The fans of the American singer, songwriter and rapper Frank Ocean were happy to hear in the beginning of the year about the upcoming album which will be released in 2016. ”Boys Don’t Cry” is the title of the album, however, the R & B singer from New Orleans, Louisiana, USA did not confirm any release date.
Ocean had talked about the possibility of the release of this album in 2015, and ever since the fans have been waiting. His debut studio album ”Channel Orange” created a lot of waves in the music scenes and his talent was appreciated by the fans. “Thinkin Bout You”, “Pyramids” and “Sweet Life” the singles from this album received critical acclaim from the music fraternity.
Ocean got a lot of media attention when he talked about his bisexuality. ”The news that Frank Ocean had apparently outed himself as bisexual received a variety of reactions, but perhaps the most curious was the suggestion he was indulging in a kind of publicity stunt. In fairness, you can see why people thought that. His announcement arrived just before his major label debut album was due and overnight it turned Ocean into the most-discussed R&B artist in the world” was reported by The guardian.
Time did a comprehensive coverage on the life and work of this upcoming artist. ”He’s a member of one of hip-hop’s hottest and most controversial collectives Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, also known as OFWGKTA or, more succinctly, Odd Future” said the article.
