Solange Slays March Cover of Elle

solange-20And the black girl magic continues…

Solange Knowles has landed the cover of Elle‘s March 2017 issue, and the slay is serious.

In the accompanying cover story, the younger Knowles star discusses growing up around one of the most popular girl groups of all time, Destiny’s Child, and the process of creating her hit album A Seat At the Table.

“My sister and Kelly [Rowland] were the same age, which is like a built-in best friend in the house; they were extremely close,” Solange remembered of her childhood. “Writing felt like this insular thing that I could go back in my room and express all that I would observe, all the emotions that would arise. It felt like mine, my little thing.”

She stated on A Seat At The Table,

“I did want to create this juxtaposition, politically, of having these very hard, messy conversations but having them stylistically in a way that you can really hear me, and not the yelling, the rage. I wanted to project in my delivery what I was not achieving at all: peace and having a certain lightness and airiness that could maybe help me get closer to having more light and airiness in my life.”
