Syd’s Fin dropped earlier this year in February debuting at No. 11 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums.
“I think the world is just starting to become ready for this kind of open-mindedness. I’ve written songs about women since I’ve been involved with women, but I do know a few gay female artists who back in the day would write songs about men,” she said about the album to NME. “One of my old friends, she was a rapper and she rapped about men and being involved with men. I think I asked her one time, ‘Aren’t you gay?’ She was like, ‘Yeah, but all my friends are straight – I make music for them to ‘enjoy.’ I thought that was really interesting. But for me, I make music for myself to enjoy.”
