Solange Releases New Music + Visuals – ‘A Seat at The Table’



[Singing starts]

“Cranes In The Sky”
I tried to drink it away

I tried to put one in the air
I tried to dance it away
I tried to change it with my hair

I ran my credit card bill up
Thought a new dress make it better
I tried to work it away
But that just made me even sadder

I tried to keep myself busy
I ran around circles
Think I made myself dizzy
I slept it away, I sexed it away
I read it away

[Singing ends]
Sorry, I can’t get this song out of my head.

If you have been following the career of Solange Knowles, then you know she has carved her own lane in this industry from her fashion to her music. She walks in her own light and makes no apologies for her creations and her artistry.

Recently, the singer and fashion enthusiast released her fourth album – ‘A Seat at The Table.” This album redefines who Solange really is and we (the fans) are loving (and living) every single note. The album includes narration from rap/hip hop mogul, Master P and words from her parents – Tina Lawson and Matthew Knowles. This latest project was written, composed and executive-produced by Solange. Check out the track list:


Soft tones, rich beats, narration, culture, empowerment, love, struggle is what the album embodies. The 30-year-old created quite a buzz on social media with her, ‘Cranes in the Sky’ number, which is story about dealing with heartbreak, womanhood and being a black woman in America. With all the police killings and racial discrimination going on in America, Solange’s fans received this album’s content with open arms sharing their feeling across social media.


Celebrities like, Scandal star Kerry Washington and gospel singer, Michelle Williams expressed their views of the album:

In reaction to the overwhelming, positive response to her masterpiece, Solange posted her gratitude:

“When I first started writing this record I was tired, filled with grief, and feeling broken. I felt so many got to create my narrative and I wanted to tell my story, our story, in my own words, and in my own voice. 4 years later I am completely overwhelmed and humbled with pride and GRATITUDE for all of the love I have received on #aseatatthetable . I’m actually stunned still. I can’t even put into words. Thank you all. I can’t thank you enough.”

Days later after the album’s release, the mother-of-one, released two visuals to accompany the album – ‘Cranes in the Sky’ and ‘Don’t Touch My Hair.” The visuals were directed by her husband, Alan Ferguson and mama Tina Knowles had a role in this as well. She designed some of the statement pieces for the video.

You can download the album now on iTunes and Amazon music.
