Frank Ocean collaborator Malay warned fans last week that he would not be giving updates on Ocean's eagerly awaited second album, Boys Don't Cry, during an upcoming AMA Reddit. Well, the Reddit happened on Monday night and, believe it or don't, the Channel Orange co-producer (born James Ho) eventually was pushed to say something, anything about the mysterious project in the chat on an Ocean-related page.
As reported by Fader, the crack in his facade came after one participant explained fans' frustration at the roll-out. "I respect that you don’t want us to ask about BDC and when it’s going to come out. So in the interest of asking a question that acknowledges those boundaries while still addressing the elephant in the room, I’d like to know what you think about how fans have interacted with the rollout to this point," the fan wrote. "I think the major pain point for fans has been the fact that Frank has led us to believe there’s something coming, and then he hasn’t communicated with us at all."
