After several years of waiting, it seems like fans are finally going to hear Frank Ocean?s Boys Don?t Cry as reports suggest it is going to be released later this week.
Since his 2012 album Channel Orange, which was nominated for 6 Grammys and won Best Urban Contemporary Album, supporters of the singer-songwriter have been anticipating his next project. However, after teasing them with several release dates, the album did not hit the market.
Now, in a recent report by the New York Time, Ocean?s next album is going to be available Friday, August 5, as revealed by a source that has knowledge about the release plans. If this is going to be precise, it would be months earlier than what was previously teased November 13 release date.
Furthermore, if the Frank Ocean album would really hit the market on Friday, reports noted that it would be exclusive on Apple Music for about two weeks. The project is going to be the latest high-profile album that secured an exclusive deal with the streaming service following the albums of Drake, Future, Chance the Rapper, and the band The 1975.
Speaking of the album itself, it is said to be released with a major video and a printed publication that has a title similar to the project, Boys Don?t Cry, and will distributed as well on Apple Stores. Also, some collaborators that are expected to be in the album are Rodney ?Darkchild? Jerkins, Happy Perez, Charlie Gambetta, and Kevin Ristro.
Previously, there were reports claiming that Nas also collaborated with Ocean on ?No Such Thing as White Jesus.? However, the track?s producer, Hit Boy, later revealed that it can never be heard because it was lost along with a hard drive.
