Solange Knowles’ newest album, A Seat At The Table, is her most commercially successful yet — it hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts last month. It’s also her most political. On the record, Solange explores what it means to be black in America today. The songs in this album celebrate black culture, confront prejudice and explore the trauma of witnessing black people killed.
This is Solange’s most personal work yet, too. The album includes interviews she conducted with her parents, and she wrote most of the lyrics in the town of New Iberia, La., where her family has roots. “I wanted to reclaim that space,” she says. “I wanted to be able to go back as a descendant of my grandparents and stake my claim and create work that honored them.”
