Kanye West Urges Radio to Support Frank Ocean

Frank Ocean’s Blonde is headed to the top of the Billboard 200 in its first week, but that’s not enough for Yeezus. Instead, Kanye West is urging all radio stations to get behind the critically-acclaimed album too.

‘Ye announced this call to action with a series of tweets on Tuesday (Aug. 23). “If anyone at radio really loves music,” he tweeted. “Come together and pick your favorite Frank Ocean song and play it at least 10 times a day.

“Every station across the globe,” he continued. “I Heart. Clear Channel local stations. Satellite. Every station. This will make the world better.

“Power to the people,” he added. “Power to the artist. Empower the artist and create a more inspired world.”

Earlier this week, Kanye also celebrated Blonde by saying he’s got the album “on repeat.”

Yeezy isn’t just a fan of Ocean’s latest work. He also contributed to Frank’s Boys Don’t Cry magazine with a poem about McDonald’s, referencing “artificial meat.” The fast food empire recently responded to Yeezy with a tweet of their own.

“We’re lovin’ the love for McDonald’s World Famous Fries and Apple Pies,” the chain said in a statement. “Like the beef in our burgers our love for our fans’ creativity is 100% real.”
