Nerd here: I agree with anon who said they wonder what the rest of the band will do for work. I wonder that too. I guess if all else fails, they could be music teachers? I don’t know. I hope they have some kind of back up plans and endorsement deals to depend on as soon as all of this is over. As for solving the potential future problem of Bruno being labeled as an appropriator for “abandoning” R&B for a new genre, or facing ridicule for having the same sound, I think a good way to avoid that problem is to bring elements of his own culture into his own music. Bruno is Filipino/Puerto Rican from Hawaii right? So, it would be pretty cool if he added some traditional instrumentation from any one of those cultures that he’s apart of and incorporate it in with modern R&B music. He wouldn’t be accused of abandoning R&B, he’s bringing something new to the game by adding in traditional music from his heritage so it’s not appropriation, and if he was to mix in some traditional Filipino instruments in with R&B then he can’t be accused of stealing some one’s else sound and he would avoid law suits, plus he wouldn’t be labeled as “Unoriginal” anymore because I don’t think anyone else is mixing Filipino/Hawaiian/Puerto Rican instruments in with modern R&B/Hiphop music right now. If you have no idea what I’m talking about when I say mix in traditional cultural instruments in with modern R&B/Hiphop, a GOOD example that I can think of is the song “Get Ur Freak On” by Missy Elliot. I don’t know if anyone knows this, but if you listen to the song, it actually incorporates elements of traditional Indian Bhangra music in the song. You can hear a six-note Punjabi melody base played on a Traditional Indian stringed instrument called a Tumbi looped over and over again all throughout the track. And in the beginning of the song, you can hear a man speaking in Japanese. Missy Elliot is neither Indian nor Japanese, but she still fused elements from those cultures and intertwined them into modern Hiphop to create one of the most iconic songs of ALL TIME! If Missy can do it, then so can Bruno. And the best part is Bruno actually have a lot to work with growing up in Hawaii and being of Filipino/Puerto Rican heritage. He can pull elements from his culture, fuse it together with modern R&B to make his own new sound. 😊😊😊
