Last week, the web was expecting the arrival of Frank Ocean‘s sophomore studio album, Boys Don’t Cry. The New York Times reported that the long-awaited project would drop on August 5. However, as of today, there’s still no sign of the LP remains and the mysterious live stream that Ocean launched earlier this month has remained largely unchanged. The hype around the project, however, has now taken an unexpected turn. After last appearing on the Billboard 200 chart on May 18, 2013, the singer’s debut album, Channel Orange has returned to the charts at No. 146, Billboard reports. The 2012 offering found its way back after selling 5,000 units (up 40 percent) and seeing a 35 percent increase in “on-demand audio and video streams” (7 million in total).
