Solange Knowles just released her new video “Losing You” via Pitch Fork. The clip was filmed in Cape Town, South Africa and directed by Melina Matsoukas. Inspired by Le Sapeurs, Solange recreated the same vibe for her video. Check it out below…
the song is actually quite nice but I’m not fond of some of Solange’s dance moves.
I think that was the point!! The dance moves are suppose to be that way! She wasnt trying to be a dancer.. It was about having fun!! This video is HOT!!
I loved her dance moves, they were a flashback to 90′s… and like ^^ said… she was having fun with it, she knows she’s no Beyonce’ when it comes to dancing but does dancing have to be perfect?? It’s just supposed to be fun.
Sometimes simplicity is key and this video complements that notion oh so perfectly
So her fake ass sister is overexposed & her career has peaked…now the showbiz father are pushing Solange down our throats. How long before she has an arranged marriage. God help us…
I was thinking the samething, but towards the end of the video I realize that’s the theme they were going for. I love the song, the vibe and her. She is “NOT Beyonce” people. I’m not saying she is “NO Beyonce”. Those who think deeper know what I mean. Her sound, look and genre of music is totally different and I LOVE IT. On my album to buy are hers and ELLE VARNER.
Finally, they used all her sister’s connections, money and resources to produce somthing that’s pretty good. This girl was truly a piece of work, and even though this is another one her attempts to create an image, I must say, this works for her. I really like the song. It fits her vocal range. I really like what her stylist has done with her. Nice, Solange.
OH MY GOSH THIS IS SO SO SO SO FAKE FAKE AND EMBARRASSING TO HUSTON TX , SOUTH AFRICA AND ALL OF AMERICA . GUY SOLO IS CRAZY AND TACKY AS HELL . BEYONCE MUST HATE HER LITTLE SISTER FOR LETTING HER PUT THIS OUT THEIR .
BAD EVERYTHING AND FAKE AS HELL
SOLONGE STOP AND GET A LIFE
SOLONGE STOP AND GET A LIFE
This vid makes me giggle just a little… super fun, cute, and colorful. Very nice, I like her
What the hell is this !!! solonge making south africa as her foot stool . I do not like solonge VIDEO in Cape Town . please go back to america and get a life .
showing the tacky bull shit of south africa , is not cute or different !
solonge PLEASE stop using south africa as a show !!! to your failing career .
Whats wrong with her filming the local area of South Africa??? Her video is different and i like it. Not everything is glitz and glam. Why would she want to do a video of a nice area owned mostly my whites in South Africa?????
@South Africa Girl,She made a video there, what wrong with the area??? Nobody from “CAPE TOWN” is representing for their country. Don’t be mad @South Africa Girl that you couldn’t make a video of the “GOOD” areas of your country!!! She just did a video not a big deal, how is she using South Africa as her foot stool??? Tell me why you really mad??? Oh you wish it was you or a another fellow African that showed the local areas of the cape town.
There’s nothing wrong with her doing the video in Cape town, we are AFrican Americans and that is where we orginally came from!! I’m glad she put some of the people to work there and brought some revenue to that area!!
I like the video but the song was a little boring for me.
South Africa Girl …. you are dealing with self hate… Get a life.
@MIA SHUT THE HELL UP FOOL , MOST AFRICAN AMERICAN BLACKS IN AMERICA HATE THEIR AFRICAN ROOTS AND LOOKS . LIKE SOLONGE AND HER SITER BEYONCE THATS HAS DONE NOSE JOBS BLEACHED THEIR SKIN AND MORE… MOST AFRICAN AMERICAN FEMALES TRY TO BE AS WHITE AS SNOW BY COLORING THEIR SKIN AND WEARING LONG FAKE HAIR THATS BLONDE LIKE BEYONCE ASS !!! AAND WHEN I CAME AMERICA FROM SOUTH AFRICA . I NOTICE THAT MOST NBA ,NFL , AND HOLLYWOOD ACTORS AND R & B PPL LIKE JAYZ , KANYA WEST AND THE REST FOOLS TRYED TO HAVE A VERY YELLOW LOOKING BLACK FEMALE AT THEIR SIDE … BLACK MALES IN AMERICATRY THEIR BEST TO MARRY ANY WHITE TRASHY GOLD DIGGER WHEN THEIR IN THE HOOD , OR OUT AND HAVE A GOOD EDUCATION OR OUT OF HARVARD UNIVERSITY DEGREE, THEY ALL RUSH TO HAVE CHILDREN WITH THEM TO SAY THAT THEY HAVE HALF WHITE KIDS WITH STRIAGTH HAIR AND BLUE EYES LIKE THE VERY FAMOUS MICHEAL JACKSON (RIP)AND OTHERS .BLACK AMERICAS TRY THEIR BEST TO WEED OFF THEIR AFRICAN FEATURES !!!
