Solange just released her third album, A Seat at the Table, where she gives us an empowering yet soft spoken message about black survival, independence, self love, sadness and healing. I love how direct and simply put this album is. When she tells you to stop doing something like in one of my favorite songs "Don't touch my hair", that is exactly what she means. Her hair, pride, and soul isn't to be played with, simply because it belongs to her and her own happiness. I think many of us can relate to this message not only as black people, but as people period. We just don't need to conform to anyone's standards, and the music video directed by her husband Alan Ferguson, represents that very well. It's like you can understand the visuals in the video while it's on mute. "A seat at the Table" isn't an album that needs much analyzation, you just have to sit and listen.
