We're Losing it Over Solange Knowles' "Losing You"
Oct 02, 2012 - by Emily Draznik
This catchy mellowed out song about desire is the latest to come from singer/songwriter Solange Knowles. The under appreciated baby sis' of Beyoncé actually has a lot talent that could finally bring her out of her big sisters's shadow. Check out the groovy and fashionable vid set in Cape Town after the jump.
Fashion darling Solange Knowles is better known for her relation to her older sister Beyoncé Knowles, but her new single Losing You is definitely an indie hit in the making. The single is the first off of her follow up to 2008's Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams.
Co-written by Dev Hynes of Blood Orange (whom we saw perform with Theophilus London last month during New York Fashion Week), the collaboration is a result in a new sound for Solange that is incredibly refreshing. Hynes also recently penned Sky Ferriera's Everything is Embarrassing and when listening one after the other, the two tracks have a similar 80s beat while Solange gives a more tropical feel.
In the video, Solange hangs out with a bevy of colorfully suited men and trendsetters in the South African city. Our favorite looks include Solange's red orange suit and her shorter than short acid washed shorts paired with loafer pumps. We can picture ourselves now, jamming and partying away with Solange and her friends. We're actually in the back corner of her van, you just can't see cause we're riding in the trunk. Regardless, have your people call Solange's people and maybe we'll give you a ride next time you're in Cape Town.
