Video: Solange & Oliver xx – “Make It Hot” (Nicole Wray Cover)

 

On her recent tour stop in London at XOYO, Solange takes us way back and brings Oliver xx from the famed The xx along for the ride. 90s R&B had so many gems that certain ones somehow sadly seem to get lost, and such we thank Solange for her service in bringing Nicole Wray’s “Make It Hot” back into the forefront of our minds and hearts.

We’re gonna be dipping and weaving to the song all weekend now. Aye!
