Been listening to her new stuff and remakes, and admittedly I have not paid any attention to her since the Kanye is an ass stuff.

She has really done an amazing job evolving.  Her voice is stellar, and she is writing some great stuff.  She has masterfully gotten out of the shell the record companies try to keep you in, and turned into one hell of a musician.

What do you all think of her?  Saw her name on a lot of the top albums of the year lists on this board.

    I do agree that she has an amazing voice and is a good song-writer and puts everything into her performances.

    That most recent song on the radio I've heard...there is a line where she says "every bait and switch was a work of art"....I don't agree with how the elite bait and switch people and misuse their powers.  That line rubbed me the wrong way.  I have fell victim to this many times in the last five years, people using me to get what they want or who they want.    I have had people stolen from me because the beautiful and elite knew how to manipulate the situations.  Bait and switch implies manipulation.  If it was to defeat Trump some how, then cool.  I knew that she hated Trump.  I'll never know the story behind those lyrics.  If someone does then by all means, let us know.

    as with most her stuff to my understanding, its personal. She's on the receiving end of it.

    look at the lyrics in total.

    I guess maybe I don't quite understand your pov on this. seems like another been done wrong song to me.

    Another John Mayer reference?

    Her current writing style is telling stories that are mostly made up with flourishes of the personal. So what she referencing specifically is anyone’s guess. 

    willow seems to be about starting a relationship and things may not be what they seem on the surface or initially. So that could be the bait and switch. First impressions vs. what the reality is. But clearly it’s a love song, so she must mean that their first impressions must not be what they ended up with.

    She is no idiot, she is one of those give me a annual or semi-annual fued to keep me in the news cycle type for sure.

    She has come a long way since showing her teeny bop pics in the background.
