So, here is one more reason I like Solange! Idk, am I becoming a stan?! Miss Sol-Angel has released a song intended to be on a mixtape series titled “I Can’t Get Clearance”…… It’s titled, get this, F*ck the Industry. Wow! Didn’t expect that from Solange but you know what, I like that she puts it like it is. She states,
“Unfortunately I’m in an industry where diversity is not celebrated the way it should be. When some people see and hear something different it feels foreign to them and they don’t like that. Everyone has a choice of what they like and that’s a beautiful thing!!!
But record labels, managers, publicist, journalist, media etc… have a tendency to see something work and try to reciprocate that with another artist thinking that’s what makes success. To me what makes success is letting people be truly who they are.”
The song is recorded over Kanye West’s “Everything I Am”
