Though I share Solange’s enthusiasm for Craig David and Groove Theory, her recent tweets requesting the hiring of more “writers who truly understand” the “culture of r&b”, probably aren’t about me. I’m stuck in a historical materialist understanding of r&b as a function of black middle class expansion and corporate neo-colonialism. And I understand Solange as the fly femme flâneur of this Brooklyn moment, where we’re still dancing to Whitney in the shadow of the Barclays Center.
