When Meshell Ndegeocello released Plantation Lullabies in 1993, she was a sexy bald-headed bassist that made even the most straight and narrow a little bi-curious. Salacious and sensual, her neo-soul music experimented with slam poetry, free jazz and hip-hop, culminating in the saucy single “If That’s Your Boyfriend (He Wasn’t Last Night).” This year, she released Weather, her 10th solo album, a record flushed with quiet intimacy and killer basslines that prove Meshell isn’t going anywhere. Tonight at Hiro Ballroom, watch as she converts even the non-conformists.
