It was late in the night when whispers of Frank Ocean dropping his album began to circulate social media. Fans, who once cursed the singer for taking too long to release follow-up music to the critically acclaimed channel ORANGE, rejoiced when they logged onto his website to find the 18-track visual album, Endless, streaming for all to see.
The visuals opened with Frank building a staircase while new music played in the background. Endless features appearances by Jonny Greenwood, James Blake, Jazmine Sullivan, and British R&B vocalist Sampha, and is full of live instrumentation played by the London Contemporary Orchestra.
With emotions running high, the internet logged onto Twitter for one big group hug while they wept.
According to Rolling Stone, Apple is set to release a “proper” Frank Ocean project, previously titled Boys Don’t Cry, this weekend. But for now, check out one of their playlists inspired by the “Thinkin Bout You” crooner.

30. If there’s ever been a standout creative and executive that I’ve patterned my trajectory after, it’s @iamdiddy. There’s absolutely nothing about the maestro, mogul and, sometimes, magician that’s not inspiring. Watching him lead his label through the soundtrack of my life last night was a moment one several levels. I experienced it at the right time in the right place. It fully birthed the new beast I’ve been incubating. It was a hell of a show. Thanks @iamdiddy. 🙌🏾
