The wait for Frank Ocean's followup to 2012 album Channel Orange
may have got a little emotional at times, but with 276,000 album units streamed or bought in its first week of sales, we're sure Frank can forgive us for getting a little out of hand with the "WHERE'S FRANK" tweets.
The only two albums to enjoy better opening-week sales this year are Drake's Views
and Beyoncé's Lemonade.
Which is pretty good company to be in, really.
Two days prior to Blonde,
Frank released visual album Endless
, which fulfilled his contract obligations to label Def Jam Records. Blonde
was then released independently.
The album was released online and through pop-up shops
in New York City, London, Chicago and Los Angeles. Fans lucky enough to make it to the pop-up events were given a limited edition silver package which carried a physical copy of the album and an accompanying magazine, Boys Don't Cry
. The magazine featured photography, short stories, an outline for a television show, interviews and poetry - including the romantic and political 'Boyfriend'
Landlord accused of harassing gay tenants, even after they ended their tenancy.
Queer as Folk actor Robert Gant thinks its time for a reboot of the show.