OK THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE STAR IN THE FAMILY. IF SHE COULD DANCE AND MOVE LIKE BEYONCE, SHE MIGHT HAVE A CHANCE, BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE. NICE SONG THOUGH.
I’m sure thats what people told Janet Jackson too. Stop hating just because your not in the family.
@janet Jackme ….surely you’re not comparing Orlando Jones lil suster to Janet Jackson?
Great video and new sound.
Solonge and Her sister is so fake its sad . Solonge what about houston tx , your home .
@WAKE UP , your so right this is sad , with her sister’s connections, money and resources this is so bad I can feel
865,000 individuals need assistance with food each year in Houston and … Texas; 1,059,184 people live in poverty in our 18-county area (16.7% of the
Solange stick with acting; you are better at that. I think you R sexy though.
Finally! I been waiting on this biatch for a minute! Love the video and I love the sound she’s going with for her new album. She’s always had her own style and doesn’t apologies for it. I think shes extremly underrated. Wish people would let her stand on her own instead of always comparing her to beyonce all the damn time, they’d actually see that she’s quite talented…Can’t wait tell the album drops.
I Love it!! and i like this new musicial direction
Agree! Love the song & Video:) It’s different and Solange has a nice voice; Great job!
I like her because she does her thing kinda differently but does she really dance like that?
Solange is her own person. Doing her own thing. She stepped out of Beyonce’s shadow a long time ago with Sol-Angel and Hadley Street Dreams. Like many really talented, non-commercial artists, people sleep on Solange. “Losing You” is just okay – it’s not as good as the best work on “Hadley Street Dreams” and not as bad as the worst stuff on “Solo Star.”
I like it – it is Solange.
clown , clown with big hair solange looks like a clown . Why is she so dam fake whats her thing with south africa ! is she trying to adopt some children ??? , this whole crap seemd point less as hell the sound is okay but she seems so fake i can’t deal with this sound .
what Frank answered I am inspired that anybody able to earn $6718 in four weeks on the computer. have you seen this page (Click on menu Home more information) http://goo.gl/qSA5i
She’s a hateful witch just like her sister..different my arse..its just marketed different..
LOL, take a chill pill.
Refresing. I wish she wasnt moving so around so much but im sure it’ll grow on me. She is beautiful.
TRAVEL PEOPLE, I think that it’s beautiful that she went overseas to do her video. She is deep in South Africa were the locals live and not in the tourist area. I love it, open our minds people, and travel more. It saddens me when I don’t see enough people of color traveling to different countries. I love the video its different.
joke whatever I have travel and South Africa is beautiful but she l looks fake, this a joke, LOL , Will Smith young daughter could do better than this .
NOT ALL OF South AFRICA is beautiful, just like not all of America is beautiful…how she look fake?? you don’t even know her from a hole in the wall!!! Why you comparing her to Willow??? who sings completely different from her?? WOW!! Tell me why you really mad
umm, sexy brown pyt….sit the entire way down somewhere w/ your fake mess and ignorant broad statements about poc not traveling. maybe you’re trying to sound intelligent and well traveled but you just sound small town and ignorant. have YOU ever been out of the country? how many stamps does your passport have? how many visas have you had to cop? again, i say, have a seat.
I LOVE Solange!!! I’m glad she’s getting back to music… xoxo…
Its cool how she used local transportation in her vid, reminds me of when i went to Guatemala and traveled through the local areas not tourist.
@South africa girl your right ! this is very bad and a wacky game to solonge . Why can’t she do something in Houston TX ?
I don’t see anybody from CAPE TOWN making their video an representing it, so why not Solange. Don’t hate, i bet you wish it was you making a video of your country but its not. Go in the corner somewhere and Cry yourself a River!!!
I can’t believe these people are mad she did a video in the rural parts in Cape Town!!! So what??? Her video was GREAT!!!
I’m really liking this and the video is beautiful. Is she dropping anything soon or she just felt like putting something out? It’s nice.
I LOVE IT!!! she cant dance, but she looked great and like she had a great time. Thanks for showing Africa in a different light.
She is a hot mess , this is a joke LOL zzzzzzzzzz
AGREE HOT MESS WACK WACK
I love how Solo has her own style. Her and Bey is totally different
I LOVE….LUV…..LUV it Solo!
Solange is so funny in that video!
The Eyes…..The Eyes people….She has so many talents
That Dame Knowles family I can’t take it!
The video is nice. Melina really creates vivid visuals and I love her perspective, especially when it comes to detail.
The song is great its music that doesn’t make me feel anyway but relaxed I like the fact that its not loud and fast. I don’t care for the video though it doesn’t make since to me.
I love the video and song, its so cute and fun. I love the colorful outfits! Great job Solange!
