Solange - A Seat at the Table


#1

It’s coming out on Friday - really looking forward to it, is anyone else?

Let’s get us in the mood with the best song off True:


#2

I am looking forward to listening to this although I’ve never fully got into an entire album of hers.


#3

Yeah I kind of just liked one off songs or singles but I really liked ‘Losing You’ so I downloaded the EP on spotify and its badically all I have to listen to in the car on the way to work.

looking forward to it. been waiting too long, imo. i’ve lapped all the saint heron releases/mixtapes/playlists up since true, as well.

judging from the tracklisting etc. i’m assuming we can expect it to be really political and pro-black, 1) cause it’s solange, 2) the song titles ‘don’t touch my hair’ ‘an ode to self care’ :thumbsup: (also, ‘tina taught me’ :100:% my favourite instagram mam) 3) the features- kelela, kelly rowland, tweet, lil wayne, q-tip, dev hynes, sampha, b.j., the-dream. got moses sumney, nia andrews on there two, who she’s featured on saint heron before.

sol-angel is criminally overlooked. genuinely surprised how many fans of the true ep/stuff she did with blood orange haven’t even heard it, considering it was generally well-recieved critically, re-released last year and features yer likes of bilal, pharrell, q-tip etc… lots of what would be considered ‘bangers’ 'round these parts on there.


#5

There literally isn’t a single memorable tune on here, but as a ‘piece of work’ it’s rather lovely.


#6

Didn’t really hold my attention from an initial listen there…


#7

52 minutes of my life i’ll never get back.


#8

#9

Love it. Do we know if Dev Hynes is involved in production again? Couldn’t figure out if so


#10

Love Sol-Angel too, but it’s so different to True - feel like I have to be in more of the right mood to listen to it.


#11

only on ‘interlude: this moment’ (they were alleged to have had a falling out at some point)




#12

Loving this record.


#13

this record is beautiful
