    • RihYonce November 6, 2016

    She KILLED IT!! Woah!! Come through Solo!

  6. Brandy November 6, 2016

    I wish I was relevant enough to still perform at things like this, but my career peaked in the 90s.

    • jackson November 6, 2016

      I guess you could look back on the popularity you once had.

    • RoyalKev November 6, 2016

      You seem awfully pressed. A “quote” from Brandy in a Solonge post? Really? Time and place sweetheart…

    Falsetto was a lil off, but she brought it home at the end. She really grown into her own. I like how she didn’t just do the same ol band and the backup singers to the left setup. They were apart of the performance. You can tell that she was allowed to explore and try things to figure herself out.

    • LB November 6, 2016

      I’m still waiting for Ri to get the “hum” right in Work… Let me know when she figures that out

        Rihanna sings complete circles around solange. Lets keep it cute and on topic.

        I think its so funny how ppl bash rihannas voice but praise others whose voice is far weaker.I feel bad about making this comment but I just had to throw that out there.

        Anyway…I just love solo esthetic. The whole grove and feel was on point…this goes to shows that everyone docent have to have a whitney houston voice. Its all in how your music makes ppl feel. By the end I was literally dancing.

  8. iamdiego November 6, 2016

    Yaaaasss!!! I’m so happy for her. You did that Solo. (side note) The only person who could ever play Beyonce in a movie is her baby sister. They look so much alike..

    • TRUTH SERUM November 6, 2016

      They do look alike but Solo gives me Tracy Ellis / Diana Ross tease. Love the album and great first performance Solo!

  9. B&B November 6, 2016

    Alright now Solange! I love her vibe she has really grown into her own.

  10. King z November 6, 2016

    Umm she messed up so much of her own lyrics in cranes in the sky

    Overall she did well and gave a good aesthetic but vocally she was off

    • Jason November 6, 2016

      It seemed like she was nervous, but she pulled it off! Great Job Solange!!

    • Kwinzy November 6, 2016

      Just a little bit of nerves but she still ATE nonetheless. Hope she performs at the Soul Train awards.

  11. Melanin God November 6, 2016

    Slayyy a bit Solange that was beautiful and the aesthetic was amazing as usual the headpiece for CITS was breathtaking. Now for the detractors this was her 1st major live television performance like cut her some slack yea she was a little pitchy and she may have flubbed some lyrics but she was obvi nervous this is HUGE for her! I’m proud of her I bought the album it’s amazing it deserves all the acclaim it’s getting and I hope this generate some more sales for her she said dropping physical copies this upcoming week!

  12. RihYonce November 6, 2016

    Solange slayed ! She was little nervous because this was a big performance for her but she did fine. I loved both outfits. It’s crazy how much she looks like her sister. Especially when bey wears her hair darker

  13. RihYonce November 6, 2016

    My Girl Teairra Mari EP drops December 2nd ! ? I’m ready for my girl to bring that 90’s R&B back ??? her snippets she’s be teasing are fire ! Y’all have to check for it when it drops

    • Mark111 November 6, 2016

      No thanks.

      • RihYonce November 6, 2016

        on’t be hater & act like she’s ever made a bad song. But whatever there are plenty others who are interested in her comeback ✌?️✌? real talent is always recognized sooner or later

  14. RihYonce November 6, 2016

  15. Kyree November 6, 2016

    Obviously she was a bit nervous cause she messed up a bit on the first verse on (cranes in the sky). But its alright. (of course i messed up on the lyrics Ike, I wrote it) lol but over all it was good. Thats what happens sometimes when u actually sing it live. Thats my favorite song on the album tho. Solange do your thing. Calm down dont be nervous you dont have anything to prove. Your Beyonce’s sister. Thats enough. Lol

    • Bish in Africa November 6, 2016

      * She has nothing to prove cuz she a Bey sister??* Your foolishness is alarming

  16. RoyalKev November 6, 2016

    Solange’s stage presence have gotten better with time! She looked so elegant and moved quite gracefully! I’m loving how she’s the touch of Badu & Amel Larrieux in this decade! Well done!

    … Btw, I love how the Knowles sisters get thick out of no where! I remember when Solo used to be that little skinny teenager!

  17. Heyyyyy Yaaaaa November 6, 2016

    The crane in the sky set was really good..the whole vibe,that lil dancing,her crown and the lighting for some reason made me connect more to that song. She’s clearly unique! she needs to surf on the psychedelic/mysterious image it’s better cuz it makes people curious and as soon as she starts singing they enter in her world.

  18. Fatusankoh November 6, 2016

    You go Solang you slay the whole album is very good I love her

  19. Pat November 6, 2016

    Forgot her own words n pitchy n spots but with time n booking stages she ll b a must see live act

    • BEY>RIH November 6, 2016

      Yea she was a little nervous but she will soon find that power that enables her sister to do any and everything on stage. I see her following her sister’s path and becoming a stage-slayer!!

    She was a little nervous which surprised me but the last big non festival stages she did were in like 2008 wmas and fashion rocks She did good tho overall i hope she does more shows and gets a tour
