Listen to Every Song Frank Ocean Played During BlondedRadio's 'Midterms Pt. 1' Episode
Frank Ocean's blondedRADIO returned for its eighth episode Tuesday morning (Nov. 6). The Beats 1 Radio show started at 9 a.m. ET and ran for an hour over on Apple Music. In honor of Election Day, the special-edition episode was billed as "blonded Midterms Pt. 1," which saw Vegyn and Roof Access holding down hosting duties.
Unfortunately, Ocean didn't share any new music but meticulously curated a playlist for fans' listening pleasure, with songs from Jadakiss, Gil Scott-Heron, Valee, Rico Nasty, Playboi Carti, Cam'ron, The Honeydrippers, Beyoncé and JAY-Z, plus Frank himself.
The Blonde artist touched on politics during the hour-long episode, denouncing several voter-suppression tactics, including gerrymandering. Ocean even admitted that he'd be just fine with having his taxes raised for the good of the people. "I already get taxed quite a bit, and I wouldn’t sweat it if I got taxed more," he said.
To help entice fans to hit the polls, the 31-year-old has launched pop-up shops in several battleground states giving out free merchandise to any person who can prove that they participated in Tuesday's (Nov. 6) election. Just make sure not to take your selfie in the voting booth, since it's illegal in several states.
Shops are currently open in Houston, Miami, Dallas and Atlanta. These specific locations were chosen with certain candidates in mind, as the flyer endorses Florida candidate Andrew Gillum, Georgia's Stacy Abrams and Beto O'Rourke, who is running for U.S. Senate in Texas.
