As you all should know by know Solange released her well anticipated album A Seat At The Table. I must say it was well worth the wait, Solange promotes and shares so much inspiration of self awareness and self love. If you have not been keeping up with Solange she has been working on this project since August of 2013. She also released a short documentary on YouTube entitled A Seat At The Table, Beginning Stages, sharing footage of "the early days of jam sessions, experimentation, and the exploring of sounds and ideas for the album" as Solange calls it. While watching the documentary you can hear snippets of songs that made the album "Don't You Wait," "Mad," and a few others.
"While some of the jam sessions featured did not make the album, they helped to create and identify the sonic tone, and the early lyrics and concepts I wrote for the project." - Solange
Shortly after releasing the documentary and album, Solange shared videos for songs "Don't Touch My Hair" and "Cranes In The Sky."
Both videos were co-directed by Solange and her husband Alan Ferguson. "Rise" one of my favorite songs from the album shares a message of self-awareness that is really needed in today's time.
"Fall in your ways, so you can't crumble, Fall in your ways, so you can sleep at night, Fall in your ways, so you can wake up and rise. Walk in your ways, so you can't crumble, Walk in your ways, so you can sleep at night, Walk in your ways, so you will wake up and rise!" - Rise, Solange Knowles-Ferguson.
Rise, shares a message like no other. Trust your path, follow that inner voice inside your head, be you so you will not have to crumble and do things your heart does not desire.
