be live on Ocean?s official website, Boysdontcry.co, as well as on Apple Music.
