The crowd was expecting him to announce a new album, but he cleared all the rumors. “I wanna talk about why we’re here today,” he said. “It’s not because of a new album. Not that there’s not a new album, but it’s not right now.” The performance was delayed by an hour. However, Frank performed songs like "Chanel," "Solo" and "Ferrari," according to the Independent.
