Raphael Saadiq’s Hits Have Some Dope Backstories + So Does His Name!
Cori and Charli stanned really #hoord for this week’s guest. Borderline embarrassingly so. It’s only because he’s so cool and chill and has HITS for days! Raphael Saadiq (@raphael_saadiq) aka ⅓ of Tony! Toni! Toné! aka Still Ray stopped by to talk about his latest album “Jimmy Lee” and gave us some little-known insight into his childhood, his early music choices, and his personal philosophy for turning out hit after hit over the years. Charli got to ask the question that’d been burning for quite a while: “What’s the story behind “Ask Of You”? (If you’re a REAL Raphael Saadiq fan and real 90s R&B/movie fan, you’ll want to rush to -insert timestamp- for that answer!) What’s your favorite track that Raphael Saadiq has blessed?
