WATCH: Solange Knowles — “Bad Girls”

@solangeknowles unplugged. Worth hearing

Here’s our theory:  Solange is the more interesting of the Knowles sisters, partly by necessity.  There’s no doubt she loves her sister Beyonce.  But we also suspect that it was clear very early on that she’d need to define herself apart from the long shadow cast by her sister.   Revisit the Sol Angel album.  Note that she’s been working with more indie producers like Dev Hynes (Lightspeed Champion).  She’s coming at things a little differently.  Yeah, her family is music industry royalty.  But it’s also nice to see her making some different choices unlike, say, Janet Jackson.

Again, that’s our theory and we’re sticking to it.

Anyway, check out Solange’s voice on this stripped down version of “Bad Girls.”
