This week, Danyel Smith talks blue-eyed soul and musical segregation of the past and the present and how it affects artists’ legacies. She also talks about the difficulty of reckoning with this truth as it relates to being a fan of talented white artists like Madonna and Adele. Later, Danyel is joined by her sister and friend of the show, Raquel Smith, to discuss Raquel’s all-time favorite, Teena Marie.
