Obama was still in his first term the last time Frank Ocean delivered an album. So it makes sense that his fans are growing a wee bit impatient (to say the least). Last month, he teased us with a cryptic library card that seemed to suggest that Boys Don’t Cry would drop before the end of the month.

Hang in there, y’all!
