Tyrese has the #1 R&B song in the country but is furious that mainstream radio stations won’t play his hit track.
The 36-year-old singer’s new album, Black Rose, is number one on Billboard’s R&B chart right now, but white music stations still aren’t playing his songs, including his new single “Shame.”
According to Gibson, that’s because pop stations only play R&B when it’s performed by white artists.
“When I think about Sam Smith, Robin Thicke, Justin Timberlake – when they’re singing R&B soul, their songs are being played on all formats of radio, including urban radio,” Gisbon told TMZ in a video published Tuesday. “We don’t say because they white they should only be played on the white stations. If I’m number one … my song deserves to be heard by the world.”
