In a series of tweets on Tuesday (Aug. 23), West advocated for Ocean's new album Blonde to get support from radio. He said, "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."

West also pointed out that he and Drake -- who suffer from no lack of radio play -- both listen to Ocean, so why shouldn't radio listeners?
