The colorful Solange takes us around Brooklyn in her newest video for the 80s inspired “Locked in Closets.” Love the energy this lady always brings to all her visuals.
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!

This vintage Brooklyn Afro-boheme themed new Solange video is exactly the dose of artistic inspiration we needed today. The song, “Losing You,” also has an 80s pop throwback vibe to it. The dusty visuals show Solange in an African-esque “village” with dapper gentlemen sipping tea interspersed with scenes of her posse of Brooklynite boho pals frolicking about in their unfairly gorgeous, stylish youth.
We want more where this came from, promptly. Totes dreamy.

Well, alright. Chromeo has dropped quite the video for their groovy “When The Night Falls” tune featuring Solange. And how do we say this without just saying it? We’ll just say it: there’s a lot of impregnation going on here, guys. Brace yourself.
