While the paparazzi and most keep their eyes focused on the other Knowles daughter, the more entertaining one is quietly cultivating her own niche. Trust me on this. She’ll never been a megastar and will always carry the footnote of being “Beyonce’s sister.” Nevertheless, Solange’s move to establish herself, embracing fans (specifically online) and explore her creativity in front of her newly found audience has created a greater appreciation for who and what she is, rather than isn’t.
That’s “Under Construction,” a rough mix that she gave away via her site on Friday. Couple it with the wonderful Dirty Projectors’ cover, “Stillness Is The Move,” there’s enough there to merit anticipation for her as yet untitled, third studio album.
