Solange came through last week with her third ("proper") LP, A Seat at the Table.
Already generating acclaim wherever it goes, it's a body of work that ultimately celebrates the Diva's blackness. A risky topic, it was always going to be controversial for those with thin skin. Solange makes it clear early on that this collection isn't for them and remains unbothered by their precious fweelins'. This singer-songwriter is seeking to uplift her community, without concern for those who might find the message uncomfortable. However, away from the lyrical content, it's surprisingly a chill listen, laced with mid-tempos and gorgeous harmonies.
For those of you who haven't had a chance to enjoy Solo's newest work, you can now feast upon the visuals for two of Table's cuts. Get into Don’t Touch My Hair and Cranes In The Sky, below.
