Solange Chats About ‘A Seat at the Table’ and More in ‘Elle’

Elle magazine Solange
Gracing the cover of ELLE Magazine’s latest issue, Solange opens up about the creation of her critically acclaimed album A Seat at the Table and more.

In a sneak peek of the ELLE cover story, Solange discussed the making of her groundbreaking album A Seat at the Table saying, “I did want to create this juxtaposition, politically, of having these very hard, messy conversations but having them stylistically in a way that you can really hear me, and not the yelling, the rage,” she ruminates. “I wanted to project in my delivery what I was not achieving at all: peace and having a certain lightness and airiness that could maybe help me get closer to having more light and airiness in my life.

In the issue, she also discusses what it was like to grow up with 2 of Destiny’s Child’s members, raising her son in Idaho, and more. On top of the insightful interview, Solange also slayed her cover shoot, rocking red and white outfits:
