Elton John tells Interview magazine that he feels music’s gotten to a point where it doesn’t know color. Elton said, “I hate saying this, but these albums by Remy Shand and Heist sound much more soulful to me than any from the big black singers of the moment. Apart from Mary J. Blige’s and India.Arie’s, there hasn’t been a great black vocalist album for a long, long time. Although nothing beats a great black singer, rap, like soul, isn’t limited to black artists; I think white people have just as much soul in their music… For instance, Remy Shand pays tribute to all the foundations laid down by the great black male soul singers, but he has his own style as well.”
