I have been living under a rock, so much so that in 2016 my friend had to send me the Vimeo limited link to Beyoncé’s Lemonade because she probably pictured me wandering confused into some conversation asking “Beyoncé sells lemonade now?!” She followed it up with: ‘you have to check this out’. I felt quenched and was so joyful in my dire diaspora, by the glorious parade of beautiful black women and black art when I finally viewed it five days later.

Between being displaced, unsettled, and an unsubscriber of social media, I preserve what time I have for music…
