Solange’s Seat at the Table
R&B singer-songwriter Solange Knowles recently released Seat at the Table, an R&B masterpiece that takes on race, social issues, anger, injustice, healing and more in exquisite, minimalist fashion.
Described by Knowles, who is the sister of Beyonce, as a “project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing,” the record combines commentary, observation, family history and first-hand experiences into a powerful record that engages emotionally, intellectually and musically from start to finish. As Spin reports:
“[Seat at the Table] is among the most exquisite productions of the year, each track silken-smooth and replete with quietly virtuosic instrumental flourishes—and in service of a story of pain and healing.”
Don’t sleep on this cultural and musical masterpiece.
