Since the release of his 2012 highly acclaimed debut album, Channel Orange, Frank Ocean has managed to stay almost completely off the radar. Over the past four years though, fans have remained hopeful that a new project or single would eventually surface. And though countless rumors have emerged of a secret album that the artist has under wraps, we have yet to see any proof. And now this.
A new image of the Grammy Award–winning singer is circulating the internet and provoking various responses from fans.
Here's what the photo could mean: Frank is starting a new career in the medical field.
And here's how some fans are overreacting: But probably prematurely.
I feel like frank ocean made me fall in love and left me at the alter. That album changed my life. I need another one and he just dipped.— TIANA (@itsTiana) June 28, 2016
But here's where the photo likely originated from: It's just an on-set shot from an old music video.
So maybe there is still hope that the musical genius hasn't completely abandoned his craft. Regardless of whether Frank Ocean has a newfound interest in medicine or is simply still on a musical hiatus, he has certainly left an incredible impact on the music industry, as well as the progress of hip-hop culture's stance toward the LGBT community. We can’t wait to hear anything he's been working on. Literally anything, Frank. Anything.
