Solange is quite happy. And fierce. And having a blast for a girl that’s seemingly losing someone in her latest “Losing You.” Everything, and we do mean everything, is oh so right about the eclectic video shot in Capetown, South Africa. Solange doesn’t take herself too seriously, neither do her friends who made the trek with her to shoot the visual, according to Pitchfork. Co-written and produced by Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange), directed by Melina Matsoukas, the “shoot as you go” video captures Solange and friends trekking through Capetown with the Le Sape Society (Society for the Advancement of People of Elegance) formed in the Congo. The singer is high fashion, runway ready, as is her crew. The bold prints are dazzling, but it’s the fun adventures that reel you in.
Although Solo sings, “Tell me the truth boy, am I losing you for good? We used to kiss all night, but now there’s just no use,” melancholy is non-existent. The crew pair up on bikes, Solo lays atop a stack of mattresses, her friends play in her big curly hair, they dance in the streets, play games with beer bottles and jump in a pool fully clothed. Solo playfully dancing in her pantsuits and pumps is pretty much the most awesome thing. Ever. Vibrant is the one word we’d use to describe “Losing You.” The people of Capetown, Solange and friends, Le Sape Society, just breathes beautiful life into the air. Welcome back Ms. Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams!
