Solange dishes on her new record label, her upcoming album and more

Solange

Solange Knowles means business. It’s clear in the very first minute of our interview that the singer-turned-entrepreneur is beyond proud of Saint Heron, the debut compilation album from her recently launched independent label, Saint Records. Hitting stores on Tuesday, the record comes almost exactly one year after the release of her superb EP, True (which boasted the critical darling single, “Losing You”). Solange immediately MORE

Last week I had the chance to catch Solange's sold out show down at House of Blues over on Sunset. She has been busy promoting her latest EP release, True (featuring "Losing You"), which is totally fabulous if you haven't heard it yet. I've been a fan ever since she dropped her stellar debut album, Sol-Angel & The Hadley St. Dreams, back in 2008.

Review: Solange’s “Losing You”

Solange "Losing You"

On the record’s opening track, “God Given Name,” the songstress proclaimed that she was “no soul girl equipped with no afro,” immediately establishing herself as an artist who refused to play by rules other than her own. A love letter to the days of Motown that was steeped in equal parts disco and neo-soul, Sol-Angel And MORE

Solange returns with “Losing You”

Solange Knowles "Losing You"

A few of you may have caught Solange's 2008 release Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams, an album that was fun, adventurous, and sorely underappreciated. Well, she's back again, this time with "Losing You" off her as-of-yet unnamed third album. It's definitely something a little more experimental and avant-garde, but it works; the vocals have a nice echo to them, and the song is backed up with random bursts of screams.
