In the mag, FKA twigs talked about people calling her music “alternative.”
“If I say ‘alternative red’ to you, it’s not red, is it? ‘Alternative R&B’ is patronizing to R&B. R&B is R&B — it doesn’t need an alternative,” FKA said. “There are plenty of artists now experimenting with electronic music, manipulating sounds. We can make a train into a synth. We can make drips into hi-hats. I can record sounds on my phone and make a song out of a city. I don’t know what that has to do with R&B.”
