Throwback Thursdays presents: Frank Ocean – Thinkin’ ’bout You
Hey. How’s it going? So…Friday tomorrow. Word is you’re finally dropping “Boys Don’t Cry” at some point tomorrow. You’ve been teasing us with this for as long as I can remember, and to be honest, I think I, as well as a few others, have developed some trust issues. So please, no more, huh..?
Adele’s “25“. Beyoncé’s “Lemonade“. Kanye’s “The Life Of Pablo“. Just a few examples of artists whose albums had so much hype built around them, that when they finally dropped, it was worth the wait. “Boys Don’t Cry” has just as much hype, if not more. I mean, for James Blake to say it’s better than “channel ORANGE“?! That’s a HUGE statement! Even Asele herself said, “I’m just fucking waiting for Frank fucking Ocean to come out with his album. It’s taking so fucking long.” ADELE said that! The woman who makes an album, then disappears without a word, leaving the World hungry for more music! I digress. With all the hype, and no product, it’s beginning to look like your album will fall under the same category as “Detox“; nothing more than a myth. An audible masterpiece that the World will never hear. I hope that’s not the case, but hey, we’ll see tomorrow, right?
Hope you’re keeping well otherwise. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
Thinkin’ ’bout you (pun intended),
PS Here’s the lead single off “channel ORANGE“, released back in April 2012. But you knew that already.
