The Musical Muse: Solange Knowles
By now, you know we have a full-fledged crush on Solange Knowles. Part DJ, part songwriter, part singer (and one hot mama to son Julez), and all artist, she's got that undefinable mixture of soul, authenticity, and, yes, unabashed style, that keeps us coming back for more and more. Did we mention daring? Knowles identifies her proudest moment, leaving her record label and management company, as "a big and scary leap that I feel like I had to take in order for me to be happy and define success on my own terms." And define she did — Knowles has a new song coming out soon ("I'm very excited!"), is rocking the turntables at high profile events around the world, and dabbling in various fashion projects. Her favorite song of the moment happens to be Cam'ron's "What Means The World To You." "The girls verse on that song is KILLER," says Knowles. "What woman doesn't care about her money, her dough, her hair, her nails? Owww!" Knowles recognizing the power in those lyrics…well, that's just another Solange Owww moment for us.
