Frank Ocean fans busy making memes, miss ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ surprise release

LOS ANGELES — The surprise release of Frank Ocean’s highly anticipated Boys Don’t Cry fell on deaf ears late Sunday night when the R&B superstar unexpectedly released the record to relatively little reaction from the internet. Ocean, whose 2012 album channel ORANGE was met with massive critical acclaim, said he was shocked that the his newest project didn’t incite the Beyonce-caliber frenzy he was counting on, “I was kind of hoping tosurprise my fans with this new music, because they’re so patient, ya know?”

Daniel Roddins, a sophomore at Temple University in Philadelphia, and self-proclaimed Frank Ocean fan, admits that when the album was released he was “deep in shopping Harambe and Frank into an Arthur meme” and didn’t notice.
