Stop Everything, There’s a New Solange Video!!!

+

I was just about to sing the praises of Solange for being such a multi-talented artist–she co-directed this clip for “Lovers in the Parking Lot” off of True–but then a few minutes into squinting through the clip, in which she dances exuberantly in an empty mall at night, and I’m thinking, hrmm, maybe a little more attention to lighting next time through? The lyric “Played around with your heart, now I’m playing around in the dark,” tripped me up though. Maybe, it’s, like, a commentary on being in the dark in love? The flickering overhead lights, the stillness of the after hours and so on and so forth. But, dude, come on, you’ve got Solange to point the camera at, and she’s dancing her butt off in heart-covered pajama pants, let us see it! Not her butt, you know what I mean, although I wouldn’t complain about that either.
