DEFINITELY A POWERFUL INTERVIEW BETWEEN TWO OF MUSIC MOST SUCCESSFUL SISTERS
I may not be the biggest Beyonce’ groupie, but you know I love me some Solange!!! *searches for “Cranes in the Sky” on Google Play*
Let me start off by saying how AMAZING Solange’s new album A Seat At The Table was. Hands down. From track-to-track. Her album was flawless. It not only showed her humility and how human she is; it also told a story about how the black community is the chosen people out of the rest. She travelled through being a whole woman; a pure woman, with emotions, insecurities, empowerment and success. She told about having your own and being your own boss. She dropped knowledge from the one and only boss himself, Master P and even took you through segregation and poverty in the black community. Solange literally takes your whole life in A Seat at the Table and throws it in your face for what it is. She embodied her whole self and found her light under Queen Bey’s.
Moving along; earlier this week, Queen Bey sat Solange down for an intimate interview with Interview Magazine. They discussed Solange’s three-year creative process while writing A Seat At The Table, in which she told how Master P and Missy Elliot were her inspiration and influence.
“I remember reading or hearing things about Master P that reminded me so much of Dad growing up,” Solange said. “And they also have an incredible amount of love and respect for one another. And I wanted a voice throughout the record that represented empowerment and independence, the voice of someone who never gave in, even when it was easy to lose sight of everything that he built, someone invested in black people, invested in our community and our storytelling, in empowering his people. You and I were raised being told not to take the first thing that came our way, to build our own platforms, our own spaces, if they weren’t available to us. And I think that he is such a powerful example of that.”
