“When we think of New Orleans, we think of jazz, soul, R&B. We don’t think of electronic, dance, and pop. It’s all I’ve ever known and what I wanted to expose the world to, through the lens of New Orleans,” Richard told MTV News. “I’m hoping that through this album, you’ll start to see the celebration of artists not being celebrated by the color of their skin or the genre that we choose to box them in, but rather by the talent and the art that they expose to the world.”
