In support of her new song "T.O.N.Y.", Solange Knowles has premiered a Vashtie-directed music video, featuring cameos from Cee-Lo Green of Gnarls Barkley and Kid Cudi. In the black-and-white music video, she is seen going down the stairs and walking straight through the streets. Her slow walk eventually becomes a hurried run with a couple of men and women following her from behind.

"T.O.N.Y." is a song narrating about a consequence of stepping into a one-night-stand relationship. The track comes off Solange's second studio album "Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams", which has come out in North America since August 26 via Music World and Geffen Records.

"By the end of the project [Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams], I had worked with all of the producers and artists I had ever dreamed of including Q-Tip, Boards of Canada, and Mark Ronson ..." Solange said referring to the recording process of the effort. "When I got a call saying the legendary Lamont Dozier would take the time out to write with little old me I was ecstatic beyond words."
