    I think it has to clearly define its own lane to work as a piece of music in my opinion. For example, FS/LS is clearly heavily indebted to Prince and MJ musically but also I have never heard either artist do a song like What Goes Around, Sexyback or Summer Love so I think someone like JT shows his influences on his sleeve but also infuses it with enough modern elements to make his own sound. I think of the artists I named, Dua Lipa did the best job at finding her own sound with Future Nostalgia, it just isn't at the level of this record.

    Again, that’s fair, but I just don’t see how Tinashe is as innovative as you’re saying she is. There’s nothing on this album I haven’t heard before somewhere else, even though I thoroughly enjoy it

    I don’t want y’all to think I’m hating because I enjoy this album but Kelela could’ve made that song man

    Kelela isn't as catchy or poppy with either her music elements or her songwriting. Tinashe deserves credit for channeling similar experimental sounds that Kelela was toying with and finding a more catchy and fun variation of that.

    Kelela is not generic, if that's the only person you can akin this sound to I'd say Tinashe is in a pretty unique space lol

    She’s not the only one but Tinashe isn’t either is my point, this has been a subsection of R&B since like 2013/2014, it’s just not that mainstream

    The closest point of reference I have for Tinashe is Little Dragon and in no goddamn way would I say they are doing the same things musically

    FKA twigs possibly, Caprisongs has some great moments but yeah I wouldn't describe this as generic really

    Maybe needs but the rest is pretty leftfield for traditional r&b

    FKA Twigs as well but I always regarded her as far more electronic than r&b. Tinashe found a good balance in both sounds and built upon her sound her entire career.

    Kelela and Twigs probably the closest stylistically to that, but Rochelle Jordan is close as well but she’s more dance leaning than R&B/pop like Tinashe is

    I just checked out some of Future Nostalgia and it reminds me of FS/LS at points

    And I don't really wanna get sucked back in there but i'll be on here until Drake drops

    No I understand what you mean, you're talking about artists like Charli XCX that may not be super popping but still make pop music, thus they are not "popular" pop music

    yes but u said u think pop music means popular music which it doesn't

    country music is super popular rn
    peso pluma is super popular rn

    neither is pop music

    pop has sub genres, electropop, dancepop (future nostalgia), hyperpop, altpop, indie pop (i hate those last two titles too), etc
