Solange had the Blackest Met Gala after party ever.
The “Cranes In The Sky” singer tapped Diamond and Princess of Crime Mob to perform at her party.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Diamond and Princess are two of the people responsible for the negro spiritual known as “Knuck If You Buck.”
Solange posted a video of Crime Mob delivering the best performance of the night at the Met Gala after party.

This isn’t the first time Solange brought the culture to the Met Gala.
She wore a whole du-rag to the gala last year. When asked about her inspiration, she gave the perfect response.

“My inspiration was Black Madonna, Saint Heron…all of the Black and African saints,” she said. “And I’m really excited because my du-rag says ‘my god wears a du-rag.’”
It’s clear Solange can do no wrong.
