It has been four long years since Ocean released his first album Channel Orange but now Frank Ocean’s new album is finally here. Fans have been going crazy on social media wondering when the singer or if the singer was ever going to drop his album. After teasing fans with several release dates, Frank had decided to title the LP Blonde when previously it was called Boys Don’t Cry. On Thursday, Ocean released a 45- minute visual album titled Endless through Apple Music. There are no features on the Blonde album, but I’m pretty sure that Ocean’s fans rather hear just his voice after waiting four years for him to release a new album for them to enjoy. Blonde has 17 tracks with songs such as “Godspeed,” “Close To You,” and “Facebook Story.” The album contributors list include some heavy hitter names including Jazmine Sullivan, Kendrick Lamar, Beatles, Andre 3000, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, David Bowie, Kanye West, Pharrell, and much more.
- Pink + White
