Solange Speaks To “The Fader” On New LP/ Comparisons To Beyoncé’s “Lemonade”🍋
Solange returned last week with her long-awaited third LP titled, “A Seat At The Table.” The singer was immediately supported by huge acts, including Calvin Harris, Missy Elliott, and her big sister, Beyoncé.
Knowles spoke with “The Fader,” where she opened up about the critically acclaimed LP, social issues, and comparisons to sister's “Lemonade.”
On Having A Responsibility To Speak On Social Issues:
On The Recording Process:
Comparisons To Beyoncé’s “Lemonade:”
While Beyoncé was vocal on black issues this era, it wasn’t a major theme of the album. The album could be perceived as pro-black because of promo. For example, she paid homage to the black panthers at the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show.
Not to say Beyoncé wasn’t vocal enough on the issue, but just not as majorly as Solange was on “A Seat At The Table.” It also comes off as genuine from Solange.
