Watch Kali Uchis Browse D.C. Record Stores Som And Joint Custody

By Ally Schweitzer

Soul/R&B singer Kali Uchis abandoned the D.C. area for Los Angeles not long ago, but she shows D.C. record shops some love in a new video produced by Fact.

The Alexandria-reared vocalist and visual artist — who says she’s working on a followup to this year’s Por Vida — is shown flipping through vinyl at Joint Custody on U Street NW and 14th Street NW shop Som Records.

“I think a lot of my friends thought I was a weirdo or thought I was trying really hard to be different because I listened to old music and stuff. They’d be like, ‘Why are you listening to that? Where did you even find that music?'” Uchis says in the video. “But the heart wants what the heart wants.”
