Throwback Thursday: Res 

Before Santigold, SZA, and FKA Twigs, Res was an alternative black girl in the early 2000s. With the release of her debut album How I Do, she combined indie rock, soul and R&B.

“Golden Boys” is the first-track of How I Do. She talks about the industry boys and all of their typical antics. It’s funny how this song can still be applied 15 years later. Res sang it perfectly with the lyrics:

“When I was young I thought you had it won
I saw you on T.V. you made life look fun
But then years go by and people grow
I realize it’s all a freak show”

The glitz and glamor are usually (or should I say) always smoke and mirrors.

Perception is not reality.
