Solange graces the cover of ELLE Magazine's upcoming issue, which will be on newsstands February 21. In a preview of the upcoming cover story, Solange discussed growing up with Destiny's Child and the making of her A Seat at the Table album.
"My sister and Kelly [Rowland] were the same age, which is like a built-in best friend in the house; they were extremely close," Solange remembered of her childhood. "Writing felt like this insular thing that I could go back in my room and express all that I would observe, all the emotions that would arise. It felt like mine, my little thing."
"I did want to create this juxtaposition, politically, of having these very hard, messy conversations but having them stylistically in a way that you can really hear me, and not the yelling, the rage," Solange said of her groundbreaking album. "I wanted to project in my delivery what I was not achieving at all: peace and having a certain lightness and airiness that could maybe help me get closer to having more light and airiness in my life."
