PLAYLIST: WANNA BE MORE THAN HOMIES

18th March 2021

Playlist & Artwork by Tina Tona

Music’s favorite subject has always been love, and Black artists through the ages have sung about it in the most unforgettable ways. This is an ode to Black love in all its forms, and to the beautiful moments it has offered us all! Enjoy this journey through the sounds, both old and new, of being Black and in love.

Tina Tona is a 19-year-old multi-medium Rwandese/Ugandan artist from the DMV. They specialize in film photography and collage art, and use their work to highlight the nuances of Blackness and femininity. They are deeply inspired by black artists such as Solange and Andre 3000, and hope that one day their work can be used as a tool to engage with Afro-futurism the way theirs is.
