To fans who clamor for his art, Frank Ocean has all but gone missing. Once he dropped his long-awaited sophomore album Blonde (and visual album, Endless) and played a handful of shows, it felt as if Ocean vanished again, leaving behind only a swirl of praise and think pieces from both casual and professional critics.
Blonde producer Vegyn shared the news via Twitter, a platform Ocean no longer uses.

This accomplishment bests his 2012 album, Channel Orange, which reached Gold status in 2013.
