YES! Frank Ocean is finally giving fans what they want — his new album! The singer’s website teased on July 2 that the highly-anticipated album, ‘Boys Don’t Cry,’ will be coming out very, very soon!
Our dreams are about to come true! After years of waiting, Frank Ocean’s album is about to be released. The singer, 28, dropped a big cryptic hint about the release date of Boys Don’t Cry, and it looks like we won’t have to wait too much longer for his new music! Get the details now!
Early on July 2, Frank’s Boys Don’t Cry website was updated with a telling new graphic. The photo is a library due-date slip, listing a set of dates from July 2015 to now. The latest date is smudged out, but it does reveal a July 2016 release date. Or does it? Another date stamp — for Nov. 13, 2016 — leaves us with many questions. Will the album come out in July or November?
Frank had originally said Boys Don’t Cry would be released in July 2015, but that never happened. Fans were furious when the album wasn’t released. They have been begging for the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed album Channel Orange, which was released in 2012, for years.
After Frank teased his new album, fans were understandably excited once again.

But some fans still don’t want to get their hopes up.
As for that Frank Ocean album? I'll believe it when I see it.

I'm not going to get too excited about this Frank Ocean album announcement b/c we've been led astray before.

The singer has kept very quiet over the years, and many fans have wondered what’s going on with him. Photos of the singer surfaced in late June 2016 wearing scrubs, and fans believed that he was maybe quitting music for med school!
But it looks like Frank is sticking with music. However, we’re going to be crying if he doesn’t release Boys Don’t Cry soon!
HollywoodLifers, are you excited for Frank’s new album? Do you think it will be the best album of the year? Let us know!
