Frank Ocean Teases New Music In 2018 With Cryptic Message

On January 3, Frank Ocean took to his trusty Tumblr to deliver another cryptic message to us mere mortals. The particularly mysterious teaser sees a photo of a young man wearing a yellow cap inscribed with the words "IF YOU LIKED 2017, YOU'LL LOVE...2018".

As if that wasn't frustrating enough, the R&B prodigy also added the puzzling caption "18-99" to the post. This latest announcement from planet Frank Ocean comes just a short while after he teased us with hints that he was sitting on an already-completed album.

"I made the album before 30. I just ain't put that bitch out!", he wrote in capital letters via Tumblr, elusively adding: "Quotes from an interview I haven't given."

While we're definitely excited to hear that the Californian has something up his sleeve, we're also not that surprised. It's also worth remembering that he decided to release a stream of singles in 2017 ("Chanel", "Biking", "Provider", "Lens" and an appearance on Calvin Harris's "Slide"), rather than unveil a full album. 

Either way, we're keen to get our ears around anything Frank Ocean has to offer. Don't leave us hanging too long!
