It looks like Frank Ocean’s tumblr has been hacked, with new posts requesting payment in return for unreleased songs.

The post reads: “SpirDark . 2019 Comeback (soon). Nobody is safe. Email me if you’re interested in buying unreleased Frank songs. spirdark@protonmail.com”

There’s also a link to an Instagram picture, with the caption: ‘If this post gets 25,000 likes I will release the Frank Ocean song featuring andre, kendrick and sza (it’s a legit song)’

Google throws up a Reddit thread where someone has suggested ‘spirdark’ after one user asked: “anyone know some legitimate hackers who can get unreleased?”

Earlier today, Frank Ocean had appeared to tease new music dropping via a post on the tumblr, which read ‘March 1st… SOLANA + KL + ANDRE… HERE FOR THE BEANS’, suggesting involvement from SZA, Kendrick Lamar, and André 3000.

In January, Frank shared a part of him covering SZA track ‘The Weekend’, and the new music may be related to that.
