What is Frank Ocean playing at? Having promised a new album due in July 2015, the musician promptly went quiet.
And now, with Boys Don't Cry looking like it was FINALLY due to drop, he is keeping fans on their feet with a mysterious live-stream.

Fans were hoping he would stick to his revised July 2016 release date and there was a surge of hope when the live-stream appeared on his website at the last minute. However, that hope has been short-lived.
So far... NO ALBUM. After two hours of white noise in an empty studio.

Watching the live stream made some people pretty antsy.

Which Pokemon is Frank, seeing as he is so hard to track down...?
Frank Ocean is the mewtwo of the real world.

Or perhaps he's not a Pokemon after all. Perhaps he's Wally.

Or... a deadbeat dad?
Frank Ocean is like an absentee father who went out for a pack of cigarettes 4 years ago and still hasn't come home

Frank Ocean is the deadbeat dad of music. We're sitting in the porch with our bags packed. He ain't coming.

We all know someone just like Frank Ocean.
Frank Ocean is the type of person saying he's around the corner but he hasn't pulled out the driveway yet

Others cursed themselves for ever trusting him.
Frank Ocean makes me feel like that dumb girlfriend who keeps going back to her boyfriend after he cheats I still have so much hope :(

Everyone who believed that Frank Ocean was going to drop the album has also believed "I promise it'll be different this time babe"

Every trust issue I've had since last July begins and ends with Frank Ocean.
