Only thing to survive the crash
The album title, Black Radio refers to the black box that survives the crash of an airplane.
(Though, I guess black boxes aren’t actually black)
The title works metaphorically:
Modern mainstream music is shit (crashed), and the economy (crashed) shits on real musicians who got to work hard, but Bey and Glasper still making tight music (this album, Black Radio)
