The brand new CD ‘Blond’ took place in top 3 best new albums of the year. Fans have purchased enough copies of the record to ensure it debuts at number one on the September 10 edition of the Billboard chart. The album’s sales during the first week after release finished behind just two other albums released this year – Drake’s ‘Views’ and Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’.
Along with the 17 track album came a 140 minute visual album – titled Endless – and a 360-page glossy magazine called Boys Don’t Cry, which was expected to be the title of the record itself. The magazine includes a series of photographs taken by Ocean, an interview with his mother, horoscopes and a selection of poems.
