Satellite need a receiver, can't seem to turn the signal fully off

from Frank Ocean – Sweet Life Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is the first suggestion that the song’s subject isn’t quite oblivious to the world outside of their sweet life.

They are trying to stay single and have fun, but constantly receive signals from others wanting a serious relationship with them, that they can’t fully ignore.

They also may be aware of the ills of the larger world and can’t quite keep them out of their thoughts.
