Solange Knowles Covers Hipster Band Dirty Projectors

What do you do if you wanna be a pop star but you’re Beyonce’s little sister? Wouldn’t you hate it if you were in the shadow of a multi-platinum, uber-ultra millionaire pop-icon? It’s like every time you do an album, folks bitch that you’re not Beyonce. Well…uh….that’s like a really big weave to fill. Guess that’s why Solange shaved all her shit off.
What better way to distance yourself from your pop icon big sis than to cover the Dirty Projectors – the hottest hipster band on the scene. Solange just dropped a cover of “Stillness Is The Move” – and it’s kinda super hot!! I didn’t even realize Solange could sing till I heard this. Work it out, girlfrrraan.
I’m so glad black people are turning to indie music for inspiration. My only gripe about Solange’s version is that it’s a touch too R&B. Just because you’re a black singer doesn’t mean you’re chained to R&B. Solange, you’re not Beyonce – you have the power to be completely different. Invent something new! I guess I’m kinda hoping for Solange to be the “M.I.A.” to Beyonce’s “Sasha Fierce.” Is that wishful thinking?
