In Control SOLANGE by Beyonce


Beyoncé interviewed Solange for the latest issue of Interview magazine.
During the Q&A-style piece, the two discussed Solange’s critically acclaimed 2016 album A Seat at the Table.









 Solange brought it all full circle, getting on the phone with her big sis to talk about the challenges and achievements of a lifetime.


BEYONCÉ: Are you exhausted? I know you had a parent-teacher conference ...

SOLANGE: Yeah, I actually had to fly to Philly because there were no flights left to New York. And now I'm driving from Philly to New York. Well, I'm not driving, but ...

BEYONCÉ: You have to drive? From Philly?

SOLANGE: Yeah. But it's not bad. It's only an hour and 40 minutes.

BEYONCÉ: Oh my God! Rock star. Well, it is a bit strange, because we're sisters and we talk all the time, to be interviewing you. But I'm so happy to interview you because, clearly, I'm your biggest fan and I'm super proud of you. So we'll start from the beginning. Growing up, you were always attracted to the most interesting fashion, music, and art. You were obsessed with Alanis Morissette and Minnie Riperton and mixing prints with your clothes ... when you were only 10 years old. You would lock yourself in a room with your drum set and a record player and write songs. Do you remember that? Of course you do.

SOLANGE: I do. [both laugh]

BEYONCÉ: What else attracted you growing up?

SOLANGE: I remember having so much perspective about my voice, and how to use my voice, at such a young age—whether it was through dance, poetry, or coming up with different projects. I guess I always felt a yearning to communicate—I had a lot of things to say. And I appreciated y'all's patience in the house during all of these different phases. They were not ever very introverted, quiet phases.
