You are invited. The time has finally come to pull up a seat. This table’s conversation might be a little different than your typical christened Sunday evening, but it will be well worth it. Today, our boss lady, singer-songwriter and artist Solange presents to us A Seat At The Table, the long-awaited full-length music project that has been brewing for four years has premiered everywhere digitally. We all know that the truth isn’t always comfortable, and with A Seat At The Table, Solange highlights both the troubling conversations that come along with being a Black woman in the midst of cultural and socio-political shifts in America, and the truth and triumphs that come along with being a part of an ever-resilient, multifaceted, chosen people. She invites us all to get honest with her.
Hear vocal assistance and narration from some of R&B’s most influential young and old: Lil’ Wayne, Master P, Kelly Rowland, Sampha, Kelela, Dev Hynes, Tweet, Q-Tip and more. Also, in honor and appreciation of Solange’s parents, Mrs. Tina Lawson and Matthew Knowles, A Seat At The Table can be listened to from many perspectives, encapsulating Solange’s veracity, angelic vocals and dedication to her people. If you missed it, check out the digital book released including accompanying lyrics, poetry and visuals. Physical CD and vinyl copies will be available for pre-order soon, to be sent out later this year.
We are, as always, so proud and in awe of you, Solange, for your continued commitment to your art and honesty, unapologetic love and justice. Get into A Seat at The Table below and be sure to purchase here.