It’s cool background music. Meaning I can bop to this at work without being distracted and it’s mellow.And since everyone cannot travel, or do not have the means, it’s actually nice to see something other than the same US streets and hoods and glamor. Maybe it’s offensive to those who live in Africa, but I’m not understanding why?
too much goin on, it feels very forced. Sometimes people want to be different so bad they do it just because. (my opinion)
YES OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE SHE LOOKS STUPID BUT SOUTH AFRICA IS NICE SHE LOOKS SO DAMN STUPID WITH THE DANCING EWWWWWW
Very clever Solange! Using a relationship as a metaphor for “US” losing Africa to recolonization at this moment, in this present day. Is anyone paying attention? We wish u the very best and hope that WE ALL can awake before it’s too late!!……..ALWAYS LOVE, Strafe & the Hard Soul Family.
Thank you soooo much for your perspective and helping us understand this metaphor. . .but, we haven’t lost Africa. Africa hasn’t lost nor will ever lose any of its preciousness. Africa remains.
LOVED IT………the song is very nice and I loved the video. I hope to hear more music from her.
I like both the song and video.I think she’s a very talented songwriter and singer.I love the fact that she is her own person and does not conform to the “norm”.Great job Solange and I will certainly purchase your new CD.
So if you hate this song, your musical taste is just basic. And that’s just the truth. Before you comment really think about the overall song. There is nothing wrong with it at all. Its chill, lyrically cool, vocals were on point, catchy. Is it a head banger or number 1 song..prolly not, but its a good song. I could honestly see Lauryn Hill doing something like this back in the day. including the video. From what I know about solange and her vid concepts they are usually alot deeper that what we think. So just b/c u dont think it the hottest there is not need to hate cuz chances are you prolly just dont understand cuz ur a musical taste is basic
*just cuz you think its not the hotness there is no need…
Freaking Cute! She looked cute and the video was cute! Great job!
Really Cooncreteloop? You all were doing so well recently with the numerous stories a day. It’s no secret that you’ve been stanning for Solange for years, but can we get some more updates on other artists/celebrities please? Making her the only story of the day? -_- Too obvious.
I absolutely love this song. It has a cool vibe. I like the video as well.
Beautiful young lady.
Dope!!!! GOOD music!!!! Soooo fresh!!!
THANKS FOR THE EXPERIENCE SOLANGE! JUST BRILLIANT AND BEAUTIFUL.
I really like the song and the video. The song is giving very 80s tease. It’s giving me Jody Watley and Madonna from the 1980s. A lot of people just don’t get Solange. She doesn’t want to be her sister. She doesn’t want to dance or do the same music as Beyonce. If she did then everyone would say she is a copy cat and that she has no personality of her own. She is her own person. I don’t think she is being fake or trying to develop some kind of likeable image for the public. She is just being herself. Her being from Houston does not define who she is as a person. Solange is just different and we should not be afraid to embrace someone who isn’t like everyone else.
She deserves a Grammy, an Oscar, an Emmy, and a Tony just for being a black woman that will dive into a pool on camera lol….nice little song. Anything sounds great after that Azaelia Banks dem0nism lol….
yet you listened to it….
I had to listen to it to know what it was talking about, just like I read your comment in order to evaluate your idiocy….
Love it! Kinda Cyndi Lauper-ish!
It’s really crappy. I mean artsy!
Lovedd It! Simply & Sweet! Solange is amazing:)
All you people who don’t like the song probably like 2 Chains and watch Love & Hip Hop. I’ve never seen such bad grammar used in my life! Do you idiots know the difference between there and their? And your and you’re? Let us all take a minute and re-evaluate our education,
This song/video is fire. The end.
I LOVE IT!!!
I like it.
I lovez it! It so gave me an 80z & 90z vibe.
Hate , this is crap , Her fan club is trying to make this sound like it’s heaven , this is all so fake . .
Isnt all videos FAKE…..LOL her “music video” is just that a video with music!! is it suppose to be FACT??…lol this isnt a biography of her life…99% OF ALL MUSIC VIDEOS ARE FAKE!! @DEMO get ya life because her’s is wealthy and talented!! This song is nice, and her video is Art…Its nice to see Cape Town in a different light instead of seeing the rich areas which is predominately owned by whites in South Africa!!
@Demo , you’re right about that it is her PR , it’s definitely terrible
Solange is different and I like it, the song is great and the video!!! Thanks SOLO for showing me another part of Cape Town!! Her PR team is doing GREAT!!! This song is amazing!!!
People are commenting and saying this video looks fake. I thought all videos and tv shows are fake. I love this video because you can tell everyone had fun doing it and no one is talking about sex and showing their ass. Keep doing you Solange.
I loved the video!! it was fun and simple…i makes me wanna brew a cup of tea,sit in a chair on the porch and relax lol… nice music direction..looking forward to hearing more
Nice track, nice melody, her lead sounds good harmonies are a bit like big sis but sound great. THE FIRST SOLANGE song I have ever liked. Hope the album has this kind of vibe. 80′s madonna ish. Good job
i loove Solange.
her style, personality and vibe is just on my level.
i would love to vibe out with her one day ..
her Hadley st dreams cd gave me everything i needed that summer…
– so im def excited for the album.
