Your auntie took a moment to listen to Solange Knowles‘s new album to see what the hype was about.
Yes, the album is introspective, soulful, ambitious… etc. But it isn’t anything we haven’t heard before.
If you like singers who sound like they’re struggling to do too much with too little, you will love Solange’s new album.
It wasn’t a disappointment, but the album doesn’t chart any new ground.
She sounds like Beyonce‘s little sister — and that’s not a compliment.
As usual, my people follow the crowds instead of listening with their own 2 ears.
The entire album gets a B for her husband Alan Ferguson‘s visuals, and Solange gets a C for effort.
LMAO @ you all falling for this fake deep, fake hipster bullshit. I skimmed through the album. It was just OKAY. Her collabs her horrible choices but the album was not that bad. It sounds like any of these other alternative hipster R&B albums. I will say she has a better voice than her screaming sister.
And the promo photos for the album is terrible. Solange looks like SIRlange in these photos. She needs to return the style she jacked to Janelle Monae, Kesha, and all the other hipster black girls she ripped off of.
If you wanna listen to some real alternative R&B check out Maxwell’s new album, KING, Jesse Boykins and Kaytranada.
When I first started writing this record I was tired, filled with grief, and feeling broken. I felt so many got to create my narrative and all I wanted to tell my story, our story, in my own words, and in my own voice. 4 years later I am completely overwhelmed and humbled with pride and GRATITUDE for all of the love I have received on #aseatatthetable . I'm actually stunned still. I can't even put into words. Thank you all. I can't thank you enough.
