Ocean was rumoured to release his highly anticipated album, “Boys Don’t Cry,” after leaving fans hanging for four years after the successful release of “Orange.”

“Boys Don’t Cry” was to be released on Apple on Friday at midnight.

The rumours started after the music-sponsored live stream appeared on Ocean’s website, the internet went into a frenzy.


But as fans waited, and the clock struck 12, nothing came.

The live broadcast has been active for five days now, and still no album.

Fans are clearly annoyed af.

But wait, is Frank Ocean killing our dreams on purpose?

The hold up of the album has caused Ocean’s numbers to rise on every single medium.

On Monday, according to Next Big Sound, his Pandora, Youtube and Vevo video hits doubled, without releasing any new content.

Ocean’s Wikipedia page views are up more than 300% this week, and the number of people talking about him on Facebook has tripled, according to Forbes.

*Note: Frank Ocean has no verified Twitter or Instagram accounts.*

And finally, on Thursday, he was a top trending Google search, at more than half a million searches.

So fans are devastated, but they aren’t angry at Ocean.

Clearly they are drowning their sorrows in his brilliant music, so I am sure they are still loyal to him.


We will just have to be big boys, hold back our tears, and wait it out my friends.
