His 45-minute visual album Endless was released through Apple Music at midnight on Friday and was then linked from the album's site. Ocean updated his live stream on Thursday (18Aug16) with footage of him building a staircase in the same warehouse, which are the basis for the visuals seen in Endless. There's a visual album, pop-up stores and the final product, Blonde. The publication additionally confirmed that he has made a decision to forgo the name Boys Don't Cry for the new album in favor of another title. The magazine features photographs taken by Ocean, an interview with his mother, horoscopes and the lyrics of a rap called The MacDonalds Man written by Kanye West. "He called me to come out and do some stuff for his album, Boys Don't Cry, that's coming out".

After fits and starts, rumors and innuendo, Frank Ocean finally released his sophomore album on Saturday night.

Blonde - which is the follow-up to Ocean's Grammy-winning 2012 debut LP, Channel Orange - features an array of collaborators, including André 3000, James Blake, Jamie xx, Kendrick Lamar and Beyoncé, who Ocean previously collaborated with on her 2013 song "Superpower".
