This my song ya’ll. Rick and Teena’s voice together is electric…Even though I can’t look at Rick James without laughing thanks to Dave Chapelle. He flyer than me in those red thigh-high boots 😂🤣
Hey guys I deleted this post by accident 🤦🏾♀️ so if you shared it that link will be broken, but you can repost this one 😁👍🏾
I don’t listen to a lot of mainstream music that’s not an early 2000 hit I liked before I stopped, 90s jam or real throwback but I do love me some Alicia Keys and I think her Red Table Talk was the best so far. (The only thing that had me thinking was how the song below was written in dedication to Key’s grandmother, not a man. (Though I do think about my man when I hear it lol… but that’s my point) Why is it, my mind began to think, the video doesn’t reflect that? Most people think this song is about a romantic relationship and the video further perpetuates that. I can’t help but wonder why the video doesn’t showcase the song’s intended purpose).
I’m looking forward to that Alicia and Lauryn Hill collabo! My favorite quote of the evening was:
“I don’t wanna be on nobody’s pedestal. I can just be me. I can be all my flawed, beautiful self, you be your flawed beautiful self and we just hang out and talk and sort it out.” – Alicia Keys
Thank you Nadine for that video on Twitter. I now know what I wanna post for Throwback Thursday 😂🤣 Get up and dance ya’ll aye 💃🏾🕺🏾…
