Frank Ocean stirred up some curiosity this week when he posted a message to Tumblr hinting at the existence of a completed album that hasn’t been released.
The message, which was shared on Monday (November 27), mentioned a fifth album Ocean finished before turning 30, making good on a tweet from more than five years ago.
Before his 30th birthday this past October, the enigmatic singer had released Nostalgia: Ultra, Channel Orange, Blonde and Endless.
“Well I️ made the album before 30. I just ain’t put that bitch out!” Ocean wrote in the post. He added that the quote was from “an interview I haven’t given.”
So far, the vague message was all the singer shared in regards to the mystery album.
Fans mostly reacted with excitement, but some were still exhausted from Ocean’s last cryptic album rollout.
