As I’ve mentioned before, Raphael Saddiq and Nikka Costa have new albums totally drenched in a ’60s soul vibe. But they’re not the only ones acting like they cut their records in Muscle Shoals, Ala., or the basement of Hitsville.
Below are three music videos – from Solange Knowles, Estelle and Ryan Shaw – illustrating there’s a full-blown fetish going on.
(At least Estelle has an excuse; she’s from the U.K. The Brits never stopped loving our soul music.)
I’m not knocking it. Just seems a little gimmicky.
