Just a couple days after exclusively launching visual album "Endless" on Apple Music, R&B singer Frank Ocean has released his sophomore album "Blonde", which used to be referred to as "Boy's Don't Cry". The album, which is his first since his debut album "Channel Orange" in 2012, will be exclusive to Apple Music for two weeks.
The 17-track album was originally set to release on August 5, but Ocean and his teamed pushed back the release once the news was out to maintain the element of surprise, according to The New York Times. The release also includes the music video for Ocean's single, "Nikes."
A companion print magazine called "Boys Don't Cry" was reportedly going to be available at Apple retail stores. However, Ocean has only announced that four pop-up stores in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and London would carry the magazine.
"Endless" and "Blonde" are just two of the high-profile exclusives that Apple has secured for its music streaming service. Other content includes Drake's "Views" and Taylor Swift's "1989 World Tour LIVE,"
"Blonde" can be streamed on Apple Music now. [Direct Link]
