The R&B singer Tyrese is echoing sentiments held by the rapper Azealia Banks.
Why he feels US radio is racist?
Find out below…
His latest album ‘Black Rose’ topped the Billboard 200 with no support from Top 40 radio stations and buzz generated for it by his role in the box office busting ‘Fast & Furious’ movies.
Indeed, after helping the the latest ‘Fast’ movie pull in $1 billion in seven days the entertainer seems to have expected his undeniable commercial pull to have secured the support of radio stations who threw their support behind the song ‘See You Again’, performed by the rapper Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth.
Now, as a version without Khalifa dominates Top 40 and Adult Contemporary formats worldwide Tyrese has stepped out to argue that his success as an artist is ignored by these stations because he is African-American.
Watch the clip below…
The ‘Sweet Lady‘ singer isn’t the only African-American artist to have been ignored by the aforementioned formats. For, fans of the Pop icon Beyonce will know that Top 40 radio has opted not to support any of her singles since the release of 2008’s ‘Single Ladies.’
