In typical Frank Ocean fashion, the famed R&B crooner once again bypassed today’s more popular forms of social media and instead conveyed a cryptic message on his Tumblr page. Leaving fans left to decipher the true meaning behind the mysterious words, Ocean posted an image of a young lad sporting a hat with a tagline that reads, “If you liked 2017, you’ll love…2018,” finished off with the caption “new 18-99.”

Given the artist’s volatile nature, the vague post can signify one of many things. However, only recently revealing “Well! I made the album before 30. I just ain’t put that b*tch out!’ – quotes from an interview I haven’t given haha” on his Tumblr page, one can easily be led to believe a new album is soon on the way. Although, with no confirmation hitting the airwaves, only time will tell what Frank Ocean has in store.
