In an unexpected move for the typically reclusive artist, Frank Ocean recently opened up his private Instagram and embraced his fandom. Cue us, immediately liking all 305 posts on the account, @blonded.
Though, shirtless mirror selfies and photos of his mom aren’t the only reason to follow @blonded. It appears Ocean’s using his newfound social media presence to tease some highly-anticipated music after his critically-acclaimed album Blonde, and the eight year gap between that and the landmark Channel Orange.
Today in his Instagram stories — among them, a video of Ocean wearing a face mask and practicing French — Ocean posted a story featuring an 8-second clip of himself with some tornado emojis, playing what appears to be new music. “I’ve got visions for my life,” he sings in the track.

Back in September, Ocean filed a cease and desist to be taken off of Travis Scott’s “Carousel” from his album, Astroworld. Although it was rumored to be over the allegedly transphobic removal of Amanda Lepore from his album cover, he and Ocean apparently resolved the issue on their own.
