ICYMI: One of my #BetterGirls inspos and favorite artists (ever ever ever) dropped her third full-length album titled A Seat at the Table, with a digital book on Thursday night. The artist herself, Ms. Solange Knowles calls A Seat at the Table, “a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing.” This 21-track masterpiece features sounds from Kelela, Q-Tip, Kelly Rowland, Lil Wayne, Dev Hynes, Sampha, Moses Sumney, The-Dream, BJ the Chicago Kid, Sean Nicholas Savage and Tweet. So tonight, Solange announced her two latest visuals, “Don’t Touch My Hair” and “Cranes in the Sky”, directed by her and her husband, Alan Ferguson. And let me tell you, the world needed this album and these bold, beautiful visuals. I’ll let the music speak for itself.

Check ’em both below…  

Don’t touch my hair
When it’s the feelings I wear
Don’t touch my soul
When it’s the rhythm I know
Don’t touch my crown
They say the vision I’ve found
Don’t touch what’s there
When it’s the feelings I wear

I tried to drink it away
I tried to put one in the air
I tried to dance it away
I tried to change it with my hair
