Catching Up With Solange Via the “Saint Heron” EP

Remembering Solange's dopeness and her new "Saint Heron" EP.

True story. A few months back I was checking for new concerts and saw that

Solange

was going to be in the area. A day before the show, I drove all the way to the venue only to find out the show was sold out. Downer. Fear not friends, there was a silver lining to this tragic tale; it got me back into her 2012 EP

True

. I had listened to it a little bit here and there but never really gave it a big listen. Foolish of me because I came to realize it's excellent.

It must be frustrating to be Beyonce's sister, but honestly, I don't even think of them as musical sisters because Solange's music is so different. Where Beyonce is more of a pop star, Solange's style is more R&B rooted (with a splash of new wave) and definitely has some vintage, funk undertones. I think my favorite song off the EP is

Lovers In The Parking Lot

It has been a minute

since we have heard from her

, but that doesn't mean she is going unappreciated. Solange has recently joined forces with some of the new generation of R&B stars including Cassie, Sampha and Jhene Aiko, for a compilation EP entitled,

Saint Heron

. What makes this so special is that all of these artists are looking to redefine the way in which we define R&B. They all have something unique and different about them and by joining forces they will prove that their version of R&B is more than just pianos and break up songs. Excited for the album? Me too!
