|R&B Soul Singer Tyrese Claims Mainstream Radio Is Racist !!!!!!!|
If you havent noticed any urban radio station at any given time of the day, you’ll probably hear Tyrese’s song “Shame,” from his new album Black Rose, which is currently the No. 1 R&B song on the charts.

R&B chart right now, but hit
music stations still aren't playing his tracks.
And 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 Reports.
"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."
The passionate tune currently tops Billboard's Adult R&B chart, but top-flight radio personalities
Ryan Seacrest (of KIIS FM in Los Angeles) and Elvis Duran (of Z100 in New York) aren't playing it, even though Gibson said he has reached out to them.
"At this point, I believe that if Sam Smith, Robin Thicke or Justin Timberlake had been singing "Shame," it'd be played on all formats of radio around the world," he told Reports.
"And as far as I'm concerned, that's not right."
To be fair, African American R&B singer The Weeknd has been all over the airwaves the past few
His latest hit “Can’t Feel My Face” currently ranks third on KIIS FM’s songs of the week, and it’s eighth on Z100’s list.
The Weeknd, who also had a mainstream staple in “Earned It” earlier this year, is becoming increasingly popular due to his ability to combine R&B tunes with retro-pop and orchestral elements. “Shame,” on the other hand, has a more traditional R&B sound.
On Tuesday, "Black Rose" was number three on the Billboard 200, after Taylor Swift's "1989" and Future's "DS2."
