Frank Ocean Gives Away Free Merch to Fans that Vote in the 2018 Midterm Elections
Frank Ocean is rewarding fans who can prove they participated in voting in the 2018 Midterm elections by giving out free merch.
The recording artist shared the update during a new episode of his Beats 1 radio show, BlondedRADIO. During the early morning program, he encouraged listeners to get out and vote today (Nov. 6), detailing the campaign he is helping facilitate to reward those who took action.
In addition to playing music, such as his track “U.N.I.T.Y.” off his 2016 album Endless, Ocean and his co-host, producer Vegyn, discussed a myriad of relevant topics, including voter suppression and voter ID laws.
“Let’s get the ideas out of the shadows so everything is out in the open,” he shared during the radio program. “Everyone needs to trust their common sense when it comes to things in politics. If it seems morally wrong, it’s usually wrong.”
As part of his campaign to encourage others to vote, Ocean is giving away free merch in four cities. As such, fans in Houston, Miami, Atlanta and Dallas who can prove they hit the polls will be rewarded with a limited edition white T-shirt while supplies last. The merch features the number “42%” which stands for the percentage of the U.S. population that reportedly doesn’t vote.
