Fans Respond TO Altered Photo OF Frank Ocean’s New Look

This photoshopped photo of Frank Ocean with long hair went viral earlier this week, eliciting numerous reactions on Twitter as well as a dispute over whether the look is even real. The hype started when a Frank Ocean fan account posted the image, alleging that the musician shared it with his “close friends” on Instagram.

“This man only comes back when he need a reup on money .. then he disappears again for 4-5 year.. rinse & repeat,” one fan wrote in response to the picture. Another added: “Frank Lion boutta drop a Reggae album,” one fan wrote, playing on Snoop Dogg’s reggae alias Snoop Lion,” making reference to Snoop Dogg’s R&B alias Snoop Lion. Others immediately doubted whether the picture is real: “No way y’all actually believing this.”

Frank Ocean’s 2021 Hairstyle

The rumored new hairstyle for Ocean comes as fans anticipate new music from the elusive singer. On a poster shared with one of his recent merch drops, Ocean explained that for the last several years he’s been interested in releasing singles as opposed to albums. That stance has since changed. Presenting the case of a fictitious “recording artist,” Ocean wrote: “The Recording Artist attempts to explain to the major music label the singles distribution model as opposed to the long-form album model. The Recording Artist believes the latter to be outdated, and that releasing singles is more suited to modern consumption habits where people curate their own playlists which are then shared within private circles. The meeting does not appear to be productive.” Ocean concludes by suggesting he “has since changed his mind about the singles model.” He adds that he’s once “again interested in more durational bodies of work.”

In the nearly seven years since the release of Blonde, Ocean has only released singles. These include “DHL,” “In My Room,” “Dear April” and “Cayendo.” Check out fans’ reactions to his alleged new look below.
