Kanye West is on a mission to get his fans to listen to Frank Ocean’s new album Blonde.
In a series of tweets today (Aug 23), West implored fans to not only listen to Ocean’s music, but sent a loud message specifically to radio stations. “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,” he said. “This will make the world better.”
Not afraid to namedrop, West worked Drake into his sales pitch. “Me and Drake both listen to Frank,” he said. “Radio has to support amazing artists.”
The tweets come just days after the album’s release was overshadowed by West’s poem, The McDonald’d Man, about McDonald’s french fries. Found within the pages of Ocean’s limited edition magazine, the poem spread through the media like wildfire, eclipsing the magazine it was printed in.
