As any of our die-hard Frank Ocean fans may know, this album release has been a long time coming! The singer took a page from Beyonce’s, 36, book, and left us in the dark about most of his moves. The album comes off the heels of his visual album, Endless, which he debuted on his personal website on Aug. 19. The live stream that fans could only access for one night, showed Frank building some sort of staircase in an empty studio space as new music played in the background. SO cool!
His visual album was definitely the final bread crumb in a long trail. But before that, Frank had repeatedly teased fans with release dates. It started after the singer released a cryptic library due date card on his website which held various dates starting from fall 2015 to summer 2016. But as Dec. 2015 passed, along with February, April, and July, Frank didn’t follow through.
And the Internet erupted with a series of hilarious memes and tweets expressing their concern and disappointment that a whole year had gone by without a new album. But all good things come to those who wait. And that definitely seems to be the case now. We’re so happy Blonde is here!
Tell us HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Frank’s new album — is it a hit or miss!
