Solange Knowles is getting her shine in the spotlight. The fashion “it-girl” graced the cover of Fader Magazine.
Inside, Solange dishes on the change in direction her music has taken since becoming a solo artist.
“[Sol-Angel] was put out almost five years ago. [In] four years, there’s been so much artistic growth, so much growth just as a woman in [my] 20s, but especially as an artist. You’re exposed to so much more from age 21 to 26, and you sure as hell care a lot less. It’s been a little weird, for me, getting feedback—the last album was so different than this one. I am like, Yeah, I was 20 when I started writing it. Is that supposed to be shocking? If it sounded similar, that would be really strange.”
