Frank Ocean to Release Third Album, dubbed ‘Boys Don’t Cry’
Frank Ocean is back and revealing some clues about his anticipated third album. The artist posted a photograph of himself with two versions of a magazine on his website and Tumblr blog. The caption underneath the picture says: “’I got two versions. I got twoooo versions.’ #ISSUE1 #ALBUM3 #JULY2015 #BOYSDONTCRY” From this we can deduce that he is planning to release a third album entitled Boys Don’t Cry in July. Perhaps the album will also be accompanied by two magazine covers or just feature the one which he chooses to use?
Ocean was named Rookie of the Year by GQ Magazine in 2011. In 2012, he was named Man of the Year by Vibe Magazine and mtvU. Ocean won two Grammy Awards in 2013, one for Best Urban Contemporary Album (Channel Orange) and the other for the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (No Church in the Wild with Kanye West and Jay Z). He was also given the BRIT Award for International Male Artist that same year. Following this list of prestigious accolades, we expect nothing less than the best from his third album. Although nothing has been confirmed yet, we can keep our eyes and ears open for more updates. We may be hearing some new tunes from the R&B star sooner than we think.
