Video: Solange Knowles ‘Losing You’

02 October 2012, 18.36 | Posted in Music, celebrity, video | 1 comment »

We wrote about the making of the Solange Knowles video for the song “Losing You” and now we have the finished product.  Filmed in South Africa, it is a surprisingly sweet song about lost love. Give a listen and see if it doesnt somehow it reminds of vintage Madonna…and something else which is so darn familiar and yet I cannot name it but it’s 80s new wave, that much I know! [UPDATE: Okay so it's produced by Blood Orange's Devonte Hyndes which explains the 80s synth sound, which also shows up in his song "Champagne Coast."]

As for style, it is of course off-the-charts G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S., the people, the fashion, the lovingly shot local scene shots, it’s a stunner flat out (Note to SGP: you are gonna DIE over the menswear). And then there’s the added fun of watching Solanges dance moves and seeing the connection between her and her older sister. By the end, like me, you may find yourself utterly charmed by La Hermana and rooting for her to win.

Just ’cause Solange’s status as a fashionable, Ft. Greene, Brooklyn it girl is in full bloom and paying returns, you didn’t think she was going to put down her music aspirations, now did you? Nope, in fact she is right now in Cape Town, South Africa, filming the video to an upcoming single, titled, “Losing You.” An album will follow, the third for Solange, who has song writing credits including “Get Me Bodied” and Upgrade U,” written for her sister, Beyonce. While working on the video, Solange is also shooting for an editorial in an upcoming issue of Elle magazine.
