IN SOUTH AFRICA, SOLANGE KNOWLES FILMS VIDEO OF NEW TRACK, LOSING YOU
Photo – In Capetown, on cultural ambassador duties for the USA, Solange pays tribute to the culture of ZA’S fashion, reports Time Live ZA. The Knowles family are so hard to keep up with, trends wise – they move so fast.
New music by artist Solange Knowles. It’s been a while since the artist released a single. Arriving at a time when the gap between R&B and electronica is rapidly closing Knowles styles has a simplicity that echoes ’60s music. The song is titled Losing You.
The track captures a paradoxical blend of resignation and hope — that moment when the sun emerges after a downpour. Watch the video, shot in South Africa, below. I’ve always appreciated Solange’s humor on twitter.
Her brain, naturally clever creative. She was my (unofficial) ebonics tutor online in the USA when twitter first started up. 100% style and a knowing ornate awareness within her bones and dna. As an artist who contributes to U.S culture continually, Solange is totz underrated.
Ryan Seacrest’s website notes: Solange tweeted, “So humbled, & grateful for the overwhelming response to Losing you.“ The single, co-written and produced by Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, is upbeat with a classic tribal feel. The music video is a nod to 70′s quirk fashion US statements and is produced by videos director, Alan Del Rio Ortiz.
Normally well-planned, Solange says the idea was to just go with it, the new neighborhood she was experiencing:
“It was sort of a ‘grab a camera and let’s go’ moment. I think I’ve always liked her because she uses the words “humble” and “grateful” a lot. That’s usually a clear sign of a winner.
