A day after dropping his “visual album” Endless, Frank Ocean gave his fans clamoring for more music another gift: The music video for his new single, “Nikes," released on Apple Music

After much anticipation and gnashing of teeth from his fans, Frank Ocean has finally released Blonde, his follow-up album to his 2012 album Channel Orange.

Ocean dropped the album on Saturday (Aug. 20), following the release of his first music video “Nikes” – a wild, glittery naked collection of images – and a “visual album” called Endless, which Ocean dropped last Thursday (Aug. 18).

Blonde numerous credits include Beyoncé, David Bowie, Kanye West, Jamie xx, Kendrick Lamar, The Beatles.

The singer began teasing his second album, which he then called Boys Don’t Cry, in April 2015. Then, about two weeks ago, he launched a mysterious black-and-white livestream on his website, which basically showed an mostly empty warehouse.

Blonde is now streaming in its entirety on Apple Music and available for purchase on iTunes. Read a review of it at Rolling Stone.
