Besides being the sister of the extremely famous Beyonce’, Solange has a very interesting singing career of her own. 4 years after her last EP True, she is back with a socially charged album produced mostly by the soulful Raphael Saadiq.
Featuring hip-hop/soul acts like Q-Tip, Quest Love, and Lil Wayne A Seat at the Table shouldn’t be mistaken for the all too familiar trapped out r&b album. No sir, this record is laced with soulful baselines, beautiful chords, and soulful slides that have taken time and effort to craft.
The underlining tone of the album is rebellious but instead of embodying an angry sound, it’s much more encouraging. It touches on self improvement, racial bias, and even features interludes from powerful black business owners such as Master P and Tina Knowles.
All in all, A Seat at the Table is a very solid record. It deserves it’s own shadow, as does Salonge. Stream it here.
