Four long years have passed since Solange released her critically acclaimed sophomore set ‘Sol-Angel & The Hadley Street Dreams’.
Fast forward to today and the eclectic star is ready for round three, moments ago serving up the lead single from the as yet untitled project. Christened ‘Losing You’, the track and its accompanying video premiered literally seconds ago. As ever, we have your first listen…
‘Losing You’ may just be a winner! A catchy 2012 ode to the ‘Wanna Be Starting Somethings’ (Michael Jackson) and ‘All Night Longs’ (Lionel Richie) of the early 80s, Knowles has certainly built a career on playing on the tunes of yesteryear. If such homage will finally pay off in her favor remains to be seen, however. For, despite the high regard for the fashionista’s eclecticism, the tune is not exactly the most radio friendly.
Here’s hoping the rest of Miss Knowles offerings tip toe that fine line of staying true to herself while still serving hits that go side-by-side with radio. “Losing” may very well be the start.
