Beyoncé has fans waiting eagerly as rumors of a new album abound, especially following the Super Bowl announcement of her Formation World Tour and her performance of her surprise single "Formation." There's an unlikely but still possible chance that the similarly mysterious Frank Ocean could be featured on the hush-hush album. After all, the two teamed up for Beyoncé's 2013 ballad "Superpower," which was itself part of a surprise digital album.

Beloved R&B artist Frank Ocean was set to release his next album in July 2015 after an announcement on Tumblr. It's 2016 now, and not only has the album yet to surface, but Ocean's social media presence seems to have faded away.

Beyoncé first heard Ocean's music from her husband Jay Z, she told ComplexMTV reported in 2011. "I noticed his tone, his arrangements, and his storytelling," she told Complex. "I immediately reached out to him — literally the next morning. I asked him to fly to New York and work on my record."
