Rapper Frank Ocean of the band Odd Future came out as gay back in July. The revelation made him one of the few men in hip-hop to be openly out with his sexuality. Now, speculation has commenced that Ocean has cast a man who may be his boyfriend in a new music video. After Ocean posted a photo of himself and male model Willy Cartier on Instagram in what appears to be a still from a movie, social media participants began wondering aloud if it was an image from a video for his newest album, "Channel Orange."

Referencing a song off the album, Instagram user yazzyyazzz wrote:
