Kenny Lattimore Visits ‘Sister Circle Live,’ Talks Cultural Appropriation in Music

R&B veteran Kenny Lattimore made a press stop to TV One’s Sister Circle Live on Monday (Dec. 4).

Dressed in comfortable winter attire, the dapper crooner sat down with hosts Rashan Ali and Syleena Johnson to discuss a range of topics including his new album, Vulnerable.

While the response from fans and critics for his current project has been great, he revealed he wanted to go with another genre for this studio effort. “I was going to make a jazz album to be honest,” he shared. “But my last album, Anatomy of a Love Song, did really well and I was like, ‘Well let me give the public one more in this particular time period before I start to change it up a little bit.’”

With cuffing season in full effect, Kenny says his new album has him “open to falling in love again.”

Lattimore also dished on cultural appropriation in music. “To be the creator of a music art form and to be dismissed from it is one of the most devastating things ever,” he candidly said.

Lattimore’s ninth studio album, Vulnerable, is available in stores and for streaming. His holiday album, A Kenny Latimore Christmas, is out too.

SZA Perfroms ‘The Weekend’ and ‘Love Galore’ on ‘SNL’

SZA is having an incredible year. After scoring a chart-topping album and five Grammy nominations, the New Jersey native kept the momentum going on Saturday Night Live. Serving as the musical guest, SZA performed her fan-favorite single “The Weekend” and her Travis-Scott assisted track “Love Galore.”

Backed by a choir and a live band, SZA did a stripped-down version of both tracks, which was pleasant. Her performance focused on her beautiful vocals and the lyricism of each song.

“The Weekend” and “Love Galore” are lifted from SZA’s debut album, Ctrl, which is out now. Both songs have a combined 192 million streams on Spotify alone.
