Solange Performs ‘Viva La Vida ‘

Published: Tuesday 27th Jan 2009 by Sam

Video Removed As Requested

Solange recently participated in Yahoo Music’s ‘Cover Art’ series, offering her own spin on Coldplay’s ‘Viva La Vida’. ‘Interesting’ dancing aside (LOL), I really enjoyed this one. Solange continues to establish herself as a viable artist in her own right. Good performance.
What do you think of the performance?

    and what the hell was she doing with her hands in the beginning of the video? its like she is trying way too hard to be someone she is not.

    It was excellent! All you guys are high on something if you didnt think that was original and that her vocals were clear as ice!

    The comments about fitting in somewhere else annoy me. Heaven forbid Solange doesn't want to be pigeon hold as an R&B artist forever. Stupid bitching haters.

    @ Hunt-For-Me

    HER VOCALS WERE A DAMN MESS! HOW CAN YOU SAY CLEAR AS ICE? LOL! Yes, I could understand the words she was saying – if thats what you mean by “clear as ice” but it was a MESS! HER VOCALS WERE A MESS! Its not a song she should be singing at all or even TRYYYYY TO COVER! she ruined it!!!

    and this goes out to those artists who want to cover a popular song: MAKE SURE YOU CAN ACTUALLY SING IT EQUALLY AS GOOD or BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL!

    @ 8:39…

    no one is pigeon holding her. and no one has. we sorta realized that when she came out with her last album. but dont cover a song that your voice is not capable of singing. thats just plain OBVIOUS.

    I didn’t think it was half bad. Vocally she wasn’t straining either cept maybe the ad-libs towards the end. But the majority of you might just not be used to the song being sung by a female. It was a pretty good take and cover.

  13. you already know January 28, 2009

    PLEASE SOLOANGE SIT YO ASS DOWN. YOU JUST RUINED A GOOD SONG. AND I LOVE ME SOME COLDPLAY. DON’T YOU EVER AGAIN IN YOUR LIFE SING A COLDPLAY SONG, OR ANY SONG FOR THAT MATTER THAT IS LIKE THIS.

    AND IS IT JUST ME OR IS SOLOANGE BEING REBELLIOUS ABOUT GETTING VOCAL TRAINING BECASUE HER VOICE DOES NOT SOUND TRAINED AT ALL.

    I see this is the 2nd blog Solange has requested for the video to be removed. The first one I noticed was Concrete Loop. She knows it was horrible. LOL.
