After Frank Ocean‘s feverishly-anticipated new album failed to drop again yesterday (August 12), the elusive singer-songwriter made an unexpected appearance on social media.

Ocean’s mother Katonya Breaux shared an Instagram video last night (August 12) of her evening out in a New York City bar, in which her son makes a brief appearance. “Embarrassing my kids is my favorite pastime!!! #nyclife #dontgivemomanymorewine,” she wrote in the caption.

Fans had been speculating that Ocean’s new album could drop yesterday (August 12) because it seemed as though technical difficulties experienced by Apple may have prevented it from arriving the Friday before.

‘Boys Don’t Cry’, the long-awaited follow-up to the R&B singer’s critically-acclaimed 2012 debut ‘Channel Orange’, was reportedly due to start streaming on Apple Music on August 5. However, it never surfaced and no explanation was given at the time.

Ocean’s album was first expected to be released in July 2015 but when it failed to arrive, fans speculated that it would be released in July of this year instead. However, there has also been speculation that the album could be released in November of this year instead.

Earlier this week, the magazine expected to accompany Ocean’s album appeared to leak online.
