Solange Knowles is looking to reintroduce herself to the music world with the much anticipated release of “Losing You.” Two days ago, we got to see a video teaser, and today, we get a behind the scenes look at its creation.
Director Alan Del Rio Ortiz reveals the classic film Clueless as Solange’s inspiration: “We’re playing a typical party game called ‘Suck and Blow.’ It was based on something Solange had seen in Clueless. She just really liked the idea of having her friends together in a room. We tried to find an interesting way to connect everyone and bring them together to show that this is her new style, her new look, her new sound. It’s kind of a reintroduction to her work.”
It’s hard to ignore the influence of art and fashion on Solange’s new direction as well. Partly influenced by the work of artist Mickalene Thomas (who designed the set), we get to see lots of vibrant colors and patterns in the wardrobe which includes Opening Ceremony, Kenzo, J. Crew, Diane von Furstenberg and more.–Nicole Brown
