Solange Knowles's new moodboard is the inspiration you didn't know you needed A series of images and videos anticipating her upcoming album

Solange Knowles is one of the most interesting voices of the international music scene, able thanks to her talent and artistic vision to shake off the label of just being Beyoncé's sister. Her unique mix of jazz, blues and pop, along with political lyrics, focused above all on the value and the importance of Black Culture, make her a gem within the landscape of global music. All of this in addition to an original, unique, elegant, sophisticated and unexpected aesthetic.  

The album A Seat At The Table, released in 2016, contained refined productions and sweet tunes dealing with themes like racism, Black History Month and the symbolic importance of the Afro hairdo, especially in the hit song Don't Touch My Hair. The track Cranes In The Sky made Solange win her first Grammy Award in 2017. 

A few days ago, via her Instagram and Twitter profiles, the American singer announced the creation of a page on the website Black Planet, a social network where mainly men and women of colour discuss political issues, racism and social issues. The platform of the singer, divided into different sections, is particularly unmissable for the part entitled Dossier. On a black background are posted a series of visually harmonic and delicate images and videos: cowboys, rodeos and sunset landscapes alternate with Solange portraits, female bodies and the same singer doing pole dance (wearing a Fantabody). Knowles uses once again what has become her signature aesthetic, made of curved lines, earthy tones and different inspirations, which mix her Texan origins with her role as a female black artist, always with a particular focus on the woman's body. 

The website seems the further step towards the release of Solange's new album, awaited later this year. Moreover, the website features also a section with all the upcoming tour dates, meaning that her new album might be just around the corner. We can't wait.
