Solange Speaks (And Sings) Her Peace

Apr 17th, 2009 // 7 Comments

Solange’s jilted-Jane track “T.O.N.Y.” was one of my favorite parts of her woefully undernoticed Sol-Angel And The Hadley St. Dreams, but it would appear that just in time for spring, this smooth song is starting to take off. It’s making inroads on the R & B airplay charts, while Ms. Knowles–and her band–brought the track to last night’s episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where she dressed it up with a pleading intro that only makes the sweet pop of the actual track go down even more smoothly.

  1. Between this record and the Ryan Leslie and Raphael Saadiq ones, it’s been a good 12 months or so for criminally overlooked (or “woefully undernoticed”, whichever you prefer) R&B albums.

    IAWTC.

    Word up to the Ryan Leslie love. I’d also like to hope and dream (no pun intended) that more people are pressing play on Love Vs. Money.

  3. It’s unfortunate that the awesomely amazing video for this song has disappeared from Youtube (and every other non-Chinese or Russian) video site, though.

  4. The “pleading intro” is actually a cover of Shuggie Otis “Island Letter” for those who give two shits. Solange is cool. Like the vibe more than what her sister is doing these days.

  5. @digablefranchise i may give more than two shits, in fact. thank you!

  6. @TauwanI just wasted another couple of hours watching Ryan build tracks on Youtube. Man, to get him and Jon Brion in a studio together…
