    yep, I’m excited. Blackheart is still a bop — from song one through song fourteen.

    She is extremely under-rated. Each of her releases is musical masterpieces…why hasn’t the public caught up yet????

    I know I’m ready! Already got my order in!:) she’s really taking us back with the cassette release. THATs pretty neat. I would buy one just to have it and never use it.

    Isn’t that headdress cultural appropriation, being a culture vulture and all those epithets that black cultural commentators and community leaders are so quick and fond to hurl at every occasion? Oh I forgot, the headdress isn’t part of the black culture so it is fine to use it!!!!

      Are you okay? She’s from New Orleans…. Please do your research.

        Well she might have indian roots I don’t know.
        But not every black person living in NO has indian ancestors.
        The song is okay but not very special – I still like her

        As per 23andme, I am almost 3 per cent NIGERIAN, and I look Caucasian: I also have Spanish, Italian, Sardinian, Bristish, Ashkenazi and North African in me. I am pretty sure that the intellectually indolent crowd will cry cultural appropriation if I wear something like an afro, Kendall Jenner any one?; that loud and obnoxious crowd of people like you that don’t know a thing about the real meaning of cultural appropriation, and only follow social media commentator’s and influencer’s criminally supine ignorance, or, worst yet, political and community leaders with a political agenda that like to stoke racial tensions in this already racist and fascist society for their own political gain.

    The Native Americans are going to be up in arms. Talking about how only tribal war chiefs are allowed to wear them, bla bla bla When I see them speak up for Black people, I’ll care. Better a headdress than blackface smh
