#FrankOcean's album, 'Boys Don't Cry' due out Friday via #AppleMusic! [details]

The wait is OVER it seems.  Frank Ocean's oft-delayed new project, 'Boys Don't Cry' has gotten a RELEASE date--and it's dropping this WEEK!!  Get the DETAILS after the JUMP!!

Ocean is set to release his next album, “Boys Don’t Cry,” on Friday through an exclusive deal with Apple Music, according to a person with knowledge of the release plans. The release is also expected to include a major video and a printed publication called “Boys Don’t Cry” that will be distributed at Apple stores.

Mr. Ocean’s album is expected to remain exclusive to Apple for only two weeks before becoming more widely available, according to that person, who was not authorized to discuss the release plans and therefore spoke on condition of anonymity. But it is another coup for Apple, which has struck a series of deals with artists including Drake, Future, Chance the Rapper and the band The 1975, that have each given the company’s streaming service an early lock on a hot new record.

A spokesman for Mr. Ocean’s label, Def Jam, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“Boys Don’t Cry” is one of the year’s most anticipated new albums, and Mr. Ocean’s first since “Channel Orange” in 2012, which was widely hailed by critics and nominated for six Grammy Awards (it won one, for best urban contemporary album).

Let's hope FRIDAY brings forth an ALBUM... WE'LL WAIT...
