Devonte Hynes is a musician I have just recently discovered, in the last week or so. If you get a second, check out his song "Your Not Good Enough". NPR just did a short piece on him, where he had this really interesting quote about how the public views an artists decision to change up their approach and sound.
"You know, it's funny because I think, as a general rule, that people seem to think that if you do lots of different things over the course of, like, a timeline, it means that you kind of disregard what you did before. But that's not true of me. I still genuinely like everything I did as much as I liked it when I released it."
