Rocking retro style, the 'T.O.N.Y.' songstress has a lot of fun with her friends in the clip filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.
Solange Knowles has dropped the visuals for her new song "Losing You". Sporting retro outfits, the younger sister of Beyonce Knowles hangs out with her equally fashionable friends in Cape Town, South Africa, dances erratically on the street and at a party, as well as takes a dip in a swimming pool.
Following the release of the video, she wrote on Twitter, "So humbled, & grateful for the overwhelming response to 'Losing you'." Her celebrity friend Janelle Monae was one of them who heaped praise for the clip and the song as tweeting, "Solo! So proud of you!!! This video & song=certified JAM!!!! LOVE. Congrats!"
Explaining the concept of the Melina Matsoukas-directed clip, the 26-year-old told Pitchfork, "When Melina 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," the R&B artist added. "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."
"Losing You" will be featured in Solange's third studio album which is still untitled. She once described the track as being "eclectic with '80s references and African percussion influences."
