No lie, I still enjoy Solange's cover of the Dirty Projectors' "Stillness is the Move." It was kind of a genius move that resulted in newfound interest from a wider audience. Surprise! Like many of us, she also listens to all kinds of music that doesn't necessarily fall into "urban" categories. Empowered by her indie hype in a recent interview with New York Magazine, which focuses entirely on the positive effects the covers had on her career (all theoretical at this point; the third album is in progress), Solange is excited about the accolades she's received. Björk dug it!
Plus, she's fairly comfortable with all the cross-over talk and jokes about "the white kids not jacking our style anymore" because "we're taking it back!" It's actually funny, you know, because of the entire 20th century in popular music. And because it isn't true.
