Frank Ocean's blonded Radio is going live for the second time today. The Beats 1 show aired early on Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. EST, hosted by Ocean and electronic musician Vegyn. The pair spent their time on air dishing out political commentary, disputing a number of political conspiracies like Pizzagate, and urging listeners to exercise their right to vote.
Ocean also announced via Tumblr that he would be providing free merch to fans who showed proof that they voted in Atlanta, Houston, Miami, and Dallas. The singer said that he selected those cities to show support for Beto O'Rourke, Andrew Gillum, and Stacey Abrams, who are running for seats in Texas, Florida, and Georgia respectively.

Ocean and Vegyn kicked the show off with a brief clip of a woman speaking on the importance of voting. The two then got into some music, playing Noname's "Window," Alfa Mist's "Resolve," and Paul Institute artist Hira's "Red Light Drive." The hosts continued playing voiceovers of different artists including JPEGMAFIA, giving their thoughts on why voting is crucial.
