she has usually brushed off that talk so i was surprised to read that post and not be aware that it happened. which it didn't, so i'm not surprised anymore.

I want to see her again so badly. I was tempted to go to Chicago to see her for my birthday.

People should really stop covering "Heroes."

Won't lie I loved the Wallflowers version. I wanna say it was on the Godzilla soundtrack?

Bowie songs are tough to cover.

"Yoga" is the first song of hers I've outright hated. She must be under a lot of pressure from the label to deliver a hit.

Yeah it's terrible. Sounds like a song written for Beyonce but was thrown to the wayside. Such a cheap, terrible song (and video).

I don't hate it, but it seems pretty beneath her.

I think I need to come to terms with the fact that she'll likely never sell enough albums to justify a South American tour, and just travel to see her somewhere.

I have a project that will keep me in Buenos Aires for at least another year. After that, my goal is to move there. My sister is moving to Brooklyn with her girlfriend and I'm getting the itch again.

I think I agree but I might like Django Jane a little bit more in the context of the album.

I had to check The Electric Lady after reading all the praise here.

I have to say, after listening it two times that when it comes to modern RnB artists, I find e.g. Solange, Erykah Badu, D'Angelo and Maxwell far more interesting. I guess she's not really RnB though, her sound seems to lean more towards pop, or at least more towards "commercial" RnB. So maybe I am approaching her music from the wrong perspective.

Whether she's some sort of pop music innovator, I don't know. Nothing really stood out for me as something special or radically new, but then again I am not an expert when it comes to modern day pop music. The last pop artist that really got me excited, and what I though was something refreshingly new, was Knower.
