There isn’t much not to like about Solange, from her music, to her style, to her choosing Rog Walker to photograph her wedding.
You’ll come to like her even more after reading her new interview with her sister, Beyoncé, in this month’s Interview, available now.
If you want to learn more about the creation of her newest album, A Seat at the Table, Solange has something for you, “it really started with wanting to unravel some truths and some untruths. There were things that had been weighing heavy on me for quite some time. And I went into this hole, trying to work through some of these things."
If you want to learn more about the origins of her worldview, you’ll find out about that too, “I feel like, in the South in general, but specifically in our world growing up, people were expressive and vivid storytellers. In the hair salon or in the line at the grocery store; there was never a dull moment. I feel so happy that I got to grow up in a place where you could be the pastor's wife, you could be a lawyer, you could be a stripper on the side, you could be a schoolteacher—we saw every kind of woman connect on one common experience, which was that everyone wanted to be great and everyone wanted to do better."
And if all you really want to know if just what Solange thinks of her older sister, she’ll tell it to you straight, “You did a kickass job. You were the most patient, loving, wonderful sister ever. In the 30 years that we've been together, I think we've only really, like, butted heads ... we can count on one hand."
