Watch: Solange Debuts A Video For ‘Losing You’

Meet The Sapeurs
'Am I Losing You For Good?'

So. I definitely have a new jam! A couple of days ago Solange Knowles released a new video for Losing You and I can safely say that I’ve never heard a song like this. Losing You is, obviously, reminiscent of lots of music; it’s 80s, it’s pop, it’s R&B and still… it sounds so new and refreshing and awesome! I’m seriously in my happy place and I fully agree with Brad Stern at MuuMuseLosing You is the definition of ‘repeat-friendly.’ The video (directed by Melina Matsoukas) was shot in South Africa, where Solange is joined by a troupe of men/performers/fashion icons/etiquette specialists known as the Sapeurs. Beyoncé is obviously awesome, but Solange is really my kinda girl.

PITNBR Seth Leeper, you were right! I do love this song, and it is ‘like an acoustic 80s in a tin can’ :)

  1. I crazy love this song still! (Granted, it’s only been a few days its release.) But I can’t stop listening to it! So glad you like it. It’ll be interesting to see if this impacts radio and the charts.

    Now this is the artistic sister. I’m totally addicted to this song.

    • @Xadax — OMG, ME TOO! I can’t believe how great this song is … I hope we get an entire album of stuff like this from Solange :D

    • Xadax, I remember reading years ago (before Solange was really coming out with music, I think) that Bey said she would never release a single without asking for her sister’s opinion first. She knew Solange had a certain something (musically) that she didn’t have, at least not in the same way. So I think Solange has been instrumental in Bey’s success and hopefully she’ll get her own following too.

    I love that Solange is finding her musical voice. As an ex-preschool teacher I listened to her children’s album. Her version of Wheels On the Bus is awesome and doesn’t make you want to kill yourself like most music for toddlers do.
    I love the song and love the video. Reminds me of liming back home in Trinidad. Her style is also amazing! I hope someone gives her props for being a fashion icon. Plus she is such a role-model for black women who have chosen to rock their natural hair! Love me some Solange.

    The Sapeurs have GQ potential. I liked the video the song not much.

  5. Here is the source for the original image we obtained:

    I noted the source in the description of the photo, which was less visible since the photo was only used as an overlay for the video.
    I’ve updated the post with a new image and deleted your photo. I hope this takes care of everything.

    Brilliant work, by the way!
