Unsurprisingly, Frank Ocean's highly anticipated album has still not been released. While Ocean fans have been (not so) patiently waiting for his new Boys Don’t Cry album, the release date has been continuously delayed. Aggravated fans have taken to social media to express their confusion and frustration about Ocean's mysterious, very prolonged hold on his newest masterpiece.

That being said, the hype that Ocean's silence has created is only going to give the album more exposure.

In Fact, the Californian’s 2012 album Channel Orange has re-emerged onto the Billboard 200 album chart. According to Business Insider, the sales on the four-year-old album have increased 35%. Coincidence? We think not.
