It’s finally here. After four years of cryptic messages and repeated delays, R&B singer-songwriter Frank Ocean will release his second studio album, Boys Don’t Cry, this Friday, The New York Times reported on Monday. According to the newspaper’s sources, the album will be released exclusively through Apple Music and will remain exclusive to the platform for two weeks before seeing a wider distribution.
