I have just three questions that come into my mind when I get an opportunity,” she says. “Will this help me, will this hurt me, or will this just [make me] stay the same and not progress?
Solange in Vulture:
“I made my entire record on my own from top to bottom,” she says. “Everything from studio-equipment rentals to actually creating a studio. The entire album has been about me calling my friends, like, ‘Will you make a video with me?’ ‘Okay, cool. Let’s do it.’”
Solange Knowles is motherland voguing in hot pants for all of our lives in her new video “Losing You.” Her style and sound have evolved into something so effortless and completely her own.
Solange told Pitchfork:
“When Melina and I decided to film ‘Losing You’ in South Africa, we really didn’t have a real firm concept in place. It was sort of a grab a camera and let’s go moment. I knew I wanted to capture a couple things: the vibe of our friendship and all of the crazy escapades we’ve gotten ourselves into all over the world, and the abstract and elegant Le Sape Society (Society for the Advancement of People of Elegance) formed in the Congo which was documented by Daniele Tamagni in his Gentleman of Bacongo book. We called Daniele to guide us, and some of my friends from New York came down to Cape Town and we all had a very damn good time.”
