- Talks about her album and how it deepens her relationship with the electronic music world, but it’s fully grounded in R&B’s brave emotional honesty.
- “There was a departure where mainstream black shit got embraced by white indie bros and almost usurped,” Kelela says. “But what happened to black people’s contributions in that blurriness? I’m a black girl who has dreads and is making R&B music, which is just not a sensational and fashionable music except for when it’s sung by white people.”
