After Another Frank Ocean Album Fakeout, The Internet Is Done

August 1, 2016

Frank Ocean’s first studio album, "Channel Orange," came out in 2012. Four years and MANY false release dates later, and his fans are a smidge annoyed waiting for the next album, "Boys Don’t Cry."

Ocean had promised something big in July 2016, so when a new “livestream” went up on his Boys Don’t Cry website early in the morning Aug. 1, everyone got really excited.

Then they got confused.

Then they found out it was just a looped video for an art project by Francis Soriano.

And that’s when things got interesting on Twitter.

Some people got mad.

Some just went with it.

And many used this as a teachable moment: Don’t trust people when they tell you the Frank Ocean album is about to drop.
