Chapter 221: Say My Name

90s and 00s R&B

Before Heisenberg could steal the phrase, Queen Bey was compelling subjects to say her name, in a dazzling early display of her signature dominance. Destiny’s Child’s brash confidence set the tone for the next decade of pop R&B, with songs that hit hard and take no prisoners. “1 Thing” is a marvel of tumbling percussion and ‘ding dong’ asides; TLC are considerate enough to drop the dictionary definition of the target of their scorn. Even Sisqo’s “Thong Song” is admirably upfront with its intentions; you can’t say the man doesn’t know what he likes.
