Fans and music lovers in general have been eager for another full project from Frank Ocean since the release of his award-winning debut album Channel Orange back in 2012, but at least one of his celebrity cohorts is also anticipating the new tunes just as much as everyone else.
Talk of a new Frank Ocean album on the horizon picked up steam in 2015 when the New Orleans crooner announced a second project to be released in July. Although fans were quick to vent their disappoint on social media when July came and went without a new album, Frank offered no explanation and remained quiet amid the whispers of what may have went wrong.
2016 brought yet another hint at a new album on the way sooner than later when Frank posted an image on his website that appeared to indicate a July release date. The Internet has since been buzzing with memes and comical interpretations of Frank’s latest tease of the possibility of a new solo project and Kelly Rowland decided to get in on the fun just as July came to a close on Sunday evening.
I know I'm not the only one waiting… where's the music? 🙂😶 pic.twitter.com/nZWE52ypfn— KELENDRIA ROWLAND (@KELLYROWLAND) July 31, 2016
Frank has since posted a cryptic video on his website, so maybe Kelly’s tweet was just what he was waiting for all along.
His second studio album, rumored to be titled Boys Don’t Cry, is due out any day now. Or something like that. Maybe.
