Stream: Solange, "Lovers in the Parking Lot"

"Lovers in the Parking Lot" is the second, compulsively replay-able single from Solange's upcoming True EP, a tender but concise assessment of the damages incurred by offering her love indecisively. Played around with your heart/ Guess I played myself from the start, she admits plainly, self-conscious if not quite apologizing. Producer Dev Hynes' beat interpolates Schooly D and incorporates trails of blinking piano that conjure Kanye West's downcast Late Registration tracks, making plenty of room for Solange's light and confident vocals. At 3:24, she makes a break for a tremulous solo, teasing out her caaauuuugghht admission of infidelity into a winking, almost-happy nod. That run perhaps mimics En Vogue's 1992 girl-power anthem "My Lovin (You're Never Gonna Get It)," but "Parking Lot" stands firmly on its own as an affirmation for this decade's peacefully imperfect women.
