If It Wasn't For Tony

Is it ok to like Solange Knowles...?

I have to admit the few tracks that i've heard from her up coming album Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams, have been, surprisingly impressive.

The latest track to catch some attention is a co-write with Cee-Lo entitled T.O.N.Y. The subtle message in TONY - The Other Night Why (did I do that?)... is one that 99.9% of us have felt before.... Lets not even lie.

Download TONY here.

Thoughts.

And i'm going to put it out there... Beyonce or Solange? I'm picking the latter...

anybody here her "fuck the industry sincerely signed" joint. think it was on concreteloop or something.

shes making some alright moves.

stush said...

Ive been wondering the same thing for a while now... everytime i see her she suprises me.

Shes the quirky little sister so i dont think people are going to take her seriously which is a shame.

P.s Weave does look good

Ermm hang on a minute.

Specks what do you know about the other night regrets? Don't be crushing my visions of your purity.

i really like her. It must be a pain in the ass being 'Beyonce's Sister'. I've seen her on-set a few times and she is- like the DC girls- a real professional and a nice girl. She aint bad at the singing either.

Shame her son scares the bejesus out of me though

as for the other night why? it sure is something we can all relate to (*quickly tries to think happy thoughts*)

maz said...

in agreement with stush. and i like her cuz she's so real. like the total opposite of bey. not that bey isnt real, they're just opposites.

i have yet to see solange perform live, which i hope happens with this album. so far the songs ive heard r nice. has a nostalgic sound to them. the types of songs that were out even before her time. i like that old sound tho.

boy do i have some tonys. been there, done that, aint goin there again.

yeahisaidit said...

so I have made my mind up.

Can any of you imagine Beyonce EVER doing this....

pay particular attention around 3:27secs in onwards.

Solange, I salute you.

@ yeahisaidit - I see what you mean about her son...

Wow.

Ella said...

at this current moment in time, I prefer Solange. Bey's too prim n proper-she needs to fuck up a lil bit.

lol @ the vid. Beyonce would have had his arse be taken off the stage.

and I think her son is cute... he just looks like his face should be on a box of Lucky Charms or something.

Pop Lock and Drop said...

I think its a shame people will always compare her to her sister as shes a remarkable talent in her own right.
"I decided" sounds so much like an old soul song though but I cant think of the name at all !

The Almanac said...

i have to say i had never thought of that question before this post..

but i am going to go with little sister.

i salute Beyonce's achievements, but Solange seems a bit more 'real' to me. Real in the respect of her image and substance. Till the marketing giants get hold of her anyway.

L'Oreal anyone?

that video sets her waaaaaaaaaaay apart from Bey

Here is a link to the song mentioned above.

'Fuck the industry, sincerely signed'...

http://www.zshare.net/audio/16426089ea098a86/

Its over Kanye's 'Everything I am' beat. Dont know what I think about it. Dope beat though.

Booga said...

No preference.
Do y'all think Solange's "realness" is, indeed sincerity, or is it just part of PR. If you have someone associated with you (relative, someone from a past project, etc.) break before you, you need to take a different approach if you want to be noticed at all. Otherwise people will think that you are simply a clone. Kinda the same thing Ashlee Simpson did. (Although Beyonce and Solange can actually sing...)

Phoebe said...

I like Solange a lot...I think the way she's marketing herself is pretty clever and the girl can clearly sing.

But I disagree that Beyonce wouldn't have reacted to that on-stage heckler in the exact same way. Anyone remember when she dropped down about 29 steps at a concert last year and literally DID NOT MISS A BEAT?!!! That kinda of composure clearly runs in the blood.

spyonmysoul said...

I'd say Solange too,
I really like 'TONY' and 'F@&k the Industry'

Anonymous said...

"Fuck the industry" First line : I'll never be picture perfect beyonce. Well that sums it all up.

Anonymous said...

picture perfect beyonce? nahh. I think shes more attractive than her sister any day. you seen the body on her.

Booga said...

@ anon #2- he was quoting a kanye song. and, uh, i'll give it to solange with the singing and lyrics, but wtf are you talking about?-Solange is straight up and down. to each their own I guess.

i duno man
i dont think she would be succesful if it were'nt for the fact shes beyonces younger sister
her family is firmly stuck into the music industry as well so shes got all the right connections

although beyonces kinda annoyin now
maybe it is time for the younger sister to step up n show people what shes got

william adam said...

her son looks like mini me with hair

Anonymous said...

She's dope. The kid's cute, he's just making a face. All the best to Solange.

brazen said...

The video with the dude on stage dancing is hilarious!

Her music is a million times better than her 1st album that is for sure.

Neo- london Ch1c said...

what do you mean is ok to like Solange?
