Frank Ocean Snapchat Filters Help You Wait for ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ Album
Welp. It's Aug. 5, and the world still doesn't have a new Frank Ocean album. That's why Snapchat has you covered: the social media platform just released custom filters to help fans wait patiently for Boys Don't Cry.
Ocean's highly anticipated (that's an understatement) sophomore album is still nowhere to be found, so Snapchat dropped two filters for fans to express themselves in their time of sorrow. The first filter features the caption "Waiting for Frank Ocean's new music like..." with a picture of a skeleton, while the second filter features a computer text application window with the words "DEAR FRANK OCEAN..."
Luckily, there are other ways you can pass the time waiting for Boys Don't Cry. A good samaritan compiled all of Frank's music onto one Wakalet account, along with interviews, music videos and more. The website even contains his unreleased tracks and records he wrote for other artists.
Another way you can patiently await the new body of work is by listening to all the music from the Long Beach, Calif.'s live stream from a few days ago. The instrumentals are sounding pretty dope, especially the guitar tracks, and they could end up on the new album. But if you're not into spoilers, I'd suggest just waiting until the finished product.
For more Ocean-related entertainment before the album drops, read this hilarious letter a fan sent via Instagram. Pure gold.
Keep it locked to XXL for more news surrounding Ocean's album Boys Don't Cry. Hopefully, this project doesn't turn into the new Detox.
