Nearly two weeks after the New York Times-reported August 5th drop of Frank Ocean‘s Boys Don’t Cry, and we’re still holding our breath for the most anticipated project of the decade. Release anxiety has reached such a boiling fever pitch that fans have been revisiting Channel Orange in multitudes, prompting the album’s return to the ranks of the Billboard 200, with some even scouring their local warehouses to find the space in which Frank’s “livestream” event was filmed. It was, in fact, found in Brooklyn and reportedly costs an unfathomable $3,200 per day to rent (that’s NYC real estate for ya.)
Now with only a few loose sightings in his mother’s Instagram musings to go by, the world is really starting to lose its shit over the rick-roll event of the century. But fear not, Frank faithfuls, the man is alive and well and apparently spending his time street racing in LA with former Odd Future cohort, Tyler The Creator, according to some new footage making rounds on the web this morning. The main takeaway here: Frank Ocean still has a pulse. Watch the clips below and hope with us all that his trunk was full of Boys Don’t Cry pressings and the finishline was an Apple store. Keep that ear to the ground, Boys Don’t Cry could still arrive at damn-near any moment. Or not.
