At the beginning of July, Frank Ocean posted a library due date slip to his website with the last stamp dated July 2016. Many believed that by the end of the month Ocean would drop his long-awaited follow up to 2012’s Channel Orange, Boys Don’t Cry. While that didn’t happen, Ocean is definitely up to something.
This morning, the singer’s website was updated with a mysterious live stream of work benches in a large, empty hallway and Ocean cutting wood. We don’t know what this means, but it’s the first day of August and if there’s no album dropping today, then Frank needs to have several seats and stop playing with our emotions.
Of course, Twitter is buzzing and fans are still waiting impatiently to see what Ocean does next.
