If you’re like us, you spent Thanksgiving evening—or will be spending the next few days—binge-watching Spike Lee’s reboot of his 1986 classic, “She’s Gotta Have It. ”

Nola Darling and her trio of lovers are back, this time navigating love and relationships in the 21st century: Trump is president, Brooklyn is being overtaken by white gentrifiers, and big butts are still the flavor du jour—although the stakes to maintain beauty standards are higher this time around. 

The reboot presents a dope collection of music—after all, we *are* talking about Spike Lee, here—with some black girl favorites—like Solange, Méshell NdegeOcello and Sade.
