It’s a breath of fresh air. Solange’s new album “Seat at the Table” is pushing the envelope musically, visually and spiritually. Solange shines as a vocalist and creative genius. This entire album is a lovesong to black people, initiating soulspeak that heals, connects and soothes. This masterpiece is miles apart from everything else happening in music and solidifies Solange as a true artists who has carved out a lane in the music industry that is all her own.
Solange calls the album a tribute to her parents but touches on the entire black experience including racism, the editing of black emotions and the weight of oppression. It even features cameos from Master P, Lil Wayne and rare interviews of her parents. Listening to the album reminds me of hearing the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill for the first time or Erykah Badu’s Mama’s Gun album. It also similarly sets itself apart from everything else in the mainstream.
