    Mush of the entertainment industry seems to be stuck on mediocrity and low standards. In that kind of industry there doesn't seem to be any place for these exceptionally beautiful and talented black women and others like them. Black people really need to create their own space outside of the tawdry and stagnant place.

    Nao and Ari Lennox are my girls. I tried to put a lot of ppl on years ago but no one wanted to hear me though. I donโ€™t listen to rap that much anymore which is why I donโ€™t listen to a lot of the other artist you mentioned. Iโ€™m going to listen to Georgia Reign though

    Black music genre artists have historically not initially been promoted by main stream radio stations. Why is there disappointment and expectations for their acceptance now? We have always told main stream what is good music and what looks good. Why are we now waiting to be told by them? It is obvious that they do not know. Are these talented artists using lessons from their predecessors to use alternative distribution techniques? This is the first time I heard most of them. Why are they not uniting and establishing a way to be more widely distributed such as joint Spotify and You Tube channel, tour, etc. Black women are now the most educated group of people in America. We are seen representing the diversity of our group well almost everywhere, and we need more ways to represent in the music industry.

    Unfortunately I don't listen to rap, soul or jazz. I'm more into alternative rock, indie, shoegaze and electronic music and black women don't really dabble in those genres which is unfortunate. There are a few exceptions which include Grace Jones, Tina Tuner, Abra (my favourite) and Janelle Monae.

    Cardi B is big because she is attractive and very sexual in her music and on social media. Lil Kim should still be releasing hit now, but she is ugly as hell. She fucked her cute face up and her career.

    I hope people understand that entertainment is about Looks and talent. If a ugly black female sounds like Whitney Houston, it will take her a lot longer to break through because of her appearance. A male recording artist can look like Seal and sell millions of records. There is a double standard in the music biz.

    Thank you for doing this highlight because you're dead on, I've never heard of most of them.
    Georgia Reign, all I remember is ppl talking about her as Michael Blackson's girlfriend
    Dreezy, has been played on the radio, but it phased out like most songs
    Ari Lennox, she's in heavy rotation on the radio right now, but I never see anyone interviewing her or featuring her on their channels so I had never seen her before. (very talented, she definitely was into Ms. Badu)
    The others I'll have to check 'em out.
    Thank you Chrissie!
