Solange’s Feature In COMPLEX Magazine’s June/July 2013 issue x Collabs with Kendrick Lamar on “Looks Good With Trouble” Remix

Solange looks incredible in her feature in COMPLEX Magazine’s June/July 2013 issue. Wearing chic summer-ready outfits, she flaunts her smooth, shapely legs in some mean red pumps. Here are the gorgeous photos from the feature story along with quotes:


“I wanted to make all of the creative artistic decisions but I wasn’t the one paying for it. And they didn’t fully trust me to make them,” she says. “Every decision was a battle. It was exhausting. I wanted to be in a position where not only was the music fully my body of work, but everything thereafter was also my body of work. I knew that meant I had to leave and that I had to struggle.”

“I have a mother who never took no for an answer when it came to her creative pursuits,” Solange says. “She started a hair salon in her spare bedroom and four years later had 30 employees. I have a father who was the first black student at his junior high and high school and had to do a lot to get to that point. So it’s really in my bloodline when it comes to having an idea and making it happen.”


“When I’m home, I’m just straight mommin’ it,” Solange says of life in Brooklyn, which revolves around 8-year-old Juelz. “School runs, play dates, soccer games, etc. You have to constantly fight for that balance and now I kinda got it under control.” After a hectic few weeks on tour, she’s looking forward to leaving town with Juelz later today for a two-week vacation—a week in L.A. and a week in New Orleans, where she feels very, very at home. “I go to crazy bounce clubs,” she says. “I eat crazy po’ boys, drink daiquiris. I ride my bike a lot.”

Solange graces the cover of Fader Magazine’s “Spring Style” issue. Fader never disappoints with their covers (and entire magazine); they always make sure to give them an exclusive, artistic feel. In the issue, she talks about how her music has evolved over the past 10 years.

Plus, here is a look at her Black Cab Sessions performance. We often say that we wish we came up with the The Black Cab Sessions concept because you get the opportunity to see the unfiltered talent of an artist up-close and personal. Solange, along with Dev Hynes with his guitar in tow, jammed out an acoustic version of “Bad Girls” from her new EP, True.
