“It’s not R&B if you have rhythm and no blues or if you have blues and no rhythm. So for all of this rhythmic music that doesn’t have soul, and it’s not saying anything. That’s not R&B in my opinion. It’s a genre that just embodies so much. You have the blues in there, you have gospel in there, you have spirituals in there — it’s a little bit of everything. And that’s what’s special about it to me. Literally inside of R&B, I can give you something that sounds like a quartet record but it’s still R&B … I feel like I can be everything I am musically inside of that genre.”

“Because R&B reaches the soul. I think a lot of the stuff that’s out right now is for the partying. We wanna party, we wanna have sex, we wanna drink. But R&B really gets to the soul and what we’re going through.”
