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 MuuMuse– Losing 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’ :)
