Beyonce’s Baby Sister Solange Knowles is a Powerhouse In Her Own Right

We know we spend a lot of time kvel­ling over a cer­tain Beyoncé, but let us NOT for­get that we have a stun­ning soul-pop pow­er­house in her younger sis­ter, Solange Knowles. Not only does the 26-year-old model/singer/DJ have a seri­ous ear for a catchy pop song (see:”Sand­cas­tle Disco,” and “Fly­ing Over­seas” with Theophilus Lon­don), but we are a teen­sy bit obsessed with fol­low­ing Solange’s eclec­tic per­son­al style and creep­ing on her fam­i­ly pic­tures via var­i­ous social media ser­vices. And now we’re obsessed with Solange’s brand-new video for her song “Los­ing You

Direct­ed by Meli­na Mat­soukas, the super-stylish video was filmed in South Africa and takes a cin­e­mat­ic, yet non­cha­lant tone that we’re cer­tain only Solange could pull off. Open­ing to scenes of every­day life in a slight­ly run down, yet charm­ing South African neigh­bor­hood, we see Solange danc­ing in a vari­ety of loudly-patterned pieces (style isn’t exact­ly our forte, but WOW, we are blown away by this series of looks). As the clip con­tin­ues, Solange is seen danc­ing in the street with an entourage of absurd­ly hip friends, reclin­ing on a pile of mat­tress­es (you had to be there), being wheeled down the street on a bicy­cle, hangin’ out on some bleach­ers, and just gen­er­al­ly mess­ing around with her fan­tas­ti­cal­ly styl­ish cohorts (all of which cul­mi­nates in a hand-in-hand dive into a giant pool). Sounds like a pret­ty great day to us! All the while, she’s del­i­cate­ly singing, “I’m not the one that you should be mak­ing your enemy/ Tell me the truth, boy, am I los­ing you for good?” over a series of soft synths, cleverly-embedded sam­ples, and hand­clap­py rhythms. Now all we want to know is, how can we become friends with Solange?? And will she please re-arrange our clos­ets?!
