Frank Ocean has a big supporter in Kanye West. Just a few days ago, Kanye let the world know he had the singer’s new album on repeat via Twitter. Now, Yeezy’s upping the ante by imploring all radio stations to play more of Ocean’s music.
“If anyone at radio really loves music… Come together and pick your favorite Frank Ocean song and play it at least 10 times a day,” Kanye wrote.
“Every station across the globe. I Heart. Clear Channel local stations. Satellite. Every station. This will make the world better.”
Kanye West showing Frank Ocean some love should come as no surprise since the two have collaborated in the past. ‘Ye even penned a unique poem about McDonald’s for Ocean’s Boys Don’t Cry magazine. The Chicago native hopes his large profile will inspire some more of Ocean’s music to be played on radio stations around the country.
“Me and Drake both listen to Frank. Radio has to support amazing artists,” he wrote. “Ask yourself Why did you love music in the first place and what can you do to add to the story. Power to the people. Power to the artist. Empower the artist and create a more inspired world.”
Even without the radio play, Frank Ocean’s new album is reaching plenty of listeners. The singer’s Blond LP is expected to sell 225,000 to 250,000 equivalent album units in its first week.
