Solange finishes off her personally-put-together compilation Saint Heron, the first release on her imprint Saint Records, with a brand new jam titled Cash In. ”We don’t need a love affair” she croons, in this post-Dev Hynes era of hers that is in every way as good as the era she re-invented herself in. It sounds like she finally found her own sound, one that perfectly fits with the likes of Saint Heron-contributors Cassie, Kingdom, Jhené Aiko and the likes. Speaking of Cassie, here’s a new hot jam of hers titled Indo that was written and produced by Solange and also appears on Saint Heron. How ‘bout a duet, ladies?
Solange sports her moves and afro in the video for Lovers In The Parking Lot, a flashy affair shot in her hometown of Houston, TX. Co-directed by the star herself as well as Peter J. Brant and Emily Kai Bock, this video is another .gif-friendly piece that compliments Solange’s view on life in general: fun, flashy and pretty great overall.
Less than a year ago, Dev Hynes sent a vibey instrumental to Solange, an instrumental over which she penned Looks Good With Trouble as a prelude to her cover of the former’s Bad Girls off her True EP. An extended version was always something we dreamt of, but not even in our baddest dreams we dared to imagine it would have Kendrick Lamar featuring on it.
Solange and Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) strike again after the infectuous Losing You with Lovers In The Parking Lot - we can’t wait for her new album/7-track EP True that’s dropping next week via Terrible Records. Would a Beyoncé collab be too much of a hassle?
The person responsible behind this amazing Destiny’s Child remix, the gifted sound-of-the-future-forecaster Cyril Hahn, just released another perfectly re-imagined . The bass is oh so present, with Solange’s vocals being chopped to something almost club-friendly - a futuristic pop jam/gem that sounds even more futuristic in this remixed version.
It sounds/looks like Solange's musical career is about to finally set off with her new Losing You. She teamed up with Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) for both writing- and production-purposes, and the result is eh, a flawless but interesting pop song. Directed by Melina Matsoukas, out on 12” next month (and digitally today) via Terrible Records.
