THEESatisfaction opens its second album, EarthEE, with the lines, “Said the bird to the water: May I take a sip? May I dip my toes in it?” Whether the introduction is meant as an avian parable or, more likely, a declaration of intent, it effectively functions as a disclaimer identical to the one cheekily issued by Beyoncé halfway through “Blow”: I’m about to get into this. In both cases, the warning is purely decorative. Beyoncé waited until the middle of an explicitly sexual song to deem it “for all my grown women,” and THEESatisfaction is asking to dip its toes in now, two records and seven years into a genre-melting career that has never waited for permission.
