[MY FAVOURITE THING TODAY] Sisterly love. Solo and Bey. I heart it.
….since I have ‘Losing You’ stuck in my head
[TUESDAY TUNEAGE] Solange Knowles’ new video for her song ‘Losing You’ was shot right here in Cape Town, South Africa.
This is what she told Pitchfork about the concept:
When Melina [Matsoukas] and I decided to film ‘Losing You’ in South Africa, we really didn’t have a real firm concept in place. It was sort of a grab a camera and let’s go moment. I knew I wanted to capture a couple things: the vibe of our friendship and all of the crazy escapades we’ve gotten ourselves into all over the world, and the abstract and elegant Le Sape Society (Society for the Advancement of People of Elegance) formed in the Congo which was documented by Daniele Tamagni in his Gentleman of Bacongo book. We called Daniele to guide us, and some of my friends from New York came down to Cape Town and we all had a very damn good time.”
I always have such Intense Feelings about ‘poverty porn’ and think the Le Sape Society concept is well executed, but what about South African subcultures?
Anyways, let me reserve my Opinions. The video’s cute, I love the cameos by familiar faces such as ELLE Fashion Editor Asanda Sizani, and this will probably be my summer jam.
[WHEN J MEETS SOLO] You don’t have to be a genius or have a particularly high level of reading comprehension acumen to understand how much I love Miss Solange Knowles. You just have to have a functional internet connection and be able to browse this here blog.
So you an understand how much I’m geeking out over the fact that my former employer, ELLE South Africa, has brought Miss Knowles to SA. A lot. That’s how much I’m geeking out.
Because we live in this time of rampant narcissism, I’ve decided to go on a one person crusade to get ELLE to organise a meet & greet with Solange for yours truly.
Why should ELLE go to all this trouble?
I’m glad you asked, because I’ve prepared a list right here:
1. I used to work there and I made quite a wonderful contribution to the mag, even if I have to say so myself.
2. I am a known - and respected - Solange fan.
3. I have a great, engaged, wonderful online (and IRL) following, so if ELLE arranges this, it’ll be a huge #BrandPlus for them.
4. See point 3. The internet is basically a collection of ‘cool points’. There really are zero negatives that I can think of, in this scenario.
5. I’d just really like to meet her, so there….
C’mon ELLE, the ball’s in your court.
