However, his unconventional set disappointed several fans, particularly after it was curtailed owing to the midnight curfew at Coachella.

As per a spokesperson for the singer of “Blonde,” Ocean withdrew from the lineup for the second weekend owing to an injury.

Onstage, he also referred to the performance as “fucking chaotic.” Nevertheless, according to Billboard, despite the criticism on social media, streams of Ocean’s music have surged since Coachella.

Ocean’s most recent music release was in 2022, when he put out two standalone singles, namely “Dear April” and “Cayendo.” He has not released an album since “Blonde” in 2016.
