Why do we like this?

Though I'm definitely late to the Solange party, I would say she is my favorite Knowles. I'm no Bey hater, I recognize her importance in the pop culture continuum and all that jazz, but to be frank I can't listen to her. Beyonce's songs always make me extremely self-conscious, and by the time she's telling me to "put a ring on it," I'm painfully aware I probably can't afford that ring. Solange, on the other hand, is a more enjoyable listening experience for me.

Her TRUE EP was awesome; pop with substance, sweet but weighty. From the fantastically dapper trans-continental video for "Losing You" to the bittersweet shuffle of "Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work," the project was teenage summer love encapsulated. I can almost swear I feel a warm breeze when some of those synths hit.

As an added treat to recently announcing the formation of her new label, SAINT Records, she also released a new version of "Looks Good With Trouble" from the TRUE EP, now featuring 100% more rhymes from Compton's own Kendrick Lamar.

The West Coast MC sounds more like Andre than usual as he details a lovelorn trip to London, stuck on a tour bus watching old Hollywood classics, wishing a certain someone was along for the ride. While I'm obviously being a bit of a dick (though not without reason), the two certainly have a musical chemistry that makes me wonder what more collaboration would sound like.

Don't sleep on Solange (like I did) -- she's ill.
