Tyrese is single-handedly fighting to put real and soulful R&B music back on the radio.
The Black Rose singer recently protested outside the building of iHeart Radio in Los Angeles to shed light on the fact that his music doesn't get enough spins on the radio-waves. As a result, he was given a citation by police officers.
"All I wanna do is have my #1 song #Billboard #Shame thats 2 weeks in a row on Billboard to be HEARD!!!! 8 police cars and 4 motorcycle cars later - R&B must be a REAL THREAT - I fear no man but GOD and my position won't change - thank you to the 80+ multi ethnic fans for showing up - there's power in numbers - #RnBSOULDIERS I FREAKIN LOVE YOU!!!!! #BlackRoseMission I sung from my HEART in front of the iHEART building LA!!!" he posted on Instagram.
During a recent sit down with The Breakfast Club, the multi-award winner also touched on the lack of radio play for his album or even true R&B in general.
