Tyrese Gibson’s new album “Black Rose” may be No. 1 right now, but that doesn’t seem to be helping him get any airplay on mainstream radio.
TMZ released a video in which the 36-year-old explains his qualms with mainstream radio stations, calling out DJs like Ryan Seacrest and Elvis Duran for not playing his latest single, “Shame.”
“I got an issue with mainstream radio right now,” he said. “I don’t create limits for myself so I don’t appreciate mainstream [radio] not playing my song.”
He then goes on to say that when artists like Justin Timberlake and Sam Smith release a song, it gets played across all channels, including “urban” stations. Read Tyrese’s open letter to radio personality and Executive Producer below.
