Solange on Fallon

Last night, Solange absolutely slayed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, giving one of the best TV performances I’ve seen all year. She sang “Losing You,” the single from her great True (our favorite EP of the year), as one long extended sigh. She exchanged badass choreographed dance steps with her backing band, which included Dev Hynes on guitar and Chairlift’s Patrick Wimberly on drums. And she radiated the sort of star presence that would do her sister proud. Seriously, you should watch this. It’s below.

True is out now on Terrible.

  3. It’s awesome to see fewer and fewer publications lead off any story about her by mentioning she’s Beyonce’s sister. No surprise with performances like this, damn.

  4. Also, can we all agree on the mega-sexiness of Dev Hynes?

  6. Oh, this was amazing, let’s watch again.

  7. Can we revote for indie crush of the year?

  8. How cool would it be if sometime down the line Solange and Dev Hynes either formed a group together or just did a team recording where they both lay down vox. Was thinking and half expecting how great it would be if his voice came in on this track. Not that I would change a thing about it. And more dance routines, please.

    Somewhat separate thought – it’s like Solange gives Hynes the straight for the juggular songwriting focus he lacked in Blood Orange’s release.
