Kind of awkward but imagine being interviewed by your Superstar big sister who does almost the same thing that you do. That was the case of Solange as she was interviewed by her big sister Beyonce where the pair talked about the making of Solange’s latest album ‘A seat at the table’.
The sisters also talk about growing up in Texas, the evolution of Solange’s sound, the influence of their mum on their lives and the mutual admiration they have for Master P.
Find excerpts of the interview below…
Beyonce: Oh my God! Rock star. Well, it is a bit strange, because we’re sisters and we talk all the time, to be interviewing you. But I’m so happy to interview you because, clearly, I’m your biggest fan and I’m super proud of you. So we’ll start from the beginning. Growing up, you were always attracted to the most interesting fashion, music, and art…. and mixing prints with your clothes … when you were only 10 years old. You would lock yourself in a room with your drum set and a record player and write songs. Do you remember that?
Solange: I do. [both laugh]
Beyonce: I remember thinking, “My little sister is going to be something super special,” because you always seemed to know what you wanted. And I’m just curious, where did that come from?
Solange: I have no idea, to be honest! I always knew what I wanted. We damn sure know that I wasn’t always right. [both laugh] But I’d sit firm, whether I was right or wrong.
